July 30, 2020 – Day 136 of my quarantime
I am very pleased to report my injuries are healing at a very rapid rate now. I had a tele-doc meeting with my Dr. yesterday over the interwebs and she was very pleased with how everything looked on camera. The infection is really responding to these 2 antibiotics I am on. The bruises on the broken toe are almost all gone.
I have spent most of my time resting or in meditation, journaling and watching/listening to uplifting and informative videos & podcasts. I think more than just my feet are going through a healing process here.
It’s impossible to miss the news entirely – but I try to keep my encounters with it as brief as possible because more and more I really do view it as dangerously toxic. 153,000 Americans dead with infection rates skyrocketing daily and so much of this could have been avoided. It’s beyond heartbreaking – it’s utterly grotesque. I’ve run out of words to describe the “thing” that is currently running the country- or should I say, running the country straight into the ground. Some Good News – In 95 days, his sycophants, running around at Walmarts wearing nazi swastikas will need to crawl back under the rocks from which they came.
Just 95 Days. We can make it, folks. I know I can make it. And a big part of this nightmare dumpster fire we now find ourselves in will be over.
I want to tell you the story of what happened the morning after the 2016 election. I went to work, feeling extremely sick to my stomach, shaken and crying. I could not even get through an hour and so I walked into my manager’s office, sat down and just broke down crying in full sobs. He was very concerned and asked me what was going on – I said to him – “You don’t know how bad this is going to be with him as president, this man is evil – something really bad is going to happen to us.”
He looked at me like I was insane – seriously insane, or having some sort of breakdown – and I was sent home for the day.
I look back on that morning now, and I wonder if he remembers my words today with 153,000 Americans needlessly dead, a pandemic ravaging the country, children in cages, our country teetering on the edge of Fascism with Secret Police grabbing people off the streets and throwing them into unmarked cars, our citizens being tear-gassed by their own military, our environmental protections in ruins, our relationship with other countries in ruins, our economy in ruins and quickly descending into a depression that will be worse than the one we had in 1929.
I really do wonder if he remembers what I said.
Sending you all my Love and Light. Stay Safe. Stay Smart. Stay Sane. Stay Strong out there.
Until next time … Here’s Toninho Horta with “Bicycle Ride”
