80. Ladies and gentlemen of the thread, I am wiped

I'm going to leave this thread to your amusement. The summer lethargy set in...all this good weather is baffling, and it's supposed to continue. It doesn't even go down at night anymore....I didn't need a sweater until 11 PM last night. Lows in the 50's, highs in the 70's and 80's for the foreseeable future....

The daffs, forsythia, and primroses have popped open last night. I saw them as I threw papers.

Rumor has it that the paper has a year or less to live. I have mixed feelings about that....mostly inconvenience. There's no cause for grief, that's for sure.

I have decided that I've been stuck in the grief process over a number of things (not just deaths)...so I'm going to work on being happy that some things and people have ended....so that I can fill in the vacancies with new, living people and ventures.

Vitality is a learned response in our society, not a natural one. There are so many people trying to frustrate and deprive other people to death. The deprivation can be food, shelter, medical care, education, or love, respect, purpose, and accomplishment. That's in essence what the women's movement was all about: seeing that we get the vital nutrients for living.

We women are tasked with trying to keep our children vital...we don't always think about doing the same for ourselves. Take some time for that, ladies. Spring will help get us going. It's been a hard 10 years or so.
