small notes about american midterm elections (and other things) #4

these emails are dedicated to maintaining a sense of calm and balance, to fill your inbox with a smile, a cheer, a diversion, or a reminder. there will be many more posts on November 6th than usual. and no matter where you live, there will be a message for you 🙂

from my inbox:

C: “Thank you for the election day notes! They are helping. Love and gratitude from Day 31.”

B: “Thank you! here in nyc we need all the support we can get..keep them comin.xo”

Brigitte: “Oh yeah. There was one election night I downed 3/4 of a bottle of wine sobbing on the sofa. I felt like extra crap the next day, and the world felt hopeless. Not gonna happen this time.”

Mr J: “Oh my god, thank you so much for this! Election evening typically turns into some kind of fucked up drinking game for me, constantly checking the results. This time, I’m going to go vote after work, then eat all of the remaining Halloween candy in the house while binging Netflix.”

Mindful Me: “love the photos💕 Something about the art, hubby’s paintings, now photos from people — art does something — different but similar to your voice talking to me … It speaks deeply, occupies space, fills it with new ideas and smiles, and shoves Wolfie into the tiny corner.”


I want to put this online, to hold myself accountable. I want to document the noise in my head. I'm tired of thinking about drinking. date of last drink: june 30, 2012
