All of the kerfuffle about the electoral college and recounts is over and we face reality: Donald Trump will be the next President of the United States. I have a number of resolutions for this new era.
First, bear witness. For me this means a bit more blogging than in the past couple of years when I have slacked off considerably. More shorter pieces will be my mantra.
Second, try to maintain a sense of humor. I have friends to help me including Robert Waldo Brunelle, Jr. who explains things.
Third, work for good local and statewide candidates. Remember that in two years there is a midterm election.
Fourth, distract myself from 24 hour politics. There are the Red Sox and bird watching for example. There are many, many books to be read.
Keep reminding myself that life does go on.
