I started my day as I always do snuggling and giggling in a cozy bed with my children.
Later I stopped by city hall to reserve a moving truck parking permit in front of our house for unicorn trailer parking for my daughter’s upcoming birthday party.
Then I stopped by our wonderful pediatrician’s office to pick up a copy of my son’s complete immunization and (perfect) health record, for circus camp. In the waiting room I passed a mother and her severely disabled child in a wheelchair.
Then I came here to my favorite cafe for the three things I depend upon to operate: Coffee, Wifi and Time Alone to utilize them. As you can see from the photo I also have access to a beautiful healthy salad with a generous dose of protein on top. I also have a chaotic cornucopia of notes and reminders of all the rich muchness swirling around my realm of responsibilities.
I walk around all day wondering how any of this is possible. The random luck; there is nothing more inherently deserving in me than them to deserve these relative fates. I am incapable of understanding the callous greed of men and their ability to dehumanize others and profiteer off their suffering.
