Happy New Year to all! And good riddance to that bad year, let’s take this new one and make it special. Make it redemptive.

Make it count.

I’ve never been one for New Year’s resolutions, they put too much pressure on you and they’re so rarely kept, they’re a recipe for failure. Or feeling like a failure. I took to making ones I know I can keep, like quitting smoking (I’m not a smoker). And I still don’t smoke!

The success is built right in.

But with things the way that they are, with democracy and fairness and all the things we think of as defining “American” hanging by the most slender of threads, silly resolutions that aren’t won’t do. So this year I resolve to do what I can to make sure we restore order, restore sanity and restore sovereignty to this country that we love. Well, you could be in an entirely different country, so maybe you don’t love it so much as like it as a friend, and that’s OK.

Please just keep the pointing and laughing to a minimum.

The beginning of January may only be a date on the calendar, one that’s so cold the condensation from buildings is falling to the ground like lead, but we have the power to make it mean something.

If we choose.

Health, safety, and success to all this year!

    D’you know, I realise now that I stopped pointing & laughing a while back. Back when we realised that it was serious this Trumpeting affliction you have. Best of luck with it. You’ve worked hard to raise awareness and I admire you for that. You truly won’t be able to look back and say “maybe if I’d tried …” Keep at it m’dear, we’re all hoping you & yours will get there. For you, and for us all.

    • Thanks so much, it’s pretty horrifying. The worst part is discovering that the Republicans are just as soulless as they appear, because they’ve capitalized on it at the expense of the poor and middle class. They could have ended it immediately, yet here we are.

      It’s untenable and it will end; we’re putting a lot of faith in Mueller.

      Thanks for the support though, it’s so reassuring to know that people outside the country can see it and know we don’t want it.
