Christopher, dear son, pardon me.
I know I just told you–not a half hour ago–that I wasn’t writing a blog for a long time.
People could just read my health care rant over and over and over again. And then maybe someone–somewhere–would do something about it. I would leave the healthcare blog up forever. Never write another blog for weeks and weeks. Because this issue is so very darn important.
Here comes another blog.
Here are some more woodlands photos from the Day of the Ticks. I am still scratching and itching and feeling their crawling even though the last one I spotted lounging on my shirt occurred during a meeting Wednesday night. I casually arose from the meeting, went outside the board room, and crushed the unsuspecting wood tick. Shame on him! (or her.)
Christopher said he read my health care rant twice. That makes me proud. Good boy. He suggests I write more political blogs. As a sociology doctoral student, he approves of political blogs. Alas. I usually can’t keep steam arisin’ in the political arena, even though I am a politician. (Yes, she said, in hushed tones. I am a township treasurer. I run for office. Even though our population numbers less than 482 citizens.)
I am more of a woods-dreamer than a politician, actually. Someone who loves the earth, the trees, the moose, the bear, the waves of Lake Superior, a field of forget-me-nots.
So, sorry, my dear son. I hope you and Seunghye have a wonderful couple of days down in Mexico. Stay safe in your beachfront hotel. Enjoy your time together.
I loved talking with you. I loved hearing your news.
Sorry the health care blog didn’t remain center stage forever. In my heart it will, though. Until every single person in our country–no, make that the world!–is guaranteed the basic right of health care. Amen.
