Scream with your hands up in the sky
Like you want to testify
For the life that's been deleted
Sing like a rebel's lullaby
Under the stars and stripes
For the lost souls that were cheated

~~ “Revolution Radio” by Green Day

I’m still not in a great place.

Oh, I’m doing all right. I’m living my life, having fun, all that stuff. I haven’t been gunned down in the street, had my uterus ripped out, or been told “Hush your mouth, little lady.”

A stranger hasn’t grabbed my pussy, so there’s that.

I am still not feeling real happy about things right now.

At the moment, there is not a whole lot I can do about it. We’ll see what happens in the coming days, but for now? I guess I have to see what plays out.

In the meantime, I’ve been focusing on meeting my reading challenge. I have met the goal of fifty books per year in my Facebook reading group, but my personal goal is 52, and I am two books away from that. I think I’m going to make it! I’m going the distance! I’ve read some great books this year, but I’ve read a few stinkers, too. Quirky does not always equate to good.

Reading is always a refuge for me. I’m not retreating from the world, but diving into a good book and losing myself for a while is always a good thing.

We’ve also been watching “Aquarius,” the show starring David Duchovny (I lurv him) and about the Manson family. It’s fascinating, disturbing, and a great diversion.

As always, music is the best retreat. I’m listening to a lot of different things, but Green Day is the band that is perfectly matching my mood right now and their new album “Revolution Radio” is getting lots of airplay at Nutwood.

We’ll see what happens going forward and we’ll see what response is needed.

For the moment, I can immerse myself in books, movies, TV, and music.

To be continued.


  1. The only thing I listened to this morning was the breaking news on Ohio State University.
    I share your not in a great place.

    I don't ever push my blog entries but this is a thank you for the people I regularly read, so...

  2. ...I feel similarly out of sorts... I can say that I never have felt the dread of the future as I do now... the possibility that the entire country can be like a Sam Brownback's Kansas (if not worse) makes my soul shiver...

  3. New reader here... I am equally out of sorts and feeling much as you've described above. I keep thinking these past few weeks have been just a really long nightmare that I'll soon wake up from... Thanks for a bit of humor to brighten the dark mood... and music is a great healer too.

    1. Thank you for the comment and I'm glad you enjoyed my entry! I figure that we all need to stick together and treat each other as well as possible. We'll get through it...I hope.


I'm funny how, I mean funny like I'm a clown, I amuse you?
