Feeling Blue, Sad and Mad!
I have attempted to go into my sewing room to begin new projects for fall. Once in the room, I cannot do much of anything regarding sewing. I did go through some of my pattern stash and culled through those that I then posted on eBay this past week.
Life feels a little overwhelming of late. The loss of RBG was a huge loss and the actions of the majority of the Republican senators rushing to fill that position, being very hypercritical of their words during the Obama era.
Then the President keeps pushing the fraudulent vote by mail except when it applies to him. Plus adding that there may not be a peaceful transition should he lose. This adds to the divisiveness and continues to disrupt our democracy. I did not vote for him in 2016 and no way will I do so this election year. I realize making these statements may draw ire from many; and I still believe our country is a democracy, thus I should be able to express a different opinion without harassment. We are all free to vote for our beliefs; it is our right and responsibility to do so. Our democracy is being strongly tested.
The most upsetting of recent actions was the decision of the Louisville Attorney General regarding Breonna Taylor!! How can you charge someone for endangerment for shooting into other's apartments and not charge anyone for her death after being shot 16 times????????????? Really???????? I cannot wrap my mind around this.
To top things off is the President's coronavirus situation and his total disregard for the health and welfare of others. But then what can you expect from a mega narcissist. My past career involved working with people with disabilities, including mental illness. Dealing with someone with this mental health issue was one of the most trying for my staff and I.
I am truly concerned about our country and where this may all end. This is weighing on my mind and heart. Sewing and blogging seem like a thing I once did not only for the pleasure of sewing and sharing with others who have the same passion. It also helped to reduce stress and lower anxious feelings. It is just not working for me now.
I will get back to it in time, but for now, I am taking a break. I did wash some fabrics today, so that is a start but just could not go further than that.
