Put a little love in your heart

Again, those of you who know me personally know how hard it is to stay away from politics, especially at times like these. But this is not that forum, it’s The Lolly Diaries – so let me just say, “Wake up, people! Budget impasse over giving people access to health care? Self-immolation on the National Mall?”

Haven’t we learned anything from the past?

Put a little love in your hearts, please. Actually, just let it beat stronger, because surely it’s already there. We’re way past the wonder years, but surely we haven’t passed the river of no return.

Pass the damn budget, love your Mother and save the world for our darling grandchildren.

Last night, despite the insomnia, a few highly unpleasant dreams invaded what sleep I did get. When watching or reading the news gives you nightmares, you know things are bad.

So this evening I rant. Doesn’t happen often. But look at these faces and tell me we don’t have cause for concern at the stupidity that passes for our House of Representatives – and millions of little reasons like them to make the world a better, safer place, not one that keeps grandmothers awake at night.

I’ll lend you some love – we’ve got it in abundance.

If kids don’t do it for you, how about meditating on this?

That’s just a little photo from our table at Lemongrass Asian Bistro in North LIttle Rock. Fabulous food, friendly service – an oasis of peace and beauty.

They’re everywhere. Just open your eyes and your hearts.

Rant over. Concern – nah, still there. But maybe I’ll sleep tonight.
