I’m tired and worn out. It’s spring and the nicer weather has me focusing on other things, jailbreaking from a long winter hibernation. I don’t refresh my feeds like I used to. And even the uplifting articles, I pass on clicking open to read. I can’t take another black person murdered, framed, irrevocably harmed, showing their celebrity ass or promoting consumerism aimed in my general direction. I’m just bitching. But am asking am I alone. And how do you deal with taking a break and returning with fresh eyes. Because I love The Root and The Salad Bowl. But my plate is full.
