You know those days… you’re minding your own business and doing housework or working on a project when suddenly Anxiety, Depression or Misery grabs you by the shoulder, whispers (or yells) “Time For An Adventure” and whisks you off somewhere until you’re looking at the world through their veil, or up at a distant lightContinue reading “Sudden Descents”

“A Real Catastrophe”
Lin-Manuel Miranda was right. 44.5 IS going straight to hell. He’s the real catastrophe. Between that awful, evil statement about Puerto Rico today and this article on Vox, I might explode from rage. And I don’t even have any relatives there – just an ex-coworker from there. I can’t imagine what folks who have family/friendsContinue reading ““A Real Catastrophe””
So Much Going On In the World
It’s the time of year when sorrows overflow. Hurricane season is beating up the coasts, from the Caribbean and the US southeast to South Asia on up to freaking Nepal. Brutal forest fires line the whole West Coast of America. Rohingya refugees flee from Myanmar to flood-wracked Bangladesh. Earthquakes in Mexico. We’re fighting real NazisContinue reading “So Much Going On In the World”
Just A Quick One….
Working 13 hrs straight really sucks.
No Justice For Philando Castile
I’ve been trying to figure out what to say, here. The man who shot another man – he shot an innocent man, a man who did *everything* right according to law and public opinion – was acquitted. It’s not like I’ve seen justice for others. The list of names to say is very long. TheContinue reading “No Justice For Philando Castile”
Sand in the Tank
I feel like hell. I swear, I think I have been bone-tired for 10 years. Part of it is, of course, the 5 years of crazily bad health combined with “yes you STILL have mono” in the mid- to late aughts. Not good for a body to go through. But another part of it isContinue reading “Sand in the Tank”
I am being denied Services I Paid For…
And so is the rest of America. We PAY for those governmental agencies that are currently being censored on Twitter and in general. The EPA was not allowed to tell people who *depend on their grants* that they weren’t going to get their money. NASA, the Parks Service, and other organizations that are paid forContinue reading “I am being denied Services I Paid For…”
The Person Who Made “Rebel Princess” A Thing
I’ll be honest: I’ve known for a long time I loved Carrie Fisher, but I didn’t know I LOOOVED Carrie Fisher. I remember being all about Luke when, at the tender age of 7, I first saw “Star Wars” (what is now referred to as A New Hope). It wasn’t so much about himContinue reading “The Person Who Made “Rebel Princess” A Thing”
