Somebody once told me
There's a statue in the Gobi
That's mostly gone from over the knees
Visage lying in the sand
With a sneer of cold command
Cuz the sculptor knew how to please
Well the years start coming and they don't stop coming
Empires falling and statues crumbling
Check out the words he left behind
On the statue in the desert that nobody can find:
Today my 9 year old left on a two week road trip with his grandparents to visit family four states away.
He’s SUPER excited. He’s going to have a blast visiting his cousins, and getting to see more of PA. But he’s having some separation anxiety. (Us too, to be honest.)
So, uh. I will be trying extra hard to keep busy for the next two weeks. :)
I’m reading Fall: Or, Dodge in Hell by Neal Stephenson. It starts near-future #scifi and then goes bonkers on digitization of self.
I am not sure I like it yet. I have a lot of pages to read yet, so it may turn around. I hope it does.

My town didn’t have a protest yesterday.
My partner works in an office now, so I didn’t have a car. I wouldn’t have been able to go even if we’d had a protest.
My rep is perfectly happy with how things are going. I still call and yell at his aides, but nothing changes.
Feeling helpless today.
Gonna donate to RAICES and the ACLU, again.
