The bravest cells in the weakest body


O see how the bravest cells in the weakest body
rush to cleanse the wound — and how, when the day
is long and the night is coming on, we find them
singing at our bedside, that our spirits
may rally at the sound!

the images from the protest marches, the solidarity, the kinship - i nearly begin weeping again. i would not take in any of the imagery from the inauguration but the swells from those marches swell in me. i was sure to have the children see those images, but perhaps they can't help but remember the image of me crying in the face of such hope and solidarity. (there is so much of history we must remember!)

already we are so tired. hate is so exhausting.

whatever shadow looms for the next however many years (one can only hope for impeachment), and no matter how tired, as you say, let us rally at the sound of song))

Yes, let’s, and let us also remember there is much to be learned about ourselves through it all. Thank you as always, Erin, for your beautiful presence.

Fear not, Erin. Our 'Great Leader' will make history indeed. He will be the first U.S. president ever impeached for clinical insanity.
