At random moments through the day today -- exhausted by work and horrified by U.S. politics -- I thought of this old icon, which expressed my feelings exactly.

Also expressive of my feelings -- internal screaming. But anyway.

WHATEVER, evil GOP politicians. I am not a vengeance demon, nor do I play one on TV, but right about now I'm thinking that electoral vengeance will definitely be A Thing.

So let's also think of joys:

*rain, a fierce short storm, and the promise of a little more
*wearing my old, battered, once-white Converse sneakers today
*Champagne with a good friend downtown, right before the storm
*scarlet-flowered sage, spreading in its little bed
*the other morning, a hawk on a chain-link fence, turning its head to stare at me and Master Danger as we walked by
*rewatching "The Husbands of River Song" because Twelve/River forevah
*less than a fortnight til England!

Cheers, and better days.

Watch your sage and you may see a hummy, they love those red flowers.

It's all so horrible. I can't even - and it's not my country where the horrible is happening. I think you have the right idea, to not forget the joys. Your list is wonderful. Hurray for it and hurray for you!

**hugs**

Yay for hawks and sage and River Song and England!

Let's work hard on the other stuff. Vengeance is a dish best served at the ballot box.
