When the president is threatening nuclear war with North Korea daily, proposing possible war in Venezuela, dismantling the EPA and denying the existence of climate change, ignoring multiple attacks on American mosques, openly bragging about sexually assaulting women, imprisoning minorities at record levels, retweeting Nazis, and destroying our democracy....you need coping mechanisms.
I'm sorry if you're tired of reading about this. But when you have hundreds of young white men storming a black church with torches and CNN running segments on how the people of Hawaii will have less than 15 minutes to prepare for nuclear attack, it's hard to write about what tv I'm enjoying.
However, life must (kind of) go on. I hope to pop into this blog to share ways I'm coping -- things I'm loving that are provide much needed light in these dark times.
Last night I found a new (to me) starling murmuration video. I never get tired of watching these.
Thanks for reading and please, everyone -- try to go out and be fiercely kind to those around you. Our worst nightmare can only happen if we let it.
