I hope everyone is doing what they need to do for their election recovery program. I have a sign in my kitchen that says: “Isn’t it amazing how life is one thing and then in an instant it becomes something else.”

The election outcome has a feeling to me that is similar to receiving my cancer diagnosis. It’s a shocking, unexpected shift. There is grieving, but eventually you hitch up yer pants and see how you can move forward. There will be loss of body parts and loss of function but you hope that somehow, in its new form, the body may continue.
