More normal is good. Today was a busy day of taking action. I did read the news, but in limited amounts. My anxiety is super high right now. I was feeling fine, then it came over me. Perhaps it is because our white supremacist president, (not my president), thought Frederick Douglass was still alive? A definite possibility. Or perhaps because he was ugly and rude to the PM of Australia, Malcolm Turnbull, and then had the balls to hang up on him. Could be. Everyone is feeling anxious and I can feel that energy.
Today was a good, productive, action filled day. I called my local chapter of the Democratic Party, Basic Rights Oregon, a new friend, I spoke with my oldest best friend in Maryland, I am planning on volunteering for NOW, my great friend, Farmer Dan, checked on me, I spoke to my mom and to my step-mom, my sister in Nashville, my bestie in La Grande. I connected with lots of loved ones. Still playing phone tag with Lulu, we will connect, my girl! I can barely keep my eyes open now. I am going to brush my teeth.
Aaron will massage my feet and that will relax me. Sending love out to all of you - hope you feel it!
