|Small section of a larger piece I'm working on|
In some ways nothing is any different. Yet everything is very different. It's another world entirely from the one we all woke up to on Tuesday morning.
Personally I don't feel at too great a risk of having my life changed hugely by what's to come. Because I'm already so far down on the socioeconomic scale and yet have managed to arrange my life such that I still have a bit of wiggle room for some degree of things beyond my control.
But I'm really terrified for all the people who are going to suffer great losses in any number of ways, especially our brothers and sisters who are LGBTQ, Muslim, Black, Native American, Hispanic, differently-abled, other immigrants, and of course younger woman, all of whom collectively represent a huge percentage of people in this country. And I'm sad and sick inside for what has become/what is becoming of America. This is no longer the country I was born and raised in. I don't know this place anymore.
I feel despondent, and speechless. And numb.
I'm gonna take a hiatus here for a bit. Do my retreat thing. Go within, read a lot, be quiet as much as I can.
Blessings and love to all of you.
