Smokey Takes A Stand

Smokey Takes A Stand

Welcome to my home on this cold sunny morning in Arizona. Make yourself at home while I put the kettle on. I can serve you coffee, an assortment of teas, and a wonderful combination of grapefruit,orange,and tangerine juice that I am drinking. Citrus season is in full swing here, so we are enjoying our harvest as well as some of our friends’ fruit. I have found a recipe for red grapefruit salsa that sounds really tasty, so I plan to whip that up later today. Please take some citrus back home with you when you go, since we have a super abundance to share with you. Relax and tell me about your life and writing.  Did your week turn out as planned?

The year of the Rooster is here to signal a new beginning.  Fire rooster is feisty and proud by nature.  We have all witnessed the political season and the wild start of the new administration and knew we had crossed some kind of Rubicon.  Things have changed radically and quickly in ways nobody really anticipated when the election began.  As Hill correctly observed we are more divided that we thought.  Although the war with the intelligence agencies was unprecedented, it is nothing in comparison with the National Park Service movement to publish scientific facts.  The forms of protest are reinvented and refined daily.  The year of the cock is all about reinventing everything.  We are seeing that happen, whether we like it or not.  Change is here.  I did support the women who marched, but I feel very passionate about supporting the scientific community freaking out on behalf of science. I am afraid of dark ages without facts.  We can’t afford to wipe out any more knowledge for political expediency. I feel like we all just jumped off a very steep cliff without our flying suits.  We need science more than ever.

I wrote another photo prompt piece this week. I went with a free verse. The picture was intriguing, as they always are.  That is the point of using the prompt.  Maybe this week I will write two pieces of fiction.  It is a freeing experience to be able to just make up anything you want from your imagination.  My muse will eventually get warmed up to this new way of expressing myself.  In the meantime I am retweeting all the @altNationalPark accounts, and joining the army of comedy on twitter.
