A Galaxy far, far away

 When we went to Oak Island, our rental SUV had a license plate from New Mexico.

I liked that.

I imagined people at the beach seeing our license plate and thinking, "they came a long way to the beach!"

I often feel I'm from far away.

Like a galaxy far, far away.

I don't understand things here on earth.


--why people won't get the vaccine

--why there is a billboard near Waterbury saying "Unmask our Kids"

--like why states like Texas oppose a woman's right to do what she wants about her body

--why the Governor of Florida is opposed to mask mandates

--why some people still think Trump won the election

--why the rebellion at the Capitol didn't bring us together

--why states are trying to erode voting rights

--why people of color are still under more police pressure that I am

--why MAGA folks are so upset with Biden getting us out of America's longest war when Trump set the time-line

--why after incredible forest fires and Ida's making people homeless people still deny climate change

--why Republicans in congress oppose much needed infrastructure legislation and money to help the poor

I must not be from here, but from a galaxy far, far away...
