    Most people wouldn't think I'm either fat or flabby, and yet I've been flabby in parts since middle school. It was part of the change. I put on a lot of weight in high school both due to height and female-ness. Nowadays, if I get below 150 pounds people will think I'm ill - too skinny. But that's the only way I would be flab free.

    And when I work out I gain muscle mass and begin to gain weight and strain my clothes. Lol.

    Can't win, can we?

    In a world of flab and a house of mirrors...

    I went back to the first page to read your story again. How's your mobility, still good?


    I'm not sure if it was purposeful, but my parents taught me to know myself. I've always known the Bible quote, "know thyself", and it made sense to me.

    My biggest disappointment was/is witnessing people who know these things and throw that knowledge away for whatever current payoff they can get.

    Many of them are chanting and waiting to see others in pain so that they will feel better themselves. (Lock her up!)

    Feel she will indeed be locked up or maybe worse and as she is another oneself I also feel for her decision making early in life as she likely was hurt badly.

    lol, Aianawa, Aianawa, Aianawa. The right has been trying to frame her for 30 years and still haven't gotten it done. It's just not going to happen. Trump, on the other hand, has lived a life of duplicity and made the fatal mistake of letting his narcissism bringing him to the forefront...a forefront that he simply couldn't resist. I've said it and applied it to many situations...Self-Immolation. The divine and the demonic thrive on it.

    Is that similar to the dynamic, "If I can't have her/it, no-one can"? Destroy rather than let go. Trump does like to break things.

    Hi DT,

    surely close enough...This whole thing is REALLY crazy...making. The hallmark of any personality disorder. And Trump is locked into that aspect of himself. He has cast a spell of 'ugliness' to support his 'plan'. His plan at this point is to 'escape unscathed'. I don't think he can do it but he is a master...a true master of the game. The reason the government and the entire nation really is flailing against him is because he is unprecendented...No President ever has lacked so completely the 'Right Stuff' representative of the American Way. The American Way is not without serious faults but at its heart it has a desire to provide justice, balance, and at least a semblance of compassion. He can reflect none of those virtues. He is truly the embodiment of 'bizarro world'.

    The right is simply playing the 'wait' game...They know he is a goner...but the right doesn't want to walk away from this as abject losers. He is 'their' representative after all, which of itself, is a perversion of the Presidency. The left is in a wait game as well. The left recognizes that he is the antithesis of all that is holy pursuant to Americanism but can't act in clear conscience because of the 'distorted and confused' nature of Trumpism and the spell of tribalism. It is a challenge that doesn't demand confrontation but does require safeguards to prevent a recurrence of this kind of 'bastardization'.

    It is a historical moment for the essential 'liberation' of these United States.

    Okay, maybe you two have gone into a fourth world and left me behind.

    Likely so, Aianawa.

    And we're here now and for a while, and so we must deal with the now.

    The now is leading to what will be the now for our children. We must take care about what foundation we leave behind. We need to make sure we leave a foundation rather than ruins of debt and lost alliances.
