One again, it’s time to “Throw me somethin’, Mister!”

Mardi Gras arrives February 16 and, even though January and February parades have been canceled (like just about every other fun aspect of life in COVID-world), one tradition continues: it’s time to “Throw me somethin’, Mister.” It’s not plastic trinket “throws” I want, but your stories, true and well told.

    I want to write something on my inner struggle with anger during Trump’s last year, my own mounting awakening around racial injustice, and how I am managing my inner state to stay engaged and productive without becoming bitter, burnout or hopeless. would that be of interest?
