Coping (barely)

Texas, climate change, Delta variant, California recall…  lots of panic to manage these days.

    Wendy, I don’t know what I’d do if it weren’t for my daily ritual of writing morning pages (1665 days in a row!) Any compassion I may have had for the (willingly) unvaccinated (and mask refusers) is pretty much nil and frankly, if they get sick, well, no sympathy as they’ve put themselves into this situation.A friend of mine is vaccinated, but undergoing regular chemotherpy, so she effectively has no immune system. I want to help protect these people, not those who believe mask mandates infringe on their “freedom”.

    Some days I think that maybe humanity should just die out (as it seems to want to do). But then I smile as I watch the hummingbirds load up for their long trip to Mexico.
