--->by the catastrophizing emails on my laptop! (And the worst thing is, what they're worrying about is worth the worry.)
I finally got out in time to hit the post office before it closed, then the market; but not in time to fit in a long walk.
The good news is that since two nights from now I begin to teach a series of classes, I am obligated to not spend all of my time signing petitions and writing or calling our congressmen.
One of them can be depended upon to do the right and moral thing; one will just as dependably and fairly consistently not.
I know that my beloved would have had an arsenal of action directives, prayer intentions and the perspective of wisdom that comes with length of days and having seen the world change, utterly, more than once. We are now once again at a tipping point.
It has been exhausting, and I must find ways not to spend my days so.
I am falling asleep at the keyboard.
