We breathe dust. It’s on our clothes in the closet, our tables and windowsills. As far as I can tell, it’s unavoidable. If it’s outside, we don’t tend to call it dust unless perhaps tumbleweeds are involved. If we are to return to dust and we live among it every moment except when we’re in the shower and then we live among mold and soap scum, why all the products dedicated to eradicating dust in our homes? A cheap thrill to wipe away the past? I suppose going with the flow of dust is what happens when you don’t swirl a finger through dust accumulating on a piano. Going with the flow means letting it clog the exhaust fan over the stove which leads to no flow at all. Write what you know; it’s easier than cleaning. Shred what you don’t want anyone else to know. I’d rather clean than shred.

Republican legislators in Ohio will harm & kill women & girls. Two more juvenile rape victims forced to travel out of state. And two cancer victims denied abortions, which left them ineligible for necessary cancer treatment.
Vote carefully in November. https://www.cincinnati.com/story/news/2022/09/27/affidavits-2-more-raped-minors-were-denied-ohio-abortions/69520380007/
One of my books has been removed from the shelves in some Florida school districts. Those of us who believe in books for and about ALL kids, remember this: There are more of us. WAY more.
We will prevail.
