We had such a great weekend. From Friday night to Sunday evening, it was great music, good food, soaking in the hot tub and relishing fresh, dry, spring air. We watched the birds, we had wee cocktails. It was absolutely great. Great that is, until the time change. I cannot ever remember the spring time change ever making me feel more like a toddler at Disney World at 3pm in the afternoon than it has this week. I'm just straight up EXHAUSTED. And I don't think it's fair to have to experience jet lag if I don't actually get to jet anywhere.
How can we have any hope for this country as a whole? How are any of us that aren't white men ever supposed to feel comfortable living our lives? Simply continue to live in fear that the next time a white man has a ‘bad day’, it might be me, or my Mom, or my sister, or my nieces, or any of the women in my life that pays his price? I'm at a loss.
I just want simple right now. Give me white siding and shutters the color of the first leaf in spring. Natural wood doors. Warm Brass accents. Beautiful brick walkways. Hydrangeas I can cut in the summer and some relaxing outdoor furniture to go with. Just give me simple.
