In The Wee Hours: Hello, Again

It’s been a while…..again.
It’s not that I forget about the blog. I just get overwhelmed.
There just seems to be so much wrong in the world.
The Capitol Riot
Russia’s invasion of Ukraine
The stupid, never-ending pandemic.
Recent Supreme Court rulings.
The rising tide of extremism.
Yet another mass shooting.
Yet another police shooting.
Crisis after crisis in the world.

I feel like I’ve spent the better part of the past several years internally seething.
And I feel some sort of pressure, self-imposed I’m sure, to comment on it all.
At the same time, I am keenly aware that nothing I say here really makes much of a difference in the grand scheme of things. One more drop in the bucket. One more voice shouting into the cacophony.

So. That’s not what I’m going to do. Not here. Not every time something terrible happens.
If you want to know where I stand on issues, I think I’ve made that abundantly clear on my “About Me” page. In brief, I’m left of center, love Jesus, and hate what has been done “in His Name” to people in this country and globally. I am far, far from perfect, and I am still learning.

No, I think here we will celebrate the beautiful and the mundane.
My yarn crafts.
My coloring.
My adventures in cooking.
My family.
My garden.
And the occasional semi-profound thought I might have.

Even if it’s just for me.
