I’ve been using up all of my good thoughts in other places these last few weeks, and I haven’t been giving you my best work. I think you know that, in my actual life, I do a lot more than just write this blog. I’ve told you how my job can be really hard, and that it’s been a challenging few weeks, and that I really love my work. I also mentioned last week that I’m working on a writing project outside of this blog. I love this space, and I want to treat it right, so today I have something special for you.
It’s a photograph of an Elk, taken on Saturday.
I was going to find a good poem about an elk for you to make this super literary or what-not and, what do you know, the only poem I could find was about a bunch of wolves stalking and then murdering an elk. Not exactly what I was going for.
Instead, I have something better than a poem about elk for you. I have an article about a little boy who loves My Little Pony, and a school district that learned [unfortunately a bit too late in this case] not to punish the victim. You’re a bit of a slow learner sometimes, America, but I’m forever proud of you when you try to do better.
Happy Monday, my friends. Have a wonderful week!
