Finally we have rain! We need it, we need a lot of it and we need sanity in the political world, A LOT OF IT! As Obama completes the last months of his 8 years, I have never been more worried. PLEASE DON’T LEAVE US O! Don’t leave us with the Donald and his band of:Steve Bannon, the White Supremacist, Rudy, Newt, his kids running his business and advising him on governmental affairs? Really? And I’m surprised that I was depressed yesterday, itching to grab the phone and call you. But it’s better that you aren’t here for this and to make matters worse in late afternoon we got news that Gwen Ifill died at 61 of cancer. I know, probably the two most important sources of news for you were The New York Times and PBS Newshour. Gwen was someone you trusted, a loss!
Tomorrow we’re off to the annual National Writing Project Meeting, this year in Atlanta. Early in our HVWP history we met in Atlanta for a conference. The mood of the day will not be good but we’ll need to group hug, reminding us we are in this together. Dark days ahead but we are together.
I have been here before- picking myself up after election losses but how do we survive Trumpworld? I don’t see a silver lining here. Bring back Bush! What? ?
Good thing we have this writing community, right?
