Thank you, Augusta. I enjoyed that. Taking control of our own little spaces feels good. The entire point of what we do here is to express ourselves with a bit of honesty and, hopefully, a little vulnerability — just as you do on a regular basis. I’m no longer tolerant of those who can’t be respectful.
Side note, I got a hateful response from… wait for it… a Boomer on this very article. Even in trying to respond to this, he just could not help but do nearly every single thing mentioned in the article, spent three paragraphs just “proving” I was wrong. No work of his own, no community of his own, no ideas of his own — just anger and a need tear me down.
Off to Zoom my Dad, from the far more enjoyable Silent Generation. :)
