Home Alone

At present we have no national leader, no actual commander in chief – the person filling the position of “president” lacks any knowledge or understanding of world history, geography, or politics. He has no experience or understanding of the structure of our government, the legislative process, or the relationships among the branches of governnent. No understanding of the dances of diplomacy, compromise, or negotiation. No patience, maturity, or ability to see events from any perspective except how he imagines the event will affect the way others regard him. And no interest whatsoever in learning or changing.

The present situation is awful enough on a dull day. But, what if there is a serious crisis of some kind, any kind? What if circumstances arise in which we need a national leader or a commander in chief?

Truly, we are like small children left alone, hoping the house doesn’t catch fire.

Old Homeplace

This is a corner of the house where I grew up. I have always loved the color.

Chakra Stones

I have had a set of chakra stones in the back of a dresser drawer for years. I have no idea what chakra means or what the stones are supposed to do. I have mocked the whole idea of healing crystals because it sounds so improbable. But who knows?

I love this picture

At the zoo!

Ready for the next KAL

A Tweet Means Nothing

Just a reminder – despite all the news articles, Trump did not, in fact, make any changes to the military’s policy or practices with respect to transgender servicepeople (boy, isn’t THAT an awkward word).

All he did was post a few tweets on the subject.

Stay Tuned

During my 45 minute commute to work, blog entries seem to spring up fully formed, articulate, humorous or insightful, and perfectly composed, only to be promptly forgotten as soon as I park.

No more!  I am determined to post a little more often than the ‘never’ that has been the rule for awhile.  Stay tuned.
