Yes, the news is horrible and like you I have no solutions - so I watch with dismay and a sick feeling at what is occurring.

I love Garrison Keilor. He's so down to earth and makes the ordinary seem superlative. I'd love to write like him.

During my Mumsie years (40 years ago), I worked Saturdays at one of the most popular bookshops in Australia and GK's recordings were the most popular thing we sold - so even then, people craved salt of the earth commentary. I'd say it's even more craved now.

Most of the things I choose on Substack are those sort of writings because I hate what's happening 'out there' and like to keep my goal posts close and my view pleasant. It enables me to hope without distraction.
