If You Can’t Say Something Nice…

I’ve been blogging now since about 2017. No idea how many people follow me or read what I write. I assume that anyone who reads more than one of my blogs is politically moderate to liberal, not a fan of the former president or his followers, and is likely to be fully vaccinated. My blogs have been varied, but few are simply positive homilies intended to make people smile or feel optimistic.

I find myself unable at this time to write anything that doesn’t sound angry, frustrated, or fearful. I don’t want to add my negative feelings to the miasma that exists. I am struggling not to give up, give in, give out…but I am losing the battle for now.

Thus, I am signing off for the near future—or longer if required. I am getting my third vaccine—booster—this week.  I am going to continue outreaching to my community in the hope that more people will follow suit and get their shots. But I need time for reflection, for meditation, maybe even for prayer.

I’m off to the North Georgia Mountains. If I’m lucky, I’ll return optimistic and full of words to share.

I’m a conversationalist, an observer, a passionate participant in life. And now, in my later years, I’m a recorder of the lessons of my life through essays, stories, and novels. I live in the fourth moment of life, just outside the normal distribution of most people and it is from this place that I write.
