i require tea.
I read just enough of the State of the Union address to realize I was about to fall back into despair, which isn't really useful, so I stopped. Reading reactions (to all of the past week, not just the speech) from people who've actually lived in authoritarian states was not exactly cheering either.

It is clear that 45 and the GOP leadership do not actually care about the economy, human rights, or the rule of law, so that's peachy. I don't know how to get through to people who just *don't care* about other people, or democracy, or not completely hosing the world our children will be living in.


I was going to write about something other than politics, but have now forgotten it all. Damnit. Other than that I have officially closed the album business to new clients until further notice, which might mean summer, but not might, because something has to give and that's the hardest. (Also the most lucrative, but uninterrupted hours of quality brain time are really, really hard to come by right now, and I can paint in two minute bursts if I need to. And it's not like I can make customers show up, though of course since I posted that today I got a flurry of inquiries.)
