ON THE BACK BURNER

March 23

 I use to be apolitical. Now I am not. I need to stop reading the news,listening to the news and talking about the news. It is making me sick. I have become obsessed. I have begun to look at friends who don't agree with me as suspect.I don't know what is true and what isn't true. How do I tell them apart? I am getting a headache. I already had a stomach ache. There is a disconnect some where here. I vote for certain candidates who I feel represent me and what I think I want and need. They said they represent my way of thinking. Then when elected, they don't listen to me. Is my thinking the problem, or are they the problem? Did I miss this in civics class that everyone needs to take in eight grade. Don't these people that I voted for know that I will be voted against them next election. I have that power ! Taking a line from a TV commercial,"I guess it doesn't matter ". It does to me.

Don't quite know how this got to me but it was on the top line of my computer (not in email) But I really enjoyed it. I truly admire you.

Everything sounds so wonderful Leona. Venice will seem boring . I would want to move to Portownsend where the kids are living. All sounds great . Is there?
