Diversity

The quilt is coming along nicely. Revision of my mainstream fiction is laborious right now, but the results are good. I’m very pleased. I had a productive day. I hope I have another good one tomorrow, because the day after that, I’m playing hooky from work and galavanting with friends and family.

The new roommate situation is working out very nicely. I’m very pleased at that too. I knew I had way too much house for one person. A Win Win is always a good thing.

The weather has turned sour again. My plans got cancelled, so I’m staying inside in the warmth and working on the quilt. Not a bad trade off. I’m going to have to make a list so I can prioritize. I have so many things to do right now, I can’t seem to get going on any of them. That is not a good feeling. Organization usually helps me get started.

Kudos to the volunteers in California digging through the mud and yuck left behind after those mudslides a few weeks ago. They are helping to recover family treasures, pictures, whatever can be found, cleaned, and restored. What an incredible task. That takes a kind, giving heart. Such acts always make my heart sing and remind me that we can overcome. There are good people out there.

I’m not sure why people forgot the lessons of their youth. “Red and yellow, black and white, they are precious in his sight.” All the little children of the world were included in that song, ALL of them, in the teachings, in the verses. When did people begin to think that red or blue were sacred and the other side was bad? Diversity is good, it is strength, and it is the very fiber of this country. It was and always will be what makes America great.
