Almost Full Moon
Sunny and humid
Happy Solstice, everyone!
Today is the longest day and shortest night of the year. Enjoy it. And take some time to connect with your community.
Not much writing done yesterday. I didn’t start feeling like myself until the evening, but I was still too tired to get much done.
Fortunately, I got contracted for some more calendar and almanac articles, so that gave a boost to my day. I also rewrote the Lindisfarne article and submitted it. It’s back to the way I want it to be. I read the publication with which I had so many problems with this article. We are not a good match. I find the material in there stiff and boring, and, if anything, it would keep me away from the places featured in it.
Also pulled together some information on the Cape for my colleague.
The news, as usual, has me shaking my head. The Today Show stays turned off from now on – how can they reward that lying racist chick because she walked out on her wedding? People are getting killed in a WAR for crying out loud, and starving and dying and she pulls that stunt because she’s stressed? And now she gets rewarded? Sickening.
Even more sickening is the split jury in Mississippi on the Mississippi Burning case. Of course, you realize the mayor of the town went on the witness stand and called the KKK a “peaceful” organization.
My mentees were pleased with the notes, and Mentee #1 has more chapters for me, which I will read over the weekend. She’s made wonderful progress with her piece, and I’m very, very proud of her.
Another long day at the theatre, so I better see if I can get some writing done first. The foot is a little better – it’s actually healing quite well, but the way I have to compensate in order to walk is throwing everything else out of whack. It certainly makes me appreciate the mechanics and intricacies of the foot in a whole new way!
