Years have passed since I last wrote on the blog and yet here I am. Not sure what I wanted to do with this space, but part of me holds onto the handle and pays for the domain and then lets the time just go by. When I told my husband I had several domains, his eyes opened wide and he asked me why I would pay for them. I shrugged my shoulders and said I just could not find a way to let them go. I know my own name would probably never get purchased by someone else, but some of the others might, and then I would kick myself for not having done something...anything with them myself.
The date is Sunday, July 5, 2020, and we as a nation have been struggling with a pandemic, Covid-19. The only thing I can say is that we don't really know anything about this damn virus and every day is a new one regarding what we should be doing or not doing. And of course, it has all turned political. Wear a mask and you're a Libatard, don't wear one and you're selfish. Commonsense has all but gone out the window. Can't say or so anything without someone turning rude to the point of wanting to fight one another. Sad times, really.
At this time we are also going through a reckoning with regards to race. Black Lives Matter. For some reason, there are people that can not open their eyes to the horrendous acts our nation has continued to put on Black Americans. As a child learning about slavery, it broke my heart to read about the small number of details we were taught. As an adult, I am sickened by the fact that in 400 years we have barely done better. All because of the color of a person's skin. It seems each day someone else has lost their mind. I say it is because they know in their heart of hearts, Black Americans have been treated badly and if the status quo were to change, they could not
handle the treatment they might receive. Power is a strange and intoxicating thing and no one wants to lose it ones they have had a taste. I will state it again, Black Lives Matter.
I end on that note and now that I have challenged myself to get back into writing, maybe I will update more. But whose reading blogs these days anyway?
