....but the wind sure is blowing! A cold and blustery day today, but we haven't had any snow this December so far. I don't want a blizzard, but....December should have some snow! All the folks who poo-poo global warming? How do they explain all the extreme weather? The drought, the hurricanes, the tornadoes, the...everything weather-related that is unprecedented? How is it that one can deny science? I might not understand it, but I can't dispute that people far smarter than I am figure out things that I have no means of figuring out, which is why we rely on experts for a whole host of things - fixing our teeth, curing cancer, building bridges, teaching our children....not the tangent I thought I'd be discussing today, but as I listen to the wind howl outside, this is what I'm thinking about.
Also thinking about the holidays and how this is a difficult time of year for so many people. There's such an emphasis on buying gifts (what if you don't have the money?) and being with family (what if you don't have them anymore or near where you can get to?) and the "perfect" holiday in the eyes of others that put such a burden on those with other ideas about what it means to celebrate a day. I hope that whatever you celebrate, you get to do it in the manner you wish, whether it be with your loved ones, your beloved pets, your friends, yourself...whatever makes you happy on these days and doesn't put pressure on you in any way. That's my wish for you.
