my fellow Americans, it’s time to eat our feelings

It’s been a rough few weeks.  Hell, as far as I’m concerned pretty much all of 2016 has been a roller coaster ride, and there’s a lot of uproar about the transition period.

But there’s plenty of places on the internet where you can talk politics.  Janel’s post talks about how Americans can come together again next week to join in our great annual tradition of consuming ridiculous amounts of food.

Preach.

“Fellow Americans, I know it feels like this country is falling apart, and that we’re basically all swirling around and around the toilet bowl, waiting for that final glug to put us out of our misery. This sentiment becomes particularly more pronounced when people start thinking about Thanksgiving.  Many of us are worried about the prospect of having their first post-election family gathering.  Which I completely understand – judging by my social media feed, some of you are related to some real assholes.”

  1. Thanks for the reflections on the past few weeks.
    To me, my struggle continues regardless. I have so many health issues and personal issues that attend my daily moments that I have barely noticed outside events.
    I do get out and do my hikes but it is not without great physical effort coupled with social discomfiture. When one can only swap bewtween these two conditions, all else that is without these becomes diminished and perhaps annulled.
    I realise my universe is not shared but that realisation only serves to open another level of unease.
    Thanks for your post and it did reach my universe in sone way.
