This is true and right. Yes. We have to carefully watch those moving shells while he fast-talks outrageous filth and lies. And OH BOY have there ever been a fuckton of those. The NY Times has them nicely listed here . This is as of July 21st. It should be updated daily.
Then there’re all the president's bizarre tweets, catalogued here by the LA Times (dated yesterday, August 17).
And then, New York Magazine details for us every last insane thing he’s done (that we know about).
To read it all in a go, as I did last night, is absolutely mind-boggling, overwhelming and rocketed my stress into the next solar system.
dick measuring with today?
Anxiety, for those of us without a giant money and privilege condom keeping us safe, is near constant and that’s seriously unhealthy. I’ve got enough wrong with me without stress induced health shit from Trump and his GOP.
What to do, what to do to keep myself out of a too early urn?
It’s good to take a day off. Ya know, one where I DON’T read or watch the news, DON’T even talk about it, not even with fellow sane travelers.
Brenda. Planning this trip – or at least coming up with lists of things to do and places to visit – will be a wonderful, calming, fun diversion from the Hell Mouth that this country has become.
And, of course, there will be lots Guinness there. mmmmmmmmmmmm
I started a new, larger sized painting yesterday – 48”x48”. I’ve been trying to switch from mondo stretched canvases (~72"x72") to working on relatively small paper (~24”x36”). While this makes loads of sense (paper’s cheaper and easier to store) this is not an easy transition. It’s MUCH more natural for my mind and body to spread out/unfurl on a six foot stretched cotton duck frame. So then, as long as I gotta paint (and I do) and it feels better to go big (it does) – I’m there.
So that’s three things – vaca imagining and planning, painting BIG and granting myself permission to indulge today.
What about you? What are you doing to lower your blood pressure and soothe your mind and bod?
