NaBloPoMo (11/2016) – Day 12: Tasks for a quiet day

It’s been a slow day in my world. I don’t have much to say today. (I can hear the collective sigh from here.)

I did some work for GCLS, because, as a lesbian, I feel it’s important that our stories continue to be told. So I will do the work I need to do to keep our organization thriving. The books my friends write serve as a powerful form of rebellion. Besides buying their books, this is one thing I can do to assist them.

I watched a lot of Hallmark Christmas movies, because, as a human being, the overwhelming sappiness of these films is a balm to my bruised and battered soul. Plus, when I sit in my recliner to watch movies, I end up with two cuddly cats on my lap. That’s healing, too.

I left the house once to purchase safety pins, because, as an American who rejects hatred, I want to make it clear that “I’ll stand by you” and will do what I can to help you feel safe. If you’re scared, if you are being bullied, if you need to vent – I’ll stand by you.

I practiced my scripture readings for church tomorrow, because, as a Christian, I still have faith. My relationship with Jesus is unique and it’s mine. I don’t need a (C)hurch to validate that relationship. But I enjoy the fellowship and the ritual. I do, after all, have a love for the theatrical.  And the Catholic Church is nothing if not interesting theatre.

I started looking into local organizations where I can learn more about politics and lend my voice to the process, because, as a voting citizen of this country, my voice is important. We elect a new governor in 2018. Rauner needs to go. Perhaps Barack or Michelle will run. I want to be involved in taking Illinois back.

All in all, a pretty quiet day.

Now I think I’ll go back to the Hallmark movies.
