Such a hubbub today. Shock and outrage over an old story, perhaps dismissed by purveyors of fake news. Shift the focus. Wag the dog.
Glenn Greenwald told the whole story some time ago after intense, cautious and responsible journalism.
I will not take time to rant. Just get a grip. Television is rarely a place to seek truth. The core values of journalism are mucked about and we must be responsible to find the bigger picture. Go back a few years and read this book.
Take a deep breath, and question everything.
Happy International Women’s Day
Left over right,
not too tight.
Together we weave
Let us tether the present
to the future,
feet firmly on the safety
of the past.
We are responsible

Big leaf maple, Acer macrophyllum,
leaves shine sugar coated.
Alive in a hundred shades of green,
I am the Northwest, soul of the planet.
Catch a raindrop.
Tip your chin up.
Drink sky water.
Splash into the lake.
Mystery lies in downward clouds.
Wait for the midnight owl.
Get your ducks in a row, she said.
I’d rather gather a gaggle of geese,
snow white bellies settling
on Skagit flatland.
My ducks scatter.
I depend on geese in rotating
formation. My turn,
As above, so below.
She opens her hand
The lines of her palm—
life, love and fortune—
different than the day
Star patterns change,
Water ripples change.
Now changes in her heart.
A gate opens for peace.
