I don’t respect the military, I don’t respect the police, I don’t respect elected officials. I’m not gonna apologize for not supporting and respecting people who willingly partake in and benefit from oppressive, violent systems.

One week ago one of my kitties, (my guy, in fact) was hit by a car. A few hours later my boss, who I adore with all my heart, was put on administrative leave. I was told today that he put in his resignation last night. I’m so bummed. It’s been a really rough week.
Scurvy’s passing is painful, but I can handle it. I already see silver linings and I have pretty much accepted it. But now someone else very important to me has to go. I may write more about this at a later time because I still have some processing to do and writing it out helps. Right now I feel too upset, but I needed to get it off my chest.

"One heart is not connected to another through harmony alone. They are, instead, linked deeply through their wounds. Pain linked to pain, fragility to fragility. There is no silence without a cry of grief, no forgiveness without bloodshed, no acceptance without a passage through acute loss. That is what lies at the root of true harmony."
