They flew the principal at my daughter’s high school out of state for emergency treatment due to complications from Covid19.
Got all sorts of messages from the school and community in support but I want to look a few of these people in the eye and ask them if they still think this is a hoax and if they’ll make excuses if this goes south for him.
I wish him the best and hope he pulls through but it doesn’t look good and it is hard not to wonder if he was put in a bad situation because of undue political pressure from the ignorant and willfully blind.
Had a few words here and there with folks but have avoided some conversations because there is no upside and I don’t suffer fools well or offer quarter to those who push stupidity.
Took a look at a few things and thought about the 100,000 words only you read and asked my gut where the finish line is.
Came up with so many of the same answers I always have, shrugged my shoulders and figured it is going to be one hell of a crazy tale.
Got one more day of work before my staycation comes and I try to put work aside, try being the operative word.
Been telling people not to expect to reach me but have told a few I’ll check emails periodically. Have mixed feelings about it because it seems selfish to expect to be able to ring a bell and have me play butler.
Except I have some plans that are tied to those I have given the bell to and might be leaning on them as much as they are leaning on me.
Trying to get some doors to open and can’t do that without setting the board up to make that happen and this is how it works.
All comes back to recognizing I don’t have as much runway to work with as I once did so I have to push now to give myself room to take off.
When people ask what that means I say I am just doing my thing. Some say they don’t like it and I tell them they don’t have to do it with me.
I can roll on my own if need be and find others along the way who want to play scarecrow, Lion or Woodsman.
Had a few people ask how I find food to eat and I roll my eyes because there is still a broad list and anyone who says otherwise is making excuses not to hang out or not paying attention.
Been reading old posts and thinking about whether I ought to leave, edit or delete some of them.
Mixed feelings about it, shows a snapshot in time and a small indication of thoughts from then but some of it seems kind of embarrassing so I mull over whether I am truly bothered by it or not.
Some of it looks familiar and some looks like someone else.
Fits the conversation with those who say they don’t quite recognize me and makes me snort because I wonder if they ever really saw who I am.
Did I change or did they?
Does it matter?
Probably not because I am going to follow that yellow brick road all the damn way because I need to see where it goes.
Ain’t that a kick in the head. 🙂
