Another day, another apology. The fact is that the last day and a half have been Murphy’s Law every step of the way. Yesterday morning started out bad and then went downhill. Nothing earth-shattering — we’re all alive and in one piece, the house didn’t burn down, and no wars have started. It was just a series of domestic problems that escalated, along with new problems cropping up constantly. By the time I got the last phone call with inconvenient and expensive bad news, I was numb, and probably surprised the caller by showing almost no emotional response at all. More of the same today, of course.
However, to the extent bad things happen in threes, I’ve had my three bad things, and then cubed them, for another three. I hope I’m done now. I’m finally in front of my computer, reading and thinking, which is always the best antidote to any despair or anxiety that seeks to envelope me. All will be well.
So, check back in about an hour, and see if anything interesting has happened here. Or, ever better, leave a comment at this Open Thread and you will be the interesting thing that happens.
And for a little perspective, it’s always been bad (including California droughts and protests against the 1%):
