I've been applying for jobs, had a second interview for one job, looking for a place to stay and am helping out on two side projects.
That makes me thankful in that it fills my day. I remain blessed with people who reach out and ask for help or offer projects.
Just the other day, I received an extraordinarily kind note from someone at the Community Kitchen, thanking me for showing their customers as normal human beings going through a hard time.
I noted that in a brittle economy, the social safety net needs to be more robust and ready to accept the challenges of the cracks in our system.
All of this is a precursor to say I'm going to be off this blog until after the day of the elections.
At some point during these last few months, I told my daughter I was tuckered out. She told me to take care of myself -- that I've been busting my ass for 30 years.
As always, she is right.
Have beautiful days until Wednesday, friends.
Peace and more peace unto you.
