* Here's the thing. Don't despair. Find your center in other people, in good deeds, in making a difference. Donate or volunteer. Make a difference, effect change, where you can with what you have. Puerto Rico needs donations, politics needs activism, and I believe the universe needs positivity. Be tender to one another but be firm in your convictions.

* Not a good time to be reading horror, admittedly. Perhaps....after we finish Stephen King's "IT" we should try for a collective read of something inspiring? Anyway, we ARE discussing horror and narrative story-telling, childhood, and clowns over at pathos_horror. Maybe we can focus on the "pathos" aspect of horror this terrible week? We would love to see more voices. Join us! I'm nearly finished with this brick of a book and thoughts, I haz 'em.

* Kids got their apartment! Big life changes for both of them.

* Escaping to OCEAN next week and I cannot wait.

* Mid-October or so let's begin shop talking and rally around a good launch into NaNoWriMo!

* One of my sisters' first album purchases was when Damn the Torpedoes was released. Petty's voice will always remind me of younger days. RIP Tom. I love this song -

Yeah, something inspiring to read sounds good.

Yay for kids getting their apartment!

I'm looking forward to Nano.

Hooray for new apartment! I remember the excitement/fear the first time I moved out of the 'rents house.

Yes, something uplifting after all this tragedy.

I can't wait till Nano. By then I should be used to the new job and able to think creatively again.

Pretty song. (sigh)

Ocean-therapy! Yes!

I've signed up for NANO, but you probably know that from my post. ;-) Will you be signing up, too?

Yesterday there was a snow storm, today it's almost tropical out there. Gotta love our weather. And it's not just Autumn. It's like this all the time.

I'm "news-ed out." Can't take it anymore.

Here's what I wish...

I wish that the one who wrought such devastation is erased. His name removed from all records as if he never existed. His name never uttered again. Not a thought for him, or a remembrance. I don't want to know his name, I don't want to hear his name, or see it written. I don't want to know his reasons--THEY WEREN'T GOOD ENOUGH!!! Why do I feel this way? Because I can't help thinking that at least in part the monsters who do these things do them for the notoriety. I don't want to feed that beast.

I want to know the names of the victims, dead and injured. I want to know about their lives, their dreams. I want them to be remembered and honored and thought about with love and respect. I want them to live on through our collective prayers and in the way we love one another.

I will miss Tom.

I'm feeling really emotionally bruised and battered right now . . . I don't know what it's going to take to get any kind of positive political traction until the midterm elections at the earliest.

I'm being active and involved and putting the word out, but things really do feel futile right now. I cannot understand the level of pettiness and hatred that has taken over our political sphere. How can people be so cruel and callous?

I hope your getaway to the ocean is amazing <3

*much much love*

Awesome news about the kids and the apartment.

Are you going to the Oregon coast, or the California coast? Either one would be great.

I wish I could find time to get away and see family up north (which I'd firmly intended to do before G's injury). It all feels like such a mess, the whole concept of trying to schedule stuff. Plus, work-- I'm being told to produce more and do it faster, which means this isn't a great time for a vacation. *sigh*

California coast this week. Oregon over Christmas. I sure wish you could get some space/time/energy to visit your family. I'm sorry things are so upside down for you right now, K.
