    These are . . . so good. (And so maddening.) XO

    These are so very good… and so insanely maddening. Thank you for sharing (especially the Netflix documentary. I am off to find it and knit!)

    Whew! Fascinating (the first video!) mixed with maddening (way too many of the others!)
    And there’s definitely a supply chain issue with that serenity stuff…

  5. Great stuff this week! I’m not a teenager, but I also need to look at the banned books lists and read those books.

    Lead Me Home was powerful. In this city where I live, there also is not enough housing for those who are underprivileged. Phil and I have made friends with a couple of people (through our work organizing a Spoken Word National poetry event in Peterborough) who have gotten caught up in homelessness from time to time. One fellow lived in a canoe all last summer on the river that goes through the city. Many put up tents in out of way places in the park. The police would give them a 24 hour warning and then would cone and CONFISCATE everything, all possessions any identification, all medications, sleeping bags, ground sheets, spare clothing and cooking pots. Phil and I donated a tent to an overnight shelter to give to someone who needed it. It was stolen from the shelter. We donated spare warm socks, scarves, mitts, long underwear and sweaters. The homeless were run out of the parks, so then they set up their tents in front of city hall 2 summers ago and for the past 2 years. It is called tent city. They ended up staying until temperatures dropped well below freezing in the fall, and they had to leave when city counsellors ended the grace period. It takes YEARS to complete low income housing, while the inequities in society keep creating this situation for vulnerable people. So some try fentanyl to ease the pain and to forget the cold, dampness and hunger. Many overdose, and our community has the first or second it fluctuates) highest per capita death rate from overdose in this entire country. We support the Salvation Army homeless shelter for women and children where they are also provided with food, training and skilled assistance to get out of the ruts. But I hurt at this inequity and their suffering with no end in sight for this depressing situation.

    I read quite a bit of conservative literature when I was young and impressionable. Just sayin’.
