Just read this from Mark Morford and I think I shall adopt it as my new creed:
"Eat well, not too much. Exercise every day. Meditate. Have lots of sex. Get outside. Love like you mean it. Quit whining. Read a book. Never vote Republican."
Today I really appreciated Anne Lamott's Facebook post -- she is countering the craziness in congressional politics by doing good deeds. That's a healthy and helpful response to those whack job tea partiers who are holding the whole damned country hostage. Gawd but they infuriate me.
I mean, I'm really upset by this stuff. I can't even bear watching the news and I can't bear the lack of good reporting on the subject. The media are a bunch of sheep, I tell you. So, to feed my soul today I met my good friend S. for coffee and he graciously listened to my venting and witnessed my hand wringing. And then I gave him the floor and got to hear all about his wedding plans to his sweet man-honey, R. Gay weddings, galore~!
I hope you are finding ways to feed your soul, boost your spirits and generally be at peace in these dispiriting times. We'll get through this, but in the meantime, it's a bitch.
