      I started blogging in 2003. Since then I’ve written well over a million words. There was a time when I wrote two or three articles a day. I thought that the writing mattered, that it made a difference. It did to some people, but not to many. Seven billion people have a lot of momentum, […]

All meetinged out

I had 12 meetings on my calendar today. TWELVE. No one is that important.

Anyway, we’re still in R&R mode since I won’t be vacationing any time soon.

There are bloggers in this country who can not get away for vacation until September. They’re tired, they’re cranky and they are irritable with their bosses in the real world. My group has the sweetest people on earth. (Hey, thanks for the cupcakes today!) Imagine what it’s like for them to have to put up with me.

Some bloggers haven’t been on vacation since 2011. But for price of a grande Flat White at Starbucks, you can give this blogger a much needed extended weekend this summer.

With your gift, the blogger will have the energy to write more. You can give her the gift of a new bathing suit. A hat. Sunscreen. In return, she will send you postcards from her destination. (She just got a new passport for that quick getaway to Canada)

Don’t you want to make a difference to some blogger’s life? To help her get through the Trump era so that she can help YOU get through the Trump era? Isn’t it worth one Venti? One lemon raspberry biscotti?

Thank you.

(I have no idea how this thingy works)


Trump pulled us out of the UN Human Rights commission. Always a good sign.

And then there’s this:

Yeah, I’m betting the specter of losing Medicare might even get some of the most dedicated older Trumpers’ attention.

(Oh, yes, he would do that. Social security too. Yes, we know you’ve paid into both all your working life and you don’t have a pension. He does not care. Neither does the rest of the GOP. Welcome to post-rational America!)

Walk home song according to my mental state:


Morning Walk

If we don’t take a little break from all the bad, we will wear ourselves out. We have to keep this going for as long as possible.

Hold hands, look both ways before crossing the street, watch out for one another.
