It Just Gets More and More Unsettled

I don't have a weekend reading post in me this week. The news is coming in too fast to try to write anything coherent about it. I think things are just going to get more and more unsettled and we all need to try to hold on to the fact that we don't know how this will all turn out. On one hand, that makes it easy to worry about the worst outcomes we can imagine... but on the other hand, there are other, better outcomes possible, too. I am trying to remember that, and when there is an action to take, take the action that aims for the better outcome. That's all I can do. 

Yesterday was Petunia's birthday. I took the day off work and we went to the beach after she finished with school. It was very nice. If you can get away from computers and TVs and out remembering that the world has a lot of beauty in it, I recommend that highly.

I will give you one link, a podcast I listened to this week that I really liked: Ana Marie Cox's interview with Eva Hagberg about her book How to Be Loved: A Memoir of Lifesaving Friendship.

And of course, you rabbits for the week:

Try to have a good weekend, everyone!

    Thank you for saying hello and sharing the beauty.
    You are appreciated and you make a difference.

  2. I'm not able to look for the better possible outcomes yet but I'm also not looking at the worst case scenarios either. We have no idea what's true right now, there's hardly any point in speculation when everything is this unsettled. It's just so uncomfortable knowing we know nothing concrete.

  3. Our neighbors got a pet rabbit recently! My littlest kid has been enjoying it, not least because I call her Bunny.

    1. I wish I could have a pet rabbit! Sadly, I'm allergic to them. They make great pets. Our hamster is cute, but rabbits are a bit cuddlier!
