Some Sentences, Dec. 27 – Channeling the negatives




Dec. 27, 2016 – For a couple of weeks now, stories about white supremacists trolling Jewish residents of a Montana town have dominated my newspaper. Necessary? Absolutely. People need to know about this. Discouraging as hell? Oh, yeah. It’s hard not to get flattened by the virulence.

What to do? Focus on the extraordinary goodness of the people surrounding me, of course, as well as the stunning natural beauty just outside my front door. And, more practically, take the anger at the bozos who perpetrate this vileness and pour it into my writing. That works, too. Book 6 is the beneficiary, words stacking up like mad.

Would I rather draw my energy from another source? Damn straight. But for now, this will do.
