Distrust and misunderstanding galore, with gatekeepers (rightly?) not wanting to let things out of control, and steadily making themselves irrelevant. That was the summary of several conversations I had today.

The specialist I saw for my incessant cough broke up with me.  “You’re discharged” he said, after explaining the issue, and a rather trivial solution.  It’s a relief to know I don’t need medication. Better hydration, sleep habits, and vocal exercises will be enough.

Agitators for change are a tribe. I found a few more today.  Ideas that were dormant for a while get another chance at revival.  Not every seed planted germinates or sprouts or survives or flowers or fruits or grows into a tree. That doesn’t mean we stop planting or nourishing the soil or watering it.
