I have not felt like writing in a long time. I don't really feel like writing now, but I thought I would anyway. Things are not bad here but very busy; our daughter started school and it is very very complicated. Not for her, she loves it and has a fantastic teacher and is really thriving. But for us it is complicated, going to a school every day, some very familiar smells and the sound of walking on concrete and it just brings the past back very strongly. Some people got very frantic trying not to deal with it but now there is more space, which is good because I really do believe that things move through, but it is awful to be in the middle of them moving through. I am having one of those times when I am just so angry at... well, people, I guess. Because kids get raped and used all the time and so many people manage to believe it is this vanishingly rare thing that hardly ever occurs, and then meanwhile these same people create the culture of abuse and usage that makes it so easy for this to happen and so hard for the kids to be believed. Ugh. I do not like going through my days angry and sad and feeling the past. I hope it changes soon.
