I have a new laptop which in the set-up has managed to goof up my email account and is taking a great deal of time. The good news is that it is fast, light and actually works. The bad news is that even though much time has been spent with comcast trying to figure out why my password wouldn't work and though I now have a new password, neither one works, so I can't access my email and tomorrow is a new and fresh day. Also, some dear animal is digging away and shoving tiny splinters of wood into the kitchen by the dishwasher, which is not a good sign and I have been trying to entice it out from under the house with peanut butter and crackers but I am afraid tomorrow may lead to harsher measures. Many distractions these days, though I see that Georgia and Russia may have resolved.
Driving today I was listening to a discussion about Georgia and Russia on Michael Krasny. The conclusion was that Bush Sr. and Clinton negotiated with the Russians. They didn't make a big deal about it. It was part of the job. Now, baby Bushie has felt no need for diplomacy or ongoing negotiations and that is why what happened, happened. Also, it is difficult for us to say one cannot invade a sovereign nation since we did, so our credibility is nil, and now, Bush speaks of dismantling the endangered species act. Dante needs to keep adding new layers to hell just for Bush. Down and down we go.
May our dreams rock us in knowing compassion, forgiveness and gentle waves and rhythms of sleep.
