A Few Thoughts From My Noggin

I am catching up on some thoughts I have had through the week about various things rattling around in my noggin.

CANADA DAY – I normally celebrate Canada Day because I am a big fan of the country. I have embraced its culture and it’s television programs. However, with the situation with the First Nations children and residential schools it didn’t seem appropriate to do so. I still love Canada and what happened to those impacted is something you can’t ignore with fireworks and cookouts. I am hoping for understanding, reconciliation, and accountability to happen before the conversation of forgiveness can take place.

MY DEMEANOR – I am more likely to say goofy things than I am to act goofy these days. My humor is dark and whatever the opposite of dry is. Maybe there is a teenager still living in my heart and mind. Also, I am a little grouchy these days. I really have never been fun to be with so that is something.

COVID – It is good to see some normalcy, but I hope it’s not too soon to do a lot of big things. Over the past couple of weeks, I have been to a movie and a soccer game, and I am still OK (I got vaccinated so there’s a measure of protection) but there are a lot of people who are putting themselves and others at risk.

JUSTICE – Seems that justice is not meant for everyone. Britney Spears is still beholden to her dad, but Bill Cosby walks free. Strange and sad.

More to come. Stay tuned.
