01 First Thoughts

230.8 lbs

… downward weight trend stopped… not surprising given precipitous drop over past couple of days… water weight, ebb and flow of water in the body, like the tides?…

… two Heather Cox Richardson’s this morning… both about the same thing… the struggle over voting writes and the need for the Democrats to pass legislation that strengthens them… it is the choice between oligarchy/authoritarianism and democracy for all the people… how it can be a choice we are fighting over is tragic, but it is firmly rooted in the white male patriarchy that has been since the beginning… the patriarchy lives or dies in the next few years… the stakes are high…

… so pleasant to have cleaned the kitchen the night before and have everything set for morning routines… the amount of alcohol i drink is the determining factor… i can do a cocktail or two before dinner, or a glass of wine or two with dinner, but not both…

… the birds are singing madly outside… it reminds me of a time when i worked dayshift on a Ford assembly line in Mahwah, NJ… when the birds started singing, it was time to go to work… men’s work… the plant is no longer there…
