Bring on the Diversions

February 4, 2020

I’m planning to up my reading and writing in 2020.  It’s a good idea for many reasons, but, most significantly, it’s going to be my go-to coping strategy during what I expect will be a terrible, horrible, no good, very bad year of politics.

You may have noticed I re-started my blog… that will be one form of writing. I’ve also been wanting to dabble in poetry, funnily enough. (Course, I also want a cat, wanna grow vegetables, cook more, go to bed earlier… so who knows if poetry will happen.) But I’m blogging, and happy about it.

As for reading, I’m going to finish the two books currently in process and then get started on a collection that seems to grow by the day. Seriously… I accumulate books at an alarming rate and read a minuscule fraction of them.. so hoping to make a dent this year.

Truly, anything to escape what I’m sure will be a painful, soul-crushing, blood pressure raising year of steamy, smelly, grade-A presidential BS.  Been dreading this year…


Books in progress are Lab Girl by Hope Jahren, and Tara Westover’s Educated, which was my State of the Union alternative tonight.




Speaking of the SOTU, I hear Rush Limbaugh was given the Presidential Medal of Freedom (seriously?), Trump didn’t shake Nancy Pelosi’s hand (classless), and Nancy,  in turn, ripped up her copy of Trump’s speech at the conclusion of the evening (I can’t argue with that, but I wouldn’t have done it).


Cue books and blogs.
