It’s frighteningly windy out there today. Seriously, a cold snap here and the wind makes it even colder. Even the garbage cans (emptied at 5:30am by the hardworking town workers) were actually being carried by the winds down the street!
Honestly it feels creepy to me. Like the winds of change have arrived full force. I can hear the winds howling in the empty fireplace as I write. I wonder what the winds are taking away and what will be left when it’s over.
“Toto, I’ve a feeling we’re not in Kansas anymore,” quote from Dorothy in The Wizard of Oz. It feels apropos, doesn’t it?
I have been thinking that lately with this election and all the craziness that’s been happening. I am not getting political here because I don’t like it. It is simply an observation. And a valid concern as to what will go on afterward and how it will all pan out. Because tempers are running high these days and it’s concerning that people are misbehaving (I tried to find a better word, but I can’t think of one. Can you?)
The “Ugly American” has been our reputation in other countries and we are not holding back as to the increase in ugliness with such a disjointed country where we are at odds amongst ourselves. Ugliness meaning bad behavior and not necessarily ugly.
I’m staying out of the fray and staying home until the dust settles. It’s far too windy out there for me. Stay safe everyone!
