I haven’t written in a while because – it would have been, and undoubtedly will be, a rant. A rant without joy. Filled with frustration. Even fear, perhaps. But here I am, and we will see what comes out of it.
Hearings – justified? I think they are, from my viewpoint, which might differ from your viewpoint. Will they result in anything positive? Probably not. I seem to be viewing mankind with a sense of fatality these days. My truth is that the electoral college has put into office a man that should not have any control over the lives of humans, and now he has control over a whole country full of them. And even some in other countries. When I hear someone say “he was elected by the people”, I cringe. I turn shades of red and purple. I want to shout back that “NO, he wasn’t. He wasn’t”. Because we’re too smart for that, right? I mean he showed his colors during the election, didn’t he? Blame this on the Electoral College. Ah well, maybe we aren’t as smart as I thought we were. You were warned. This rant over.
On the other side of my world, I have decided I want to learn how to weave, so I am expending time and funds on weaving related things. It’s really a great way to ignore household chores an duties too. Although – one benefit – I have started reorganizing, sorting, cleaning out, my craft room. So far I have one little part that is organized, and one pretty big pile of trash. Amazing, the things I save that might have a use in some future life. Then forget I have. This decision followed a visit to the shop of a weaver during an art tour while I was in New Mexico – I have knitted for a long time, but oh how I love the look of woven products. So far, I keep coming up with new ways to make mistakes, but then I guess it’s all a learning process, isn’t it? I’m loving it. My current project – just my second, actually – is this:
We are entering our time of grey skies here, although a great deal of it now is air pollution. We have some kind of inversion layer or something happening – missing our usual winds which normally blows out the yech. It’s like a fog out there, but not a clean, damp fog. Rather, a smelly, ugly haze.
Thanksgiving is nearly here already. My family will be at my house, and I am soooo excited! I think I have it all under control – or at least my plans are to have it all under control. Do as much as I can ahead of time, save the cleaning for the last minute because who wants to do too much of that nonsense anyway? Pretty sure I’m going to have to plug in the energy hog refrigerator in the garage for a few days. It’s going to be needed, starting when it’s time to thaw the bird that’s in the freezer.
Wishing those of you in the USA a very happy Thanksgiving – and to all of you, happiness, love, peace, joy. Pretend reality is all good stuff.
