Thought of the Day: It was nice powering down a little last week, though as you can tell from the task list above, it wasn't a full power-down. Not even half of one, really.

Still, it was restful. Kye and I spent it dealing with the minor side effects of our first COVID-19 shot. My bursitis flared up; and I got a low-level migraine that hung on the balance of five days, but beyond that, nothing major. Kye was the same: she too suffers migraines, which flared up; and her cycle has been thrown off a bit. Again, no biggie.

Our second shot is scheduled for the 19th.

The gullibility, not to mention the cowardice, both physical and moral, of so many millions who, instead of admitting to all three, dive even deeper into Lake Crazy, where the anti-vaxxers, Qanons, and various fungal species of MAGAts swarm, isn't much of a surprise anymore to me. Not after nearly half of them voted for Trump. If anything, COVID-19 has shown, for good and possibly forever, just how broke America is. We're broke spiritually; we're broke morally; and we're broke courageously. Our dysfunction now threatens our democracy, not to mention all life on Earth.

If you haven't gotten your shots, get them. Post up. Do the right thing.
Have a good evening.
