I am trying to shore up my courage to NOT open the computer in the morning.
When I do, I get snagged by everyone else's alarm and panic about the havoc being wreaked by our infantile president, and I spend the first productive hours of my day writing letters to congresspeople, signing petitions, etc.; and the following hours worried.
This has got to stop.
I have a book to write--more than one, actually---and I don't want to add to the T's list of sins the sabotage of my creative work. So I need permission, support and encouragement to postpone my civic duty until the afternoon, so that I may do my personal and unique work, the stuff that no-one else can do, in the morning, and not find myself by afternoon too depleted and discouraged to write.
Wishing us all a good Independence Day Week. Wishing this country the very miracles it needs.
Wishing us the personal ones as well.
