Right – not a sight (photo above) that we came across today – but I suspect in another couple days this will be happening here. The snow is turning to slush. It was warm today – after waking up to snow coming down like mad, by noon it was warm and by 2 p.m. it was sunny.
So we took the dogs for a walk at Carpenter Creek.
And came back home.
How about that for an exciting day?
More cerebral stuff: I submitted another short story to another magazine. And am plotting on another story. I have written 54 or 55 – not bad.
Also – having a most interesting debate(!?) with an ex-boss/client on politics. He’s far right – and I’m left of centre – I’d say halfway between middle and far left although getting more left every single day.
I’m doing my best to remain polite. But every single time he calls me something like a far-leftist and I actually take the time to look up the terms and what they mean, I take them as compliments. Yes, I want more income equality and a kinder, more cooperative world that is free of war and where we are not ruled by greedy, unprincipled politicians and corporations.
Yeah – I’m good with that. I hope to see democratic socialism. I hope to see homeless people given shelter and indigenous people treated fairly and as equals.
I hope for truth and justice and I hope to see money out of politics. I hope to see the environment take priority in all we do and I want to stop the tar sands and pipelines and fish farms.
Yup – left-wing flower-child peacenik! That’s me!
