Beginning to look a lot like….

Hello everyone,
hope you are all,
keeping well.
It's coming on Christmas,
and,
I am actually all done,
with my preparations, which is,
stupendous.


I have been keeping,
my promise to myself,
of not overthinking,
obsessing over things,
so far, I am managing,
mostly
:-)

I have been feeling a,
need for spiritual,
sustenance,
a need to make,
a difference,
to be involved.
What that means,
I am not quite sure,
but I have been drawn,
to churches,
their peace and quiet,
their beauty,
the words, the music,
can't really explain it.

I have also felt a call,
to politics,
roll up my sleeves,
and get down to,
the grass roots.
These are interesting times,
scary times, we live in.
I hear a call to serve,
not arms,
and,
in spite of the current illness,
that seems to be afflicting,
politics,
what I do 'hear' is that people,
want change.
To me Trump is no real change,
he is stagnant savage capitalism,
wrapped up in,
a made in China cloak of,
Make America Great Again.
Hypocritical, rich man crap.
I think a lot of the people who,
voted for him and agree with his,
'principles' are,
good earnest people,
searching for change,
but, 
they 
need to make change,
not abdicate,
their rights.

I believe both the
left and right,
want a better world,
a safe, clean, hopeful,
world,
planet.
I don't think screaming,
curses at each other will,
accomplish that,
or anything in fact.
There are facts,
and,
opinions,
not the same thing.
Demonizing will lead no where.
I believe in better angels.

One resolution for the new year,
flee haters,
debate with people of,
good faith.
No more mansplanners,
No more wasted energy,
thoughtful intelligent,
pragmatic and optimistic,
plans for change,
because change,
my friends,
is of the essence.

Working at a local level,
to make my,
neighborhood,
city, 
world.
Better,
belief and meaning,
this is what I,
want,
need.

World peace and better understanding,
lofty and attainable,
all at once.

Enjoy the lead up,
to the holiday frenzy

be well,
you all.
Later girls,
BB
