Pausing to give thanks, and join friends around an abundant table
did not lessen the fact that we have entered very dark political times in the US.
Through out the day, conversations turned political, the air thick with a sense of foreboding.
Life as we know it has changed.
Luckily, I live in California
where the majority of my friends are not willing to be silent as this dictator
moves into the White House, figuratively speaking of course.
To be politically activated is to be alive,
and for that I am very grateful.
