So You Know

If you follow me on Facebook, you know my political leaning.  I usually don't get into too much here, because, I suppose, Facebook allows me to vent.  There are some things I have to say here, though, mostly to explain why my posts have been so irregular lately.

If you supported/voted for Donald Trump, I am glad you found someone who gave voice to your concerns.  I hope his administration does things that make your life, and the lives of those you care about, better.  Truly.  

Personally, I am scared almost to paralysis about what might be happening in/to this country.  I have spent most of the last week, week and a half, alternately trying not to think about what is coming, and writing to, calling, and engaging with anyone I think might be able to make a difference.  So, I haven't blogged.  I've knit, I've read, I've watched movies, I've worn my activist hat.  You haven't missed anything.  Promise.

I'm thrilled that so many people I know are taking action but in many cases the constant posting about the Tangerine Nightmare's latest show of idiocy/immaturity is wearing on me. Seeing the articles only once a day instead of all the time has helped my anxiety level immensely.
