Big fat droplets of rain falling from the sky for hours,
and lower than average temperatures
make for holiday weather.
Rinsing deplorable rhetoric and behavior from the outer layer of my skin.
But the work is just beginning.
The deeper dive for information will continue in the New Year,
as will the resistance to policy and behavior which
threatens our democracy.
It's impossible for me to put politics aside this holiday season.
Shiny presents and sugar laden cookies do not alter my reality.
