Today's rhaps is on ... Keepin' On


Candide, by Voltaire, first pub. 1759

Today I've decided that this is le meilleur des mondes possible, "the best of all possible worlds," as Voltaire wrote centuries ago. A friend reminded me that God wants me exactly where I am, so this is it, as good as it gets, Jack.


Okay.


So the world pandemic is the planet's in-your-face alert to economic and health inequality, racist and sexist favoritism, deadly climate distortions, and malignant dictators.


Thank you Belarus, Kenosha, Khabarovsk, Minneapolis—keep on keepin’ on.


Prayers for Beirut explosion-survivors and Alexei Navalny’s recovery from poisoned tea.


Gratitude for the unshackling of Jacob Blake’s now-paralyzed body.


Today marks the 40th anniversary of Lech Walesa's Solidarity in Gdansk, Solidarnośc.


And the MS + PTSD combo is actually a good thing, protects me from reckless ventures out there into the fray.


Who knows what I'd get into.
