The Suitcase Lady


November 7, 2016, 8:47 pm

I am cancelling the Suitcase Lady Blog for this week. I hope to return next week.

My blog began ten years ago as a direct reaction to the Iraq War. America was whipped up into a war frenzy, eager to send its volunteer army of poor people’s children off to fight a “glorious war”. My family, friends and I were struggling to keep some semblance of our sanity in the midst of this madness.

I decided to take time each week to dwell on the positive side of our private lives; to take a short vacation from worry. I created the blog to be a reminder of the joy all of us can find in nature, the arts, architecture, food, travel, laughter and love.

The election tomorrow will be a watershed moment for America. The choice is between Hillary or hatred; the rule of law or the rule of mobs and guns.

It’s hard to have a positive thought at the moment. Fear is all consuming.
