Note to Myself # 30

It's easy to get overwhelmed and discouraged
from all the coverage of 45
and what he's doing that makes us shudder.

I know the burden's on us to be
the change we want to see in the world,
but if we can't find pleasure
and just plain FuN
in the process, we need to rethink our approach.

making music
creating art
giggling with friends
concocting a new and scrumptious dish
knitting a sweater (or a pink hat)
dancing with abandon

These are all ways to increase
your life force

to build a reserve to energy
for serious work

and to put a huge dollop of JoY
into the Universe.

That's a good antidote
to the fear-mongering being pushed
to promote false and divisive ideologies.
