Problem

We trained our men not to be vulnerable (and how vulnerability was bad).

The problem is THAT vulnerability is right where the best in life performs/ does it’s thing.

Makes life grand.

IMO

Sound the sirens. Massive misalignment.

Lost my shit

In 200? when Tim Russert died. I was inconsolable. He was a great dude and made politics fun and a family affair. Some dreams die hard. #ohwhatever

But it still moves me. He was great for me and a lot of people based on his network (nbc).

I think his family values endeared me to him like Stephen Colbert and Conan O’Brien and… and…

Best Podcast Ever

She is brilliant.

This is poignant; leaving these recordings for her girls, grand children, great grandchildren and the nation. I’m so glad they did this. It’s a hell of a legacy (and my smart ass would like to suggest national treasure, hell yeh, love you Michelle….hahaha) should anything happen to her or at the end of life. This podcast is a beautiful legacy. World peace might well start with peace at home. They are damn funny.

I could also have called the post ‘state of the state’. I hold her in high esteem, and him too.

Also this is good- especially ch 4 & 5

P!nk is my favorite musical artist right now. She’s amazing. Her older stuff I more recently discovered, add her new stuff…it’s good.

The cutest guy, Joe, my neighbor’s grandson (and I believe dad has a very serious type of brain cancer); freshman (?) grandson cute as hell is mowing my yard this summer, working so hard, very conscientious kiddo making some great summer money, cost +tips (hahaha).

I’m sure that was a run on sentence, whatever.

He’s so cute, and doing a great job. I just hope my two boys do something reliably cool like that… I’ll suggest that when the time is right. They are still my babies now. They could pay for a part of their college, maybe their cafcard ? He’s making good money for a. freshman (?)!

I am honestly not sure he knows how not to be toxic.

This bothers me that we as a country manufacture this bullshit.

How can we (as a country) be so inconsistent about what we expect of men??

Ie.

  • care about your own feelings (be self-sufficient with and be able to handle the rainbow of feelings without hurting others
  • Go to war and it doesn’t matter how you feel

This is so crazy and conflicting s message to boys. Raising little boys, I’m trying to make sense of these things. More to come, as I spend a lot of time researching about boys to men. Pun intended.

I’m sorry, I just can’t jibe the possibility that somebody (me) might unknowingly, have been exposed or given herpes, as offensive, disrespectful, violent by a person I chose to trust. Fuck. WTF are they thinking? What was I thinking? What kind of fucked up shit has caused me to go for someone who would put me in harm’s way, cared so little for my well-being while I actively cared for theirs, had some more positive ideas about our togetherness but obviously in Layla land and need to be more cautious. Cute. Life lesson. Fuck.

Herpes is like forever. (I don’t have herpes, but unknowingly being put at risk is what makes me angry as hell)

Possibly the start of my writing career tho.

I guess we learn when we learn.
