Dear Republicans… – January 3, 2021

January 3, 2021 Dear Republicans, who are breaking their oaths of office, I take back my sincere effort to have a giant sing along with the song, “This Land is Your Land, This Land is My Land”. I apologize to Bruce Springsteen if this disrupts his plans for January 20, 2021. It could have beenContinue reading “Dear Republicans… – January 3, 2021”

Dear 2020 – December 31, 2020

December 31, 2020 Dear 2020 I already wrote most of a goodbye letter to you that was full of all the blessings this year brought to me and my family. You know, the usual things people are grateful for- family, community, faith, health, jobs, peace, personal growth, etc. I really do feel that gratefulness butContinue reading “Dear 2020 – December 31, 2020”

Dear I Don’t Know Who – December 23, 2020

December 23, 2020 Dear I Don’t Know Who, Help, my thoughts are jumbled, and ideas are tumbling around my brain and I think I need to hear some other opinions. Yesterday I had a great idea about celebrating teachers with increased pay and a free day at a spa until I realized the difficulty inContinue reading “Dear I Don’t Know Who – December 23, 2020”

Dear Someone, Anyone – December 21, 2020

December 21, 2020 Dear Someone, Anyone, The days are getting longer! Last night there were clear skies and we saw the bright confluence of Jupiter and Saturn and it was spectacular.

Dear Ivanka – December 14, 2020

December 14, 2020 Dear Ivanka, I apologize for calling you by your first name, but I didn’t know if you go by Ms. Trump or by Mrs. Kushner or maybe, Mrs. Trump-Kushner. Which do you prefer? Actually, this entire letter is a bit chutzpadik (nervy) but my questions for you are questions lots of peopleContinue reading “Dear Ivanka – December 14, 2020”

Dear Anyone – December 10, 2020

December 10, 2020 Dear Anyone, It’s been a while since I felt the need to write to you. Things seemed to be going okay. The election was over, and the transition started and the new Cabinet looks solid and competent. The noise about “stealing” an election made me think about masked bandits holding up aContinue reading “Dear Anyone – December 10, 2020”

Dear Friends, Family and Complete Strangers – December 1, 2020

December 1, 2020 Dear Friends, Family and Complete Strangers, Call me Pollyanna, go ahead, call me naïve, call me too idealistic. You could find other adjectives but no swearing or bad words. I have an idea that could bring people together. Seriously, SINGING!!!! Not just anything, but songs of America. Pull out your Rise UpContinue reading “Dear Friends, Family and Complete Strangers – December 1, 2020”

Dear “People” – November 29, 2020

November 24, 2020 Dear Friends, who don’t think there will be a new administration legally elected on January 20, 2021 or who don’t think the DTvirus is really a thing, or who don’t think that climate change is a serious problem, Let’s discuss the issue that some of you don’t think this was a fairContinue reading “Dear Friends…. et. al. – November 24, 2020”
