Not Alone

 I know I'm not alone in my feelings about the result of our election, and I know I'm not alone in the frustration of thinking that no matter how bad he got, it was never bad enough to be taken down and that others before him had their careers end over slights that were far, far less than his.  I KNOW it but today I SAW it when I went to Lansing to join my sister-in-law at the women's rally at the capitol.
 We estimated 10s of thousands of people and not all of them were women, some carrying signs, some not, but everyone was there to be seen and counted.
This was the very first sign I saw and for me, it said it all.  Meryl Streep's platform at the Golden Globes awards was exactly and precisely what I had been saying for many months.  No one listens to me.  Everyone listens to her and I am so glad she said it.
 This was another thing I have been saying for months and months.  Poor PH.  How many times have I ranted, "we don't allow KINDERGARTENERS to act like this. Why is HE getting away with it!!!"
It was a good way to get a little of the angst out of my system and to be with like minded people who just want to be counted.

That's the end of politics.  No more.


  1. Good to see you out and about. The rally must have raised your hopes just a little, it is no small thing to mobilise many people and be a community of like minded spirits.
