I'm off to NGS today to hang out with the Terra Cotta warriors. Really looking forward to it, too, especially in the wake of our president sending 30,000 additional troops to Afghanistan.
In spite of the admiration and respect I feel for our president, I do NOT support the "surge." In fact I sent an email to the white house to ask if he'd read the fabulous Vietnam by Stanley Karnow. All war is about power and acquisition; this one is no different than any other. His decision is so discouraging.
True, too, is that the holiday season is getting to me even though I've been pretty darn chipper about it all. Last night I watched Elizabethtown with the adorable Orlando Bloom. Such a sweet movie; I cried.
And so it goes during the month of December, same as it ever was. Que sera sera.
