#188 - Don't Like Grief & Politics
One More Funeral
It seems like I've been watching funerals for months. George Floyd and John Lewis and now Ruth Bader Ginsberg.
It was sobering to watch these former law clerks, carrying her casket.
Then, I spotted the president on the screen. He stepped out with Melania and received some boos from the crowds on the street. That seems disrespectful. But it's also disrespectful to be talking about replacing Justice Ginsberg, the day she died.
I hate it that I can't just watch and absorb this ceremony, without feeling anger. I hate the way politics is interfering. I want to feel sad about the loss, without feeling worry about what will happen, now that she's gone.
So I mourned in my own way. I created my own little shrine for RBG in the kitchen. Silly, I know. I have amused myself often during these pandemic months, with whimsical decorating. But today I found a little peace, with my Patriotic Chair... decorated with donkeys and Ruth.

I started this complaining list/blog, in May 2016. I posted 200 gripes about my breast CANCER and then I was done.
On March 13, 2020, I started venting all over again, when another disease (starting with a C) interfered with my life. This time it was the invasion of COVID and it affected every person. I ranted for a year, until I got my COVID vaccine in March 2021.
CORONARY Artery Disease was the reason I restarted this blog on September 26, 2021. This time it was my hubby Don, who was dealing with a worry that started with the letter "C".
Coronavirus and Cancer, Coronary Artery Disease! All are evil, but none can totally get me down... if I vent! I usually end up feeling a little more positive at the end of each post!
