This ramp-up to the anniversary of Katrina’s landfall is brutal. It’s not bothering me so much personally, but the city as a whole is on edge. There’s some mighty negative energy going around. At least that’s how I’m explaining the recent spiral of bad stuff in my life. In the last month, Xy had a miscarriage, my bike got stolen, our friends across the street got evicted — which resulted in Xy having a big altercation with their landlady — which resulted in us getting a nasty letter from a lawyer. Not to mention the big fire in our neighborhood.
(Incidentally, I’m password-protecting some content that appeared here related to that legal dispute until I can learn more about what the law says. It galls me, but hopefully it’s only temporary. If you need to see it I can give you the password. Or maybe you can guess it!)
Yes, life has sucked lately. I’ll be glad when we get past this time. Meanwhile I’m trying not to get caught up in the negativity by focusing on positive things, like this cute kitten:
And, of course, the Rising Tide conference. See you there!
