I want to apologize for not posting last week. It would be easy to blame it on my internet being down (which it was), or the fact I ran out of time (nope had lots of it) or that I ran out of ideas (sometimes but not last week).
No, the real reason is that I couldn’t summon up the motivation. I felt bad for the Hurricane Sandy survivors. I had a bad case of the blues caused by sending my daughter back to Washington and leaving my other daughter back home.
And these last few months of people tearing each other apart because they disagreed over political beliefs has set my teeth on edge. When did the phrase “agree to disagree” go out of style? When did it become normal to call a sitting president “Hitler”? I wasn’t a fan of the last president, but, I would have never compared him to a butcher.
I promised I wouldn’t talk politics and I’m not. I’m just talking common sense, compassion and decency.
I think this was the first presidential election that made me feel sad. No matter who wins, let’s hope we can all get along afterwards.
So I was the disappearing rail car last week and not just because it was Halloween. I hope every enjoyed the trick and treating, and of course the non-caloric candy!
