I could start with a free association post. (As in this is what is spilling from from brain through my fingertips). Maybe that is much of what this blog will become.
I suppose I could start off lightly...
I'm in my kitchen sitting on a rug on the floor watching my bunny...oh, that's right...it's Easter...our own Easter Bunny!
My thoughts on Easter and religion...that's another post.
I'll eventually talk about how we adopted a schizoaffective cat and a house bunny left in the brush.
In the past I highly personalized and polarized certain attitudes and political leanings. I've since realized I put off some people I care about and will occasionally really need at crucial times in my life, such as when I lost my dad a couple of years ago. Although his and my brother's leanings were definitely away from the current administration (I really enjoyed ranting on the phone with Dad)...maybe even a bit left...most of the rest of his my extended family is strongly footed in the other direction...and at his funeral were nearly all of his siblings and their kids who traveled 200-300 miles to be at the little service. As I lived closer to most of them and saw them more after I finished my undergrad and a year of of grad studies, it felt good to see them there and for my siblings to reconnect with them. My mental note of the time: Don't burn bridges ... inadvertently or not.
