I've not accomplished anything near what I wanted to accomplish with this blog.
I wanted to delve into the issue of the brittle economy, the different forms of homelessness, the confusing nature of the support system. I intended to interview experts, local caregivers, the homeless themselves.
Truth is, I remain overwhelmed, shocked and depressed about what's happened in the last three weeks.
Like Lili von Schtupp, "Let's face it. I'm tired."
I'm also getting used to the new rhythms of the day. I was only recently getting used to that at the newspaper. Before I arrived last June, the managing editor, the city editor and the digital editor left for various reasons. That left the executive editor, glorious title and all, to fill those roles and I started to get that rhythm down by turn of the year. With the pandemic, another new rhythm.
Then I had the challenges of getting a new rhythm at Motel 6 and now at the cottage.
No whining -- just the truth.
Because it occurred to me driving into town today I had not been fully truthful. One classic deceit is not telling the full truth with all context. Aquinas wrote the truth informs and falsehood deforms.
Thus you are informed.
Love you all.
