So, the question is, why is a redirect needed? It adds to to getting around to all "my" blogs. Perhaps someone knows the technical answer.
And to the redirect we all are dealing with. What we are doing with all the emotion surrounding police brutality and black death by law enforcement, or white women invoking death by law enforcement.
The country mobilized to demonstrate like this last back in the sixties, over an illegal war in Vietnam. Young men were again being drafted, and where they were being sent and why was known to every one of us. The protests went violent in 1967, against Dow Chemical (Napalm) recruiting on the U of Wisconsin campus.
I was young then, young enough to add my body and voice to the fray. For the first time in fifty years, I think, tear gas was fired in my home town, twelve miles away, to turn back protesters from doing damage to the downtown. And now we even have a president inciting violence at home.
I am so unable to deal with the need for protest, I find myself redirecting in the wrong way and place. It's not funny. Covid-19 took another fifty Ohio lives today. I've spent too much of my time in isolation cooking and reading. But today...
Today I went grocery shopping, the first of generally two trips a month. My monthly grocery budget is around a hundred dollars. Today, June 1, 2020, I spent ninety six dollars. I bought a pint of raspberries. I made a crosatta. And ate a slice.
I bought enough peaches to make an entire peach praline pie. Which I will do.
Speaking of redirecting, how do I enlarge a picture? I truly am at a loss right now. I truly wish I knew what to do, outside my usual keep calm and carry on. Even making a phone call to my governor seems useless, at this point.
How useless, you ask. We are overrun by Covid, by brutality, and by lies. The headline news that the white house is overrun was illustrated by pictures of the Ohio Statehouse.
