We've had some very warm weather for November and strong winds that have stripped the trees. Rain today, which would be appreciated if only to wash off the dust. The pond is low. We are thinking about dredging and enlarging it, though I don't see myself ever fishing. My mother was a fisherwoman. She loved it. Yet, it would look more like a lake. I might float on it in a boat.
The burning bush is awesomely ruddy this year, though no voices have yet issued forth from it.
Exciting news for me. I bought my first ever legal medical cannabis yesterday, right there near main street in my old home town. Still blows my mind that it has happened. Especially in Missouri. But, high (you see what I did there?) time that legalization everywhere in this country is possible soon.
The election is finally fucking over. That whole week sucked and then I spent Saturday alternating weeping and celebrating with my kids. I'm pretty sure I have never ever been so personally invested in the outcome of an election, presidential or otherwise. Always been apolitical and a bit of an anarchist at heart. But, for whatever reason, this time I cared and I did enjoy the feeling of relief as the numbers rolled in.
In 1969 did I have any foreshadowing that I would live long enough to see the shit come down that has done so just in this year? Oh no, I surely did not.
But interesting times and all that - right. So rolling along and "keeping on trucking" are my current mantras. I bet there are great and positive circumstances still to unroll.
Currently reading a book on NDE's and one of Alexander McCall Smith's, Ladies No 1 Detective Agency. TV has been "The Queen's Gambit" on Netflix (love the clothes).
No reading today, need to cook. Making curry and Chicken Schwarma.
There is a shift. I can feel it and it feels great!
Rock on... peace out
