Even though these last few weeks have been gray, I am grateful I saw this gorgeous blue sky this morning.
I’ve lost count of how many days we’ve been in our Covid19 Shelter-In-Place. That’s what I call our current situation because it reminds me of our “Shelter-In-Place” drills at school. I know I can leave home, but I don’t want to leave. In the United States, our Covid19 prevention is mixed with the wannabe authoritarian politics of TrumpTwat.
Most of our country has not been under lockdown. I’m fortunate that I live in a state with a sane Democratic governor. (Had this happened with Chris Crispy, there would be even more chaos.) He’s taking the information from scientists and doctors seriously. However, there are still a few Covidiots in our state who refuse to believe the virus exists. Some of them live next door to me.

Even with the sun shining, I’m still surrounded by a funk and a fog this week. I guess Daylight Savings has hit me really hard. I haven’t been able to shake this mood. Lately I’ve been tired, annoyed, fed up, and… tired. I know it’s stress at work (Do I have to be asked to do everything?) and stress of doing everything on my own (Even taking out the trash has pissed me off!). But, this Black Woman has reached the point where I have no more nice words to give! And I don’t think Sunday mass or my therapist will help with adding those words back into my vocabulary. I’m just fed up with everything and everybody!Continue reading “Daylight Savings Fog (Rant)”
Luke Perry, Dead at 52 from massive stroke…Keith Flint (Prodigy), Dead at 49 from completed suicide…Gone too soon…T.Lanette
I couldn’t believe it when I heard this news last Sunday. Two young men who were part of my adult culture, gone. Their death was too soon and at a young age. Perry was only two years older than me. Flint was a year younger.
Too many of us are dying from stress and troubles too young. We have every modern convenience to make our lives easier. There are medical advances to help us live longer. Yet, lately, I’m reading about young people dying from late-in-life diseases and the effects of mental illness.
…It’s just too soon!T.Lanette
