Changes

I have multiple lives. My work (i.e. regular job), my home/personal life, my writing life. It's a challenge at times to balance all of them and sometimes I feel like one or more of them get out of whack. When that happens, I have to make changes.

Not much, really, except that I think it will open the doors for me to share even more of my stories and thoughts with you. I can't discuss it further right now until the paperwork is signed so stay tuned!

Before I walk out my door in the morning, there is someone telling me something I need to be mad about.

And heaven forbid, you don't get mad about it. Or as angry as they think you should be. Then they turn on you and you get called--well, choose any of the common terms: racist, bigot, unpatriotic, Trump lover, never Trumper, liberal, conservative--oh, the list is endless.

First of all, how do you find the mental and emotional energy to be outraged and ticked off 24/7? Isn't that exhausting? I couldn't do it. And let me see if I get this straight: you're walking around angry and upset over something that by all odds, doesn't really affect you anyway? Are you like the people who weren't even Native American mad at the Redskins name? You do know the real honest to goodness…
