      My heart can only break so many times before I take to hiding under my desk, sobbing.

      I've got three tools in my arsenal: my voice, my wallet and my vote.

        Trust me, I'm with you on that.  The heart can only handle so much for so long.

        It's time to take a break for a bit, rest the spirit and recharge.

        It is more than allowed. We need to so we can keep going on.

        I'm going to go curl up with a good book I've been waiting for over a year to come out.

        Be gentle with yourself. We all need that, badly.

          days, Onomastic.  Thanks for helping to get news out for us all, even when you're feeling the loss and burden so deeply.  It's a terrible, grievous situation, a particularly shocking murder bringing into stark relief so many killings of young men of color, so much that's wrong with our country and our police and our laws.  But somehow it helps that you share your reactions so honestly as well as information.  And thank you for the music you post and encourage others to post.  Music is irreplaceable sustenance.  It helps us go on.

          Wishing you good rest with your book -- comfort and restoration for your spirit.

            Actually fell asleep while reading. Think this has been exhausting on many levels for all of us.

            Feeling better now, especially with seeing the photos out of Ferguson with MO State Police Captain Ron Johnson talking to folks there and leading a peaceful march. It is how things should have been from the beginning.
