It was raining, and we went shopping clothing sales for E. This is a big deal for her, buying actual clothes, after a lifetime of having very little for herself. I myself have given away bazillions more clothes than she’s ever owned. Yet she feels spoiled and guilty “indulging” herself by buying a few necessities. I have to keep reassuring her that it’s all right.
These ducks (mallards I think) were out in the mall parking lot, along with many geese and even a gosling or two, enjoying the puddles. That was my nature fix for the day.
I read this very helpful article that I recommend: https://firstname.lastname@example.org/how-to-stay-sane-if-trump-is-driving-you-insane-advice-from-a-therapist-42e982195e22 . It gives a different psychological perspective on dealing with the political insanity around us right now.
That’s all I have for now.
