Asteroid 3 times taller than Niagara Falls to zip past Earth on 1st day of fall.
The media assures us it will only come within 4 times the
distance of the moon from earth.
Remember when you still trusted the headlines?
The media assures us the Yellowstone Super-Volcano will not erupt in our lifetime,
the La Palma volcano will not send a super Tsunami our way,
the Wuhan Lab did not originate Covid-19.
Dr. Fauci said so.
Oh, wait ....
He later told CNN the U.S.
funding Wuhan's Lab was necessary.
I used to trust the headlines.
But that was in a different America.
Now, I trust in The Father.
How about you?
How has your world changed?
“I held an atlas in my lap
ran my fingers across the whole world
‘Where does it hurt?’

Every time I walk through my apartment door facing those 21 steps that after a long day at work seem to have grown into 44,
"The force is with you, young Midnight, but you are not a Jedi yet!"

This threatens to be a rainy week with Nicholas (the name of my co-worker by the way)
having a good chance to become a hurricane.
Sometimes it feels as if Mother Nature has declared war on Louisiana!
Speaking of war ...
No American writer is more associated with writing about war in the early 20th century than Ernest Hemingway.
He experienced it firsthand, wrote dispatches from innumerable frontlines,
and used war as a backdrop for many of his most memorable works.
How Hemingway coped:
"After being severely wounded two weeks before my nineteenth birthday
I had a bad time until I figured out that nothing could happen to me that had not happened to all men before me.
Whatever I had to do men had always done. If they had done it then I could do it too and the best thing was not to worry about it."
Have you used personal hardships and trials in any of your novels?

"It is only through labor and painful effort, by grim energy and resolute courage, that we move on to better things."
— Theodore Roosevelt
As a frontliner, I see the heroes all around me working long hours, braving infection to help those in need.
