I know many of you are like me. The days are blending, and your routine is looking rather bleak. Following events from around the globe, you can see that we are not alone.
The aphorism ‘Keep calm and carry on’ is probably sage advice. You and I have something in common that might keep our sanity intact longer than most. We write.
Writing is cathartic. When people grieve, they tend to hold it all in and go through all the stages of grief.
For those of you who have never heard of the stages of grief they are:
You might be telling yourself, nobody I know has died, TW what is this talk about grief and grieving?
The world as you and I knew it changed around March. For many, it was before March. Many of us saw our freedoms, livelihood and yes friends and family disappear. I think part of the issues with the riots are; some people are in the ANGER stage. The problem is, they are being lied to by the media. Misleading the public is what they do best. Their motive is their bank account. Leaving earth-shattering stories on the cutting room floor, to paint certain politicians as abhorrent is their daily tasks.
The past several months I have lost two close friends that I could not even attend their funerals.
We have all lost our freedoms, and now we see what tyrannical governments look like. Some of you, in other countries, already know this. Of course, the media is blaming everything on the president as this is an election year.
I am working on the rest of the second act of The Three Hundred.
When not dealing with customers, I write.

Stay safe, stay sane, and if you want to know how to do the primal scream, well, I have no idea. Someone posted a video of a woodchuck standing by the Grand Canyon screaming, but I am confident it was all photoshop and PC magic.
We will get through this and be stronger for it. Be wary if the media start selling you a song and dance about migrating bats from China carrying COVID 19. Some politicians will sell their souls for a Klondike Bar.
China knows they screwed up, and most probably will be making deals with heads of state to let this die on the vine. As long as their bank account reflects your pain and misery, ie Hunter Biden walking away with a Billion from China for access to the VP, no telling who is going to get rich for your suffering.
I have already seen stories about bats. Just wait. Propaganda from outfits like Yahoo, Time, and even Amazon’s Alexa flashing up little stories to breed an ounce of doubt.
All I am saying is don’t buy the bullshit.
