What I'm Doing To Stay Somewhat Sane

My friends at Jungle Red are talking about resilience during hard times and what they're doing.

It's an excellent post, and you can read it here.

I responded there, but wanted to be a bit more expansive here at Meanderings and Muses.

I have several pretty journals.  One is dedicated to quotes I like, and to things I'm, at the moment of writing, grateful for. 

And I read poetry. 

And I wander about with my camera snapping things that touch me in some small way.  This morning it was a few photos I took from my back deck.

and these two are always favorite subjects


I bake.


I write letters to my representatives.


I call them (more often than they appreciate).

I was chided and rebuked and scolded for my outspokeness back when our present president was first elected.

And, had my feelings hurt by people I respected.

Perhaps I was prescient because many of those people are now speaking out.

I'm glad.

It's no longer political - it's much, much deeper.

I will never regret speaking up and speaking out - even when my voice shakes.

I hope you all have things you're doing to help you stay sane and healthy.

Sending out some good thoughts to each of you.
