Too close for comfort

Did you read The Handmaid’s Tale in high school as I did?

Then Trump happened.

Now every event portrayed in the television adaptation that dropped yesterday on Hulu — only three episodes, quite frustrating for binge watchers like me — seems like a warning of things to come if we are not vigilant.

Women universally stripped of their rights to work and own property, then treated as property and debased. The LGBTQ community hanged for simply being. It is terrifying and dressed up as a return to traditional values.

I signed up for a free trial to Hulu just to watch this series. I think everyone should.

It’s that important.

Ships sink because of the water that gets in them.

Don’t let what’s happening around you get inside and weigh you you down.

POV

I was eating lunch at my desk on Friday, when I heard a couple of my co-workers chatting somewhere in the room behind me.

“You are always so happy. I don’t know how you do it.”

“They don’t pay me enough to kill myself.”

That made me laugh aloud. And today, when many folks are posting inspirational quotes on Twitter —

It deserves its moment in the spotlight.
