When you hit a wall, maybe you just go around it. I have hit some writing impasses lately. Writing is too important to me to give up creating new stuff and submitting it.
Am energized politically again with the health care ruling. Phone banking for Obama and writing politically, still.
OS has dried up for me lately. There are other venues to be explored and things may change on OS for me or not. I still say there are problems w/it at the top, maybe fatal problems. But it would be great for them to be resolved. More creativity and receptivity to grassroots opinion desperately needed. Power, indeed, has a tendency to corrupt and we are all subject to this.
I am pretty powerless, as far as money or prestige is concerned, so this is not an issue for me now. But human nature says when we have power over others, it is easy to abuse that power.
Now, the issue of abusiveness on the net. Should not be tolerated, period. I just refuse to engage w/people who do that. I may confront them one time, but that's it.
With the new editor, systemic problems that I think exist may be alleviated or vanish. Still, OS has been a great forum for me to create and share. And I love that it is user friendly, me being not savvy on the computer.
Heading out to yard sales this am w/Linda. Hot as blazes in Asheville, 98 predicted. Enjoyed swimming yesterday and hope to keep this up. I feel that some chronic worries in my life have faded.
It would still be nice to counsel again in the fall p/t and I will seek this out, but only in an appropriate setting for me. Will send out a few more resumes.
