I wakened to the hope that the electors would be sane enough to prevent this person from becoming our president.
Note to self: do not ease up on praying like hell for our country, our world.
The day itself was full: a rehearsal for "Klezmania", happening Christmas Eve at the newly built JCC: klezmer music and Chinese food.
Then a food drop and visit with a friend recovering from knee surgery---such a treat to visit when neither has to run elsewhere.
Home to feed the cats, pick up messages, read mail...I'm forgetting something...
YES! quick run to pick up meds at the pharmacy, then catch the last of Yud Tes Kislev, a Chabad celebration, by the local Chabad family.
Then home to the reality of signing petitions, writing to senators and representatives; try to save our world from utter ruin.
The cats nap and purr on either side of me. They are sure that no matter what, they will be fed and cared for; they will be warm and safe and content. Although I am fairly sure that this might mostly hold true for me too, what about everybody else? what about elders on Social Security? what about our heating atmosphere? what about dwindling species?
There are so many cracks that surely we will soon be flooded with light...
