Media coverage reached absurd frenzied levels in the lead up to the election. Comedy shows no longer had to write scripts. Actors could simply recite actual dialogue. In the wake of all this my soul saving stance has been to shut out the media including Television, internet, radio and newspapers. I went cold turkey. The first week or so was unsettling. Missing the emotional rush and filling newly available time was disorienting. I got through it. I'm on the other side. I'm reading books, drawing and painting.
We are in an emotional time for our country. My best prediction is that it will bring out the worst and ultimately the best of our nation.
