I have nothing.
I feel like “Miss Conduct” ought to have wise words about civility and the inherent difficulty of living with others. She should be able to put the events of this weekend into historical context. She should give her readers hope.
Maybe because I lost someone I loved and respected on Friday night, and that has thrown me off balance. Maybe because the reactions of my family to this weekend’s shooting have me eating my guts out from within. Perhaps Robin has too much going on to be Miss Conduct.
Or maybe Miss Conduct has nothing to say. No wisdom. No snappy retort.
I spent a lot of time on Sunday reading the Psalms. And listening to the Ramones. Both are remarkably cathartic in times of emotional upheaval. (I wanna be sedated. Selah.)
Find wiser words elsewhere. Already more ink has been spilled than blood.
All I have for you is the knowledge that you matter to me. You do. Friend or commenter or lurker, I love you.
I may take a break from this blog for a couple of days. I don’t know. Please don’t worry about me if I do — it won’t mean I’m not capable of writing, only that I need to take care of myself in other ways.
Take care of yourselves too.
