Let me know how you think after reading it.
I think you know how I think… (Sigh….) The pendulum swings, not just back and forth but sometimes turning on its axis into surreal territory, a stark land we’ve only visited in science fiction. And it’s terrifying. So much more one could say on the subject… Maybe in email when I’m able… (Ups and downs physically as usual. Hope you are doing well, Ben.)
Sorry to hear your body is still giving you grief. 😦
Things could be worse – it’s just more frustrating than anything else. I know you can relate, unfortunately. Here’s to good health, creativity, and poetry – (waving my magic wand over all of us. 😉 )
I shall join in. 🙂
Thanks so much for sharing my piece! I feel very strongly about the need to reach across social divides in order to work together for shared political aspirations
