So I’ve been out of the loop for a while, here.
Did I miss much?
Any hard evidence of collusion with foreign powers? Declining American prestige, leadership, security, or respect in the world? Transparently hallucinatory diversionary tactics from people in high office here in the Good Old US of A? Gratuitous cruelty for everyone not white, wealthy, or Dominionist blasphemer in order to provide tax breaks for the 1%?
It’s nice to take a break for a while. We’ve had friends from out of the country visiting for the last couple of weeks and our attention has been focused on them rather than on the sorry state of the wider world and the even sorrier people who think that’s okay, and it has just been lovely. We had a grand time with them, and we are looking forward to seeing them again soon because it’s good to spend time with friends.
Meanwhile our own lives have reached something of a blurry phase where we no longer can keep track of just who needs to be where for how long and it’s a good thing that we take pictures because otherwise it would just all fall out of the back of our heads and be forgotten like a Russian meeting. There’s theater, band, jobs, 4H, and any number of other things that have demanded all of our time and then some.
At some point you begin to wonder if you’ve reached the limit where all the balls will no longer stay in the air and what will happen when they come crashing down, but for the moment everything remains airborne and we keep juggling. We’ll be here all summer. Try the veal.
So in the very near future there will be more bloggage, because that’s just what I do.
In the meantime, we press on.
