surviving the CASHMAS season
personal thanks and whines in December 2013
dear friends, allies, and others,
On and after Thanksgiving,
i should give thanks--
[a] that i live in San Francisco
[ instead of Hellay];
[b] that i have survived to age 71;'
[c] that i live in the USA
[instead of under the Taliban or Putin or another dictatorship];
[d] that Dec 26 must come
[letting me yip "TGIO!"],
that new activists are pushing the cause of "body freedom".
in their own ways....]
There, I gave thanks...
Now I shall
 about the CASHMAS [Commercemas] season,
which annually depresses me;
 about the fact that I depend on public computers [ at library or elsewhere];
which today allowed me to spend an hour writing + editing a long document;
only to LOSE the text by forgetting to SAVE before I signed out;
 about suffering a health loss on nov 27; so now i need to use a cane;
 about being hassled by [... a friend] on Dec 2, so badly that I must
regretfully dis-invite her from visiting my room again;
[ 5] life in the HARSHERLOIN [ aka SF's TenderLoin] [ details censored]...
my privileges out-weigh my negatives--
i need to keep reminding myself to smile...
at least until Boxing Day [ Dec 26]
SURVIVE the holidaze!!!
