Do people still have a sense of humor? Both of my sons like to laugh. I sometimes question their sense of humor, but that’s my job. I am their mother. And I seldom believe their political beliefs. But that is true of how I feel about a lot of people. I love all of them anyway. I try to make it unconditional …. with conditions. (SIGH) So, in their honor ( “collateral damage that I am….), I am posting my version of the Sunday Funnies, without comment. Maybe. WELLllllll… Maybe a few comments. HAHA. First, some questions without disclosing what I believe…. (as though it won’t be obvious….)

Are Republicans overtly trying to undermine our democracy by voting against things that help a lot of people?

Will Californians ever realize how good they have it without living for a time in the South or middle America?

How do I love unconditionally people who hate what I love and/or love what I hate?

How do I accept and love my new state of being? What is that? you ask. [with edits from me]

“Don’t expect people to understand what you are going through, they can’t. A stroke (big or small) is so disabling and life-changing, it is impossible to understand unless experienced; only other stroke or TBI survivors will understand your struggles. Unfortunately, it is true with most unfortunate things happening in any person’s life. It is better to share your struggles with them than to get any sympathy or help you might need from people.” Are you “collateral damage”?

So, I am sharing my struggles and questions with you and sugar-coating them with “the funnies.” FYI, it is Paris Fashion Week. Thus the Gorgeous gown at the top.

Best, Jay P.S. Rough Seas make me seasick, and I don’t know how to sail. And I know the grass is greener for me in California and in France on the other side of the fence.
