Dear T and Slicers,
We are now beyond the half-way mark for this 10th March Marathon and sadly, this year I’m having more trouble than usual finding topics to write about. It’s not that I’m not living life actively but yes, I’m weighed down. My friend Agita wakes up every morning with a headache. I wake up every morning praying it was just a nightmare and HRC is our president but no… the nightmare is not a nightmare, it’s our REALITY.
Sorry, I wish I could post my snow pics or something from my window now that the fresh snow is bathed in sunshine. I can’t today. Forty-five’s budget just dropped with eep cuts to pubic ed, the arts, the state department, the EPA, the poor etc and too many Americans are looking away, chuckling over his tweets, Republicans are salivating their control of Congress to strip social programs following blindly, the “deplorables”, taking up 45’s white supremacist wink and nod to become his Storm Troopers.
I’m sure that my slicer-friends will want to cheer me up, offer me alternatives and of course, I am taking a activist stand
For now there’s NO EXIT!!!! and we are officially tarnished by the beasts in our garden of democracy.
I do promise to shut down MSNBC and get out into that fresh sunshine- take a dive into the deep freeze but I’ll return to that nightmare tonight and wake up tomorrow and 45 will still be with us to drop more bombs.
Fingers crossed that Saturday’s storm will be canceled and I can attend attend a meeting in support Syrian refugees living in Westchester.
We are living in the darkest times of my life. Glad you aren’t here to see this.
