The Dahlias are Here

The dahlias are blooming here now in Portland and fall is everywhere in the air. We have slipped off the relentless climate change track for a respite into typical summer weather. Misty drizzly gloom in the mornings burning off in the afternoons.

As I am struggling with anxiety this week for a number of reasons I found this letter and it's attendant article helpful.

Listening to the writer Tomi Ungerer talk about what it was like growing up in occupied Alsace during the war he says it wasn't the fear so much as the constant anxiety that was problematic.

We aren't at war! At least not here at home. Sometimes... she says...shaking her head.
