Y’all, I am sick. I compose these words with hazy eyes from a fever. My body aches like I’ve been beaten for a week. I am weak and nauseous. Stomach viruses are no fun, but this one is really feeling itself. Initially, I had resigned myself to not do a 5 Finds 4 Friday today, but I had to. This was one post I had to gather my strength to write.
Too much has happened these last few days. Mostly horrible things. I found myself like many praying for those in Sierra Leone and Barcelona. The horrific display of bigotry and hatred in Charlottesville left me shaken, angry and so fearful for this country. Seeing the Tangerine Toddler call the spineless racists in attendance “very fine people” made me weep for my Black, Native American and Jewish ancestors. call the spineless racists in attendance I send condolences to the family of Heather Heyer. And to Deandre Harris, I pray and will use my voice until you have justice. Mostly, I send love and light to those that can use it right now. I hope that me feverishly sprinkling sarcasm and snark on this week’s pop culture news as I usually do will give you a smile. If there is one thing I can muster the strength to do, its attempt to make you smile. So, let’s take a deep breath, exhale and enjoy some finds, shall we?
