Ramblings - Various
I brought up issues with racism that happened when we were in high school 50 years ago as well as a recent incident I was a part of with classmates (without naming names) with my classmates via email and on Facebook. I was told that I was making people uncomfortable and that "politics" should be left out of our communication.
"Politics" evidently is the potential dangers that my step-child faces because they are Of Color and not "normal" in their appearance gender-wise. "Politics" clearly is the "micro-aggressions" that my wife faces nearly daily living as a Black Woman.
We, as men, seem to have basic responsibilities to be able providers and similar. We lack the responsibility to end our rape and other abuse of others who are different from us. We have no need to speak up and end the abuse.
The lake gives me energy
The lake gives me peace.
I am slowly learning
Not to Rush
The wonder of my exercise - early morning
Pushing my body
So, so hard
Feeling Strong - a nice change
Building my breath, my muscles, my spirit
