My mood today is grr. It’s not you, it’s me. Well, it’s “the news” and “politics”, so I just need to get over it. It’s not so much that the Democrats lost the House yesterday. No, my disappointment is more local. As in we elected a Republican as Governor last night, at a time when Natural Gas companies are pouring into the state and drilling at will. If the Republicans have their way, these companies won’t be taxed AT ALL for the gas they extract from our lands. They talk about a balanced budget and yet reject a real source of revenue. This is not good news at all for our public schools, universities and libraries. Grr.
And yet, life is good. My wife just did an amazing job painting our living room. My daughter and son are getting smarter by the second. For me, I think I’ve finally gotten the writing bug again. I’m not sure what I want to write yet, but I do know I want to write. It’s been months since I’ve felt this way. Again, a very good thing.
What I think I’ll do is take a deep breath and just concentrate on the things I can control in my life. I find myself happier that way.
