Hello!

Welcome! I’m Glad You Stopped By

This website is an outlet for my writing, whether blog posts, creative work, or food.

Alas, as of late, politics have been weighing heaviest on my mind.

While I have always maintained that the POTUS, all differences aside, is deserving of respect and deference due the title, the current President, and his words, and actions do not fall under the category of difference of opinion.

Therefore combating the current administration’s agenda of hate and lies has prompted me to work towards replacing members of congress who work against the rights and dignity of all and future Americans.

While there is much to decry, it has been inspiring to witness the incredible show of unity across America and the world in response to this administration.

Despite the unfettered hate spurred by POTUS’s at his own rallies, we persist in getting women, people of color, and members of marginalized communities elected to public positions across the nation. 

These continued attacks by POTUS and the Republican Party, coalesce important issues such as women’s reproductive rights, gun control, the racist killing and imprisonment of people of color, the need for protecting the safety and well-being of our immigrant communities, and LGBTQ communities, into an agenda that is actionable. Issue by which we can measure a candidates worthy of our votes.

Those who support and safe guard the laws intended to protect and serve all, versus those who attack and malign these protections. Those who support and fight to enact progressive policies that enrich every member of society, versus those protecting the wealthiest and whitest Americans.

I know how easy it is to let outrage cloud ones judgement, to deafen oneself to opposing views. I struggle mightily to maintain an open mind and civil tongue. But, I am trying to act, and react, inform and enlighten in ways that support what I believe in, without falling prey to the hate that rides along with it.

I strive to be generous of spirit, and kind. To listen without judgement to stories across the spectrum, from those who are like-minded, to those who are polar opposite. It is only through our shared narratives that the divide between us can be narrowed. I truly wish to understand the needs of all, and how we can find common ground on which to move forward.

This does not mean accepting behavior that is incongruent to ones values, or morals, but should be in support of this, our pledge…in it’s original form.

“I pledge allegiance to the Flag of the United States of America and to the Republic for which it stands, one nation, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all.”
