A digital valium with a glass of wine, kind of

Friends, the world is a heavy place. The buoyancy of Obamahope has sunk under the weight of the extent of the criminal organization still in charge.

I'm tired.

I've been outraged for so long.And now, when we deserve a bit of lightness in our hearts, the news gets grimmer and grimmer.

So, I read Vogue's feature on Michelle Obama and it was a tonic to my soul, better than a glass of wine and a valium, not that I would know anything about anything like that.

See if it helps you feel a bit brighter.

I hear ya, girrrl. I hear ya. Today, my soul is lifted by music from my Home town, New Orleans. I downloaded and have played and played Dr. John's 'Such a Night'. If we lived closer together, I'd rush it to you. Music is always my tonic, my joy, my release, and where of my contentment begins. I have also discovered some Canadian artists - Rose Cousins, Jill Barber and The Be Good Tanyas - that nourish me beyond measure.

By the way, I've been meaning to e-mail you for months. Don't forget - We Did It. We really did. The current criminals are going down - the dust storm will continue - but all that will be left (for awhile mind you, but....) will be their claw marks of desperation.

I feel better already. Thank you.
