Russian tanks rolled into Georgia today.
So much going on with war and blood, and I am beginning to feel guilty about spending my time in artistic pursuits rather than something more useful. My whole life, big countries have invaded small countries while the big countries pretend to hate each other, holding one another in stalemate by mutual fear and respect. I don't want it to be that way for the rest of my life, but it would seem that that is inevitable.

Another surge in Afghanistan means more blood on the sand and more coffins and flags.

Everything in the news today depresses me and makes me feel worthless as I plan my trip across the bay to see a play tonight, thinking about how great it is that I am going to hang out with some of the poets I love this weekend.

What cheer, Hypolita?
