Happy(er) 2018!


Just a quick New Year’s Eve post.

For me personally, 2017 was a better than average year. But politically, it really, really sucked.

My take away from this is that I realized how much I care about my country and saving democracy. I learned more than I ever did in all my years of schooling about our political system and history.   2017 was definitely an education.

Here’s hoping that 2018 is a starting point for something new and much better, and the beginning of the end of this dark time in our history.

Happy New Year!

    Happy New Year, Otter. There’s a book I’m planning to read, “Hope in the Dark” by Rebecca Solnit. Here’s one quote:

    “Hope just means another world might be possible, not promise, not guaranteed. Hope calls for action; action is impossible without hope.”
    ― Rebecca Solnit, Hope in the Dark

  2. Oh I so agree with you about needing a better year for the United States. I fear our democracy is being dismantled while we are distracted with tweets and divisiveness.
    All my best to you and here’s to a much better 2018…Thank you.

    January the first, two-zero-one-eight.

    The year that Dump crashed; and in crashing, he tried to burn the outhouse – but the dumper dumped him, and said “good riddance to bad trouble.”

    Pause. “Now where was I…”

    Long pause. It’s been a long time – a privy needs time to recall former days when it’s been used disgracefully for a season or three..

    “Oh, that’s right. I was a *dumper*, and people sat in me like they should, and looked after me, and moved me when it was time, and the grass was green everywhere nearby.”

    Looks around and sees a wasteland. “Now about this valley of dry bones… It might take time, and labor, and prayer – but I think it ***can*** live again.”

    Long pause.

    “Let us try.”
