Was awake in the night for hours: Ukraine dragging on and the world losing interest, the appalling tragedy of Uvalde and the Repugs coming up with doors as a solution, it beggars belief!, and the election in Ontario, in which the three centre-left parties could not consider a merger of some kind, working together to make sure the disgusting Conservs and our doofus premier will not be re-elected – with a majority! – to decimate our province with highways through farmland, cutting and privatizing health care, slashing education and more. If the Green, NDP, and Lib votes were consolidated, we’d win by a long shot. But no, there’s a three-way split on the left, because the egos are unsurmountable.
Tossing and turning and raging and worrying.
But then I got good news. A writing student and dear friend was diagnosed with breast cancer and has been writing with force about her journey through the nightmare: operation, chemo, radiation. She’s been waiting for a new biopsy. Today she received the news: no further carcinomas. The @#$#@ fickle finger of fate has moved on. BRAVA!
And a FB friend sent me a message on FB messenger. Something else to brighten my day:
Thank you! Glad to receive more good news.
The garden is bursting forth. It’s 30 degrees, the humidex 35 today, hotter tmw, but it’s a blip, will cool down Wednesday. To brighten your day: a man of my acquaintance and his pup.
