What a strange few days.... a few nights ago, I looked up at this tiny slice of #moon and thought about the wolf Fenris devouring all but the last bites, and wondered if ragnarok wasn’t an apocalypse but a rebirth, or, better yet, the end of the old ways and the gateway to an age of reason, ruled by enlightened thinkers, dreamers, scientists, philosophers.
2) then it snowed (seemingly in #slowmotion), with thick heavy flakes, like the sky gods needed to give us something, a reminder. Of what? I dunno.
3) maybe that #chinesetakeout never sleeps?
4) and now it’s spring time: 66f in mid February. The world is upside down.
5) oh, hey mom, I was dusting off this #vintagephoto and took this #pictureofapicture of you, because I’m thinking about you and we love you.
I keep throwing it back in my mind to Halloween, and thinking how lucky I was to bring my daughter home. How eight people died that day, and even our shithead president commented, calling it terror, because that man had brown skin when he crashed into the walls outside her school. 17 died last week at the hands of a young man with a red hat and pale skin, who bought 7 guns legally, and then went to McDonald’s after blending right back into the general population and walking past police. That wasn’t a terror attack @realdonaldtrump? He hasn’t said so, for he has 30,000,000 reasons to say nothing.
What have we done?
I just miss my friends, my kid, my family and I want to hold them all close and tell them I love them, that we’ll be ok. I want to walk under the hanging moon slivers and believe when the wolf takes a last bite and the old ways are gone, a better tomorrow will Dawn. Then, from our work, our kids won’t be slaughtered, our politicians will be humble, our corporations will not be immune from consequence. We’ll emerge as one World, one nation, one community, one responsible family, respectful of each other and of life. It all seems jumbled, but I’m hoping that from strange days, we will emerge united. It sometimes seems as likely as a 66f day in February...
