Today is seriously one of those days of pounding my head against metaphorical walls trying to get what’s in it OUT. It’s not working today. So I will sort and organize photos and start the project that uses a different part of my brain. Speaking of different parts of the brain, am reading this book, and it’s keen –
…and gosh golly gee willakers is it good.
Am also reading, at the gentle nudging of my friend Stephanie, this fully satisfying tome –
It’s making me want to reach back and hold my mom and dad’s hands when they were children and had to worry about polio and wars and bombs from the sky.
…and I’ll allow myself an aside: mothers and fathers and caregivers, get your kids vaccinated. We are SO blessed to live when we do. Read some history before you abstain because of the off-chance (the off chance that has been debunked, by the way) that your child might become autistic after their vaccinations. I’ll take the chance to keep my kid alive and healthy and YOUR kid alive and healthy. In other parts of the world parents would give their teeth, their hearts, their own legs so that their children could get the vaccines that are readily available to the lucky few in the Western World. So do it, please. Don’t be so icky. That’s it, I’m out.
