I long to make my world smaller lately. I just want to curl into my little cocoon of a homestead, nest deeply before winter fully sets in, and tune out the world beyond my family.
‘Cause let’s face it; the world is ugly. I don’t care what your political affiliation is, I think we can all agree it’s a bit of a dumpster fire right now. Even if we dial it down from the global or national chaos, we’re looking at holidays that may not be able to be celebrated with family, safely anyway, school or job situation that are precarious at best, and insecurities on all levels.
It’s taking its toll on all of us. I don’t tend to ostrich in the face of adversity, nor am I very demonstrative in my activism. Like most things, I tend to do a lot, quietly, behind the scenes. Right now, I’m out of steam and out of possible actions, and I just want to tuck my head and wait to see what life is like when the smoke clears.
