[My Internal Monologue Right Now]

There’s lots of stuff going on in the news and politics and the world and on social media that feels interconnected and important and I’d like to talk about some of this stuff too.

But increasingly, I don’t know how to do that without offending someone.  Or saying the wrong thing.  Or being attacked for even having an opinion (or sharing it in the wrong place or at the wrong time.)

Hell, I know that just doing a vaguebook post like this one opens me up to charges from some that I’m somehow making all of those issues I’m alluding to above about me rather than the actual issues in question.

Double hell – or there’s the fact that I’ve read and re-read this short post over and over for nearly half an hour, imagining how different people might read it, react to it, even change what they think about me because of it.

And I haven’t even really *said* anything! (But then again, some people will likely read this post and think I’ve said everything.)

So I’ll just leave off by saying that I’ll likely have more to say on some or all of these topics eventually.  Or I won’t.

But right now, I’m going to go to bed with my mind spinning with thoughts of ego, hypocrisy, culpability, loyalty, positivity, and the inanity of the circular firing squad.
