It’s 2016:  A presidential election year in the US…and it is already heating up!  Actually, candidattes got a jump on things in 2015, so we get an extra long dose of political rhetoric.


I say, get your survival kit ready; you’re going to need it.


First, the zapper for your TV.  Flipping channels or muting ads is a must!


For detoxing, some really funny political cartoons of your own choosing or making.  Laugh often:  It really helps!


Then, plenty of time away from all things election – TV, publications, the Internet, discussions..  Get some rest and perspective.  You might need some earplugs, especially if you live with or near someone who is really into television or politics.


Good books?  Games or puzzles?


Then, there are those people who will completely annoy you because their views are so WEIRD!  You might need some ready-made excuses to get away from them.


All of us could use some help here:  Do you have some additions to the Election Year Survival Kit?

I am like a rich tapestry, full of texture and color. I'm a musician, composer, poet, gardener, homemaker and friend. I worked as anLCSW for 22 years; as a socialworker for 26 years all told. Before that, I was a rehabilitation teacher. My passion is to come alongside others; to empower and bless them. That is why you will find plenty of variety in my blog. Two very important things to know about me is that I am a life-long learner - An explorer and sojourner. I also belong to the Lord Jesus...now, before you get tweeked out: I am not saying I am "religious." There is a huge difference between all of the rules and empty practice that often gets associated with Christianity and the kind of life that comes from being in a relationship with the loving God. May you find encouragement, inspiration, insight, good ideas and a laugh or two as you read my posts and comments.
