I really want to stop writing about the election.

But it’s all I can think about. It’s completely consumed me.

Ok, here we go. My attempt to claim new territory.

It sort of has to do with the election, but it’s a step in the right direction.

I am terribly grateful for all the people I have talked to, on Facebook and in real life, who share my terror and confusion over the election (there’s that word again). There is a feeling of solidarity that’s emerged among people who I know and don’t know, concerning our uncertain futures. We are talking about how to take care of ourselves during such emotional instability and upheaval, how to proceed intelligently, how to organize ourselves into action, so that we may be the change. It’s empowering to have others who feel like I feel showing themselves. This is a new land, and we pioneers have got to back  one another. This part is a good thing. This is the only good thing I can see so far.

But I’ll take it.
