Politics is just one big Tar Pit

…And I can’t get out of it! A long phone call an Christmas eve…while driving through a monsoon to see Alan. A meeting on Dec. 28th: 2 State reps, me and about a dozen ticked off activists. Meeting on December 31st: one state rep, me, and 45 ticked off activists! Video work, postings, commentary. And now, City council candidates wanting to meet! Planning an Austin trip on the 10th; signs, emails, blogging, oh my! I’ve been accused again of being a hired professional at this; I almost wish (couldn’t take the loss of speaking my mind, though!)
Got a Skype call from my dear, beautiful friend Huibo Wang in China while I wrote this (and got 4 emails). Huibo is the sunshine that helps: pretty, always cheerful, not demanding at all, anxious to hear me prattle to improve her English to come back. A refreshing break!
