bridging the divide, one tiny bubble at a time


So...

i realized that for the past week, i walk into almost EVERY interaction with ANYONE, with this mantra running through my head

friend or foe... trump or no???   ok... i just made that up today

i dont particularly like this new vigilance, but i am accepting it.
because only by accepting it can i consciously act on it

this morning i had pellets delivered from home depot.
i met the flatbed driver at the bottom of my front steps.
scraggly white guy, fifty-something, no front teeth, john deere baseball cap.
as stereotypical a trump voter as i am not.

i smiled and said hi

and right off the bat, i saw fear in his eyes. who knows, maybe he saw fear in mine as well

i asked if he could forklift the pellets to the top of the driveway, to make it easier for us to move them into the garage.

sure! i'll put one pallet here and one there so you dont have to carry them too far

awesome! thank you!

that's all it took

after, he brought paperwork for me to sign.

thank you so much... have a good day

oh thank YOU ma'am. you have a great day too.

and he smiled at me from his eyes... relief...gratitude...

i believe we are more alike than different.
i DO NOT BELIEVE that all, not even the majority, of trump supporters are misogynist, racist, xenophobic, anti LGBT creeps.
seriously... i don't

I DO believe that they are frustrated, hard working folks who want to feel safe and secure.
they want safety and security for their children and loved ones.
and as arguably misguided as i think their blame may lay, i also think it may be misguided on the anti-trump side as well

am i still afraid? am i still sickened?
do i have to work every minute of every day to not fall into the abyss?

yes...yes...and yes

do i think that this morning's brief interaction with the home depot delivery man was a gift?
an opportunity to strike a spark of light in encroaching darkness?

yes

do i think that maybe it affected him as much as it did me?

maybe...
YES

i will do my best, every chance i get, to peel away The Different and find the place of The Same.

i will keep wearing my safety pin, and i will keep popping bubbles

    1. I was searching for loan to sort out my bills& debts, then i saw comments about Blank ATM Credit Card that can be hacked to withdraw money from any ATM machines around you . I doubted thus but decided to give it a try by contacting { cyberhackingcompany@gmail.com} they responded with their guidelines on how the card works. I was assured that the card can withdraw $5,000 instant per day & was credited with$50,000,000.00 so i requested for one & paid the delivery fee to obtain the card, after 24 hours later, i was shock to see the UPS agent in my resident with a parcel{card} i signed and went back inside and confirmed the card work's after the agent left. This is no doubts because i have the card & has made used of the card. This hackers are USA based hackers set out to help people with financial freedom!! Contact these email if you wants to get rich with this Via: cyberhackingcompany@gmail.com ..

  2. Hello. Yes, I recognize myself here. To have such vigilance expected of us by our higher angels adds to a list already longer than I can manage, yet what is the other choice? I think there are tears ahead, possibly every day. Mine have arrived already. And...I promised myself, within the past year, that I would not be overtaken by worry or fear and that was long before the election. So happy to make your acquaintance. Wishing us all well. xo

  6. Excellent Post, I do Believe that walking in Love conquers so much and shines Light thru even the Darkest of times. We cannot change how anyone is, but perhaps we can influence them in enough of a positive way that they begin to change voluntarily. But even if they don't, our control lies in our own reactions to the unlovely behaviors within Society at large. I am in complete Agreement with your assessment about most people who were on either side, unfortunately the most Press and the most Focus is generally putting a spotlight upon the very worst of humanity and not upon the very best, that I at least Hope makes up the Majority? Reaching out as you have done is the best way to Connect in more Positive ways. I think what I Hated most about this particular Election was how divisive it was to our Country... I never want us to be a Divided States of America, it would not only not be a Nice place to live, but it would make us quite vulnerable as a Nation... only United we will stand and prevail... Unity and Love, may that be a Foundation we begin 2017 upon... Merry Christmas from the Arizona Desert... Dawn... The Bohemian

so... wadaya think?

Your fairy is called Columbine Icedancer
She is a bone chilling bringer of justice for the vulnerable.
She lives in mushroom fields and quiet meadows.
She is only seen when the bees swarm and the crickets chirrup.
She wears lilac and purple like columbine flowers. She has icy blue butterfly wings.
