2022 1/2

I’ve a mind to write a bit again, but for now, here’s a song I heard as I was driving today that I wanted to share. Amerika v 6.0 by Steve Earle Look at ya Yeah, take a look in the mirror now tell me what you see Another satisfied customer in the front of the line…

And just like that

Tomorrow is Thanksgiving. I’m happy about that because it means that I have the next two days off. It’s not a big holiday for me or my family and hasn’t really been in the last few years. Sometimes we do traditional food, other years not so much. I hope whatever way you choose to enjoy…

the work continues

Yesterday, January 6, 2021, is a day that will (should) go down in history, but for now, it will (should) be studied and serve as YET ANOTHER example of (the delusion of) white supremacy in this country. I know some of you will read that and not believe me or not want to read on….

dancing in the streets

This morning, the election was called for Joe Biden to become the President-elect and Kamala Harris as the Vice President-elect, a truly historic achievement as she is the first woman, first Black woman, first Indian person, and first South Asian person in the role. Most of the day I’ve spent sighing with relief at the…

make-up post

Friends – I went to bed around 10 pm last night without writing here. I still didn’t get 7 hours of sleep because my eyes popped open at 5:30 am, and yes, I realize that would be 7 1/2 hours of sleep but according to my Fitbit, I was ‘awake’ for 55 minutes. Most of…

just nothing

I’m here at my keyboard, and I just have nothing really to say. The country is still waiting for the election to be called. Vote counting is still being done in Georgia, Pennsylvania, Nevada, and North Carolina. I did not do some of the things I was supposed to do today. I did some other…

up & down day

I didn’t sleep much or that well. Tried to break through the noise of all the commentators about the election. Still no official result. Was irritable and anxious in the morning. But then, I got a job offer! The company I’ve been working for on contract through an agency offered a part-time position with them…

Election Day

Some of us have been waiting 4 years for this day. But of course, with the pandemic, voting started earlier than usual with mail-in voting or ballot drop-offs, plus in-person voting. But polls close at 8 pm in whatever time zone you’re in. It’s 5:38 pm Pacific from where I’m writing so some east coast…

November is here

I would normally take some time to recap October, but I remembered too late that I meant to write earlier (if that makes sense). So I’ll just take a moment to say that the presidential election (as well as the election of many other positions) is this Tuesday. I’ve already voted. The state officials had…

September wrap-up

Since I’ve been almost writing every week, it leaves the monthly wrap-up as kind of rehashing of things I’ve already talked about. But, just for fun, here’s the month in review up til Thursday of last week: I watched Barbara a couple times. I did a poetry feature for Viral Poetry Series and participated in…
