2016 is pretty much fired. I'm struggling with the murders and hate and various things going to hell in the proverbial hand basket and everything that a lot of other people are struggling with. So I'm dealing with it by organizing my space, trying to get projects done and trying to get back into the rhythm of writing while supporting all of the good things that I can support. I'm going to a MN Lynx game in a week and will be there  early for the Black Lives Matter pre-game minirally to support the Lynx after the head of the police union attacked them. I'm going to go hear Malala Yousafzai speak in a week. I'm supporting various folks in various ways to keep doing the work that they're doing. And so we keep on keeping on, doing what we can do, making things better where we can. Hang in there and take care of yourselves.

Edited to add: Because small joys help, just met with a work colleague who's coming out as a transwoman at my day job. My area is very Xtian, very conservative and I'm the only out queer (probably the only queer period, but hey, hope springs eternal). Her area, on the other hand, has stepped up to the plate and been pretty supportive, up and including making our LGBTQ employee's food drive for the Aliveness Project a pretty big success on their donations alone. And that's pretty damn cool. :-)
