What's on My Mind

When wealth is passed off as merit, bad luck is seen as bad character. This is how ideologues justify punishing the sick and the poor. But poverty is neither a crime nor a character flaw. Stigmatise those who let people die, not those who struggle to live.

As one who has little money, and has worked hard my whole life, this strikes me where I live.
I am much better with the sinus infection (see post below), I eventually went to Urgent Care, it cost a small fortune for me, and I am hoping I can make it up, but thanks to Obama I  won't have to worry about it next time. Love your thoughts. XOXO

Hello my dear, sorry I have been hibernating for way too long, so here I am catching up with everything. Hope you get much better xoxoxo

Hi Annie, I'm so glad you're better.

There is a lot of thought and perspective in your quote here . It costs so much to just live. Too much for too little. I hope the new year is super good to you. Boy did you create some awesome art this year.

Take care. Happy holidays, my frien

Annie said...

M.Kate, so happy to see you! I hope you are happy and well. Big hugs. xoxo

Kj, As a single woman who has devoted myself to my art by doing unskilled work to get by, hoping the art would support me, it has not, but still I am happy, it would be nice to have lots of money, but the main thing is health!
You have a wonderful holiday too!
Love, xoxo

sending love to you sweet Annie… that's something.

Annie said...

Laura, that is everything, and health, money is only money :-). xoxo
