So today is the President’s birthday. I wish it would be a more peaceful time for him but that is not in the cards. But I wish for him the strength he’ll need to deal with the madness that is engulfing our world.
I have a post I wrote yesterday but it already is somewhat overtaken by events. I may strengthen it or just skip it. Things are accelerating and we may see resolution of some things and new priorities emerging. But certain things still hold. Ground yourself in reality and focus on the things that will be important to you regardless of the outcome of political and cultural events.
We’re getting into unknown territory. Some of the rules we thought were laws of nature are starting to break down. Don’t take too much for granted. Situational awareness could be very important. If you live in or adjacent to unstable areas be especially careful until things settle down. Keep in touch with family members and be ready to lend support if the need arises.
So as Sgt. Phil Esterhaus used to say on Hill Street Blues, “let’s be careful out there.”
