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.
