The second of the Three Punitive Holidays is upon us, the ones in which if you don’t have the right personal life and trimmings you might feel left out or worse. To hell with that; I send affection to all the orphans, widows, strangers, unrecognized and exiled angels, sisters, dreamers, Dreamers, to those at odds and the perennnially odd, and an invitation to the table of hopeful ideals. Here’s some winter presents for you all. And peace on earth, which is going to be the hard work ahead for us all….. – Rebecca Solnit, Facebook
