It's The End of the World as We Know It and I Feel Fine

I've had a song going through my head for the last few days, as the Inauguration approaches and we bid goodbye to a president I liked a lot, opening the White House doors to one who, if you follow me on Twitter and Facebook, you will not be surprised to hear, I do not.

But this post isn't about politics, really. I try not to be too loud about my own personal views on such things, since I know that not all of my readers share those views, and I respect everyone's right to hold their own opinions.

This post is to address my own depression on this day, in part because I know that many of the folks I'm friends with are also feeling sad, angry, and fearful. None of which are helpful, in the long run.

So I'm going to stay off of social media today, avoid the news, and remind myself (while working, and then later, writing and probably drinking wine) that what we think is the end of the world rarely is. I am going to do my best to stay positive in the face of a lot of negativity. I'm going to try to do as President Obama urged in his last press conference, and remain hopeful.

It may be the end of the world as we know it, but I think we'll be fine.

Big love to you all.


  1. I think you're very right. Is it going to be hard? Yes. Will people get hurt? Yes. Will a lot of damage be done in a great many ways? ...seems very certain.

    But it won't last forever. And there are chances to reverse any damage done, if not during, then after.

    Much love and many hugs to you and yours as well.

  2. Hi Deb, have you seen the version Michael Stipe did with Stephen Colbert for New Years? Cracks me up every time.

    Also, I love the Baba Yaga books and Veiled Magic, and I can't wait for the next instalment of either! :)

    1. I did! It cracked me up too.

      And yay for loving the books! I'll be doing a cover reveal for the next Veiled Magic book any day now :-)
