I took a personal day to start the lengthy and emotionally charged task of going through and clearing out a large storage space. I notice how my things are now mixed in a box with my husband's, as if either of us has ever been not part of the other, as if any of us can be separated in this world. After all, we are all connected. Pardon me as I repeat myself.
After a day of many hand washings, I cross paths with his latest musical project. Name not revealed to protect the creative process and to prevent the vaporware syndrome. Best to just let it happen, you will find out about it when it is finished.
As for this election, I already voted. We voted together.
Yesterday, I found myself commenting on a thread of a distant cousin by marriage, after said cousin revealed she is Trump supporter. I was surprised, but not too surprised. It provided clarity on one thing and confusion on another. Her mom also commented. These are otherwise talented and pleasant people. Anyway, here is my comment:
If you are interested, here are my thoughts on the debate:
According to the online Oxford Dictionary the word politician has two definitions. I was only able to copy and paste one. However, I was able to screenshot both:
- a person who acts in a manipulative and devious way, typically to gain advancement within an organization.

When we see people doing wrong, we need to speak up.
Too often, wrongdoing is disguised as being "for your own good."
Why, oh why, do we make things so difficult?
I find myself puzzled by this law that Governor Newsom just signed into law: SB 145.
If the intent of the law is to address cases where two people are close in age, then why not make that clear, and address the 10 year age gap?
How is a 14 year old of any gender or sexual orientation supposed to give consent to someone that is 10 years their senior? And we, as a society, absolve them of accountability?
We need to fix this "oversight."
Suffice it to say, civic engagement is necessary for laws that reflect the will of the people.
Contact your elected representatives, and let them know how you feel about this. I certainly will.
Enough of this absurdity.

Combination of the two, plus me and you.
Come on, folks, we can do this!
I hope you are feeling what I am feeling:
Energetic, not apathetic.
Grateful for Kamala Harris' supportive parents and family. This is a moment in time to be celebrated, but now is when we get to work.
Thank you to everyone who donated to my campaign. I am planning to check the rules before I do anything with the funds. Current plan is to donate to the Biden/Harris effort and/or down ticket Democrats.

Hope this note finds you well. Thank you to everyone choosing to reduce the viral load in the air by covering your nose and mouth.
Take a break from the stress and let's work together to bring more kindness and beauty into this world, through music. Now, more than ever, we need music.
Thanks for listening.

Keep shining your light, wherever you may be.
Eventually, the truth we'll show for all to see.

Sometimes it comes after a hard day's work, sometimes it comes after a life well lived. A life, well lived is usually not thought about while doing the living, it is considered after the living is done.
When a man such as John Lewis takes his final rest, perhaps that means it is tine for the rest of us to get to work.
We all have to start somewhere.
Let's start where we are, and go from here.
