Good News

Good news includes all the things which make us happy or otherwise feel good. It can be personal or public. We never know when something wonderful will happen, and when it does, most people want to share it with someone. It's disappointing when nobody is there to appreciate it. Happily, blogging allows us to share our joys and pat each other on the back.

What good news have you had recently? Are you anticipating any more? Have you found a cute picture or a video that makes you smile? Is there anything your online friends could do to make your life a little happier?

The Presidential Joyride

This may be the best description of the last four years:

To Trump, the party of Lincoln was a rental vehicle, one that he took for a joyride and is getting ready to turn back in, with trash jammed under the seats and stains covering the upholstery. Also, the tank is empty, and there’s a crack in the windshield.

Poem: "Fire the Town"

This poem came out of the January 5, 2021 Poetry Fishbowl. It was inspired by a prompt from [personal profile] siliconshaman. It also fills the "Hope" square in my 1-3-21 card for the Fresh Starts Bingo fest. This poem has been sponsored by [personal profile] librarygeek. It belongs to the series Polychrome Heroics.

Warning: Salty language ahead.
