When the going gets weird, the weird turn pro


I think what he was getting at is that anxiety and being backed into a corner stimulates survival instincts, and anger coupled with creativity that moves people who otherwise not do much to take action.

Stress triggers ingenuity.

But others will certainly have different interpretations.

I know that I got pushed by this administration into dropping almost every normal aspect of my life to just immerse myself in this chaos, rather than get paralyzed by it. But at times, I have felt paralyzed too. But luckily, those moments passed.

During our last fundraiser, I posted that quote twice on "stickies". It really is a quote that speaks to me for some reason. I miss Hunter S. Thompson and wonder what he would think about the last four years.

Buy the ticket, take the ride.
