Curses

I have been down.  I got down after Orlando and then it seems like things got worse and worse.  I say “seems” because I have also seen some reminders that – actually – we are getting better over time.  There is less violence now than there was in the past.  We are less bigoted than we were a few generations ago.  We are making progress.  Slow, painful progress.

Meanwhile, I have been writing, but nothing worth posting.  I’m re-evaluating what I want to accomplish with the blog in general.  Part of being down has made me feel that I have nothing to say.  But I’m going to keep on saying my nothings anyway.  I’m an American after all.  We don’t have to be qualified to have opinions.

I’ll pull my head out of the news and then I’ll be back.  For now here is something funny someone else did with lemons.

About Rachel Lewis

I am a writer, ceramic artist, knitter, and new stepparent. As a playwright, I had six short plays produced in showcases and festivals in Manhattan, Salt Lake City, and Austin. My full-length play, Locking Doors, was presented by Wordsmith Theatre Company in The New Lab Theatre (University of Utah) in 2005. I co-wrote a teleplay titled “Thank God I’m Atheist” which won the 2015 “No God But Funny” contest founded by the Center for Inquiry. My short nonfiction essay, “It’s Coming Down,” was published by the online literary magazine Halfway Down the Stairs. I currently work in pharmaceuticals professionally and write recreationally, but dream of making the transition to write professionally and do pharmaceuticals recreationally. I am a Utah native and live in Salt Lake City with my Yorkshire terrier, Wensleydale Doggiepants. I am working on a collection of humorous non-fiction essays and a second full-length play.
