With every good intention I set about to put my life in order this morning. I took a nice walk to clear my head of the cobwebs (politics). I took all the yarn out of my closet and laid it on the bed to organize. All was well until I checked my iPad, and it was all over, I was again glued to all the news.
We're now something like nine days into this administration. I thought by this time I'd be able to go on with my life but not so. It's like a firehose spewing out crazy things. Congress is having a hard time finding their voice but last I checked there may be hope.
Don't tell me people taking to the streets and flooding Congress with messages of protest is not working.
I graduated in 1960 and lived in a little town of 300 in Texas. I missed all the chaos of that time. When it came time to protest the Vietnam War I was probably in support of LBJ.
Now that I'm 74 I'm finding some of these protests interesting and some are beginning to call to me to participate. I am concerned though about this one on immigration. I worry that it could easily turn violent.
The March for Science seems to be coming along nicely. I was amused last night reading about their idea to come up with a "Thinking Cap" for knitters to knit.
One comment was not to make them pink like the 'pussyhats' but perhaps grey. I don't much like grey. I don't think thousands of grey hats will make a statement. Time will tell what they choose but I doubt it will be this pattern.
