The Uvalde Massacre has broken my heart. It’s been 20 years since the Columbine Massacre and nothing has changed. Not in protecting our children, not in sensible gun control, not in police practices in these unthinkable scenarios, not in politicians’ responses. I thought that somehow Sandy Hook would have been a catalyst. Then I thought that Parkland would have been a catalyst. What’s the saying? Fool me once, shame on you. Fool me twice, shame on me? I won’t waste my spirit thinking that Uvalde will be a catalyst. Our society is so broken, so irrational, so angry, and so polarized that we are sunk in an impenetrable fog and cannot see our way out. At least I can’t. I still have faith. I’m just not sure what I have faith in right now.

All quiet on the western front.
Contemplative.
Inception.
The roof of the Atrium.
Carpeting, Texas-style.
Tiny bubbles.
Keeping watch.
The first blue sky I’ve seen in six days.

Outstanding in his field.
I am now more educated. Yay, women!

He’s wearing a bow tie.
At my shoulder.
Our favorite pastime. Though we accidentally drove through a gravel pit to get there.
My first roadrunner.

Daily gratitudes:

  • Do-overs
  • That the wind has calmed a smidge
