best intentions

I do the same thing over and over. Expecting different results. I’m supposed to know what to do. I’m middle-aged. I’ve been around the block. People expect me to know.

I don’t.

Maybe I did know once, but I forgot.

I know other things, though. Ask me that.

About easilyriled

My mom was Edith, my dad was John. I have a brother, who is Shawn. I have many friends and allies and mentors in my life. I'm white, over-educated, working in a field for which I am not yet trained, messy, funny, smart, lesbian, feminist "Not the fun kind", as Andrea Dworkin said. But I, like the feminists I hang with, ARE fun. I play accordion better than I did, and i'm kinda learning the concertina. But really, only theoretically. So no. Not learning concertina. But learning how to do my new job. I suspect this will be lifelong.
