{gratitude: 11.19}

I feel like I’m on a roller coaster – Finished and turned in my book – YAY!

Amazing National Book Award announcements, where a writing colleague I “Internet know” won – YAY!

A friend’s birthday – YAY!

A complete miscarriage of justice in the courts… ::sigh:: Expected. Expected. Expected.

And that’s such a shame. But, we go on.

We Go On

Resilient is a word resolved:
‘re’ reappears when it is called,
without a ‘si’ it gets to work.
It will not ‘lie,’ it never shirks.
A strength that knows what ‘right’ should be,
A zeppelin’s worth of buoyancy.

Keep faith, friends.
