Darling, I was very dismayed, disappointed, and exasperated when I read Peggy Noonan’s Saturday Wall Street Journal column. She writes her point of view every Saturday and I have been one of her ardent readers. That is until I read Saturday’s column. After several minutes of reading and re-reading, I told my Ultimate Concierge I was going to write to the Wall Street Journal.
Instead, I continued to make our apartment in the sky look like it had not consumed 83 boxes of treasures from Shangrila! Moving around our apartment seemed far easier than having to think. It is hard to think after eight months of isolation in Elsewhere. I would move ‘again’ if I could leave Elsewhere for somewhere like, Somewhere Over the Rainbow! Wouldn’t you? What a silly question! Of course, you do.
Feeling Muddled Taking Dr. Fauci’s Perscription: Isolation
My life before COVID-19 was normal; not muddied with isolation. It used to consist of all types of interesting chapters. I looked forward to turning the page from October and the fall of the year to November and Thanksgiving and family. Then to December when bells ring and children sing and love is felt all around; To the new chapter of January and the New Year when it’s time to sweep out the old and ring in the new. There are no chapters in Elsewhere and because of that, life is a blur. The only real stimulation is hearing the roar of ambulances and police sirens that make me jump and total love from my Ultimate Concierge, pooch America, and my family.
Where Are You Somewhere?
The days float into the night and the weeks float into months and ‘nothingness.’ I miss joy. I miss feeling invigorated. I miss the excitement of looking forward to the next chapter. Where are you, Somewhere? Where is the blue sky and dreams that do come true?
I hear Dr. Faucci’s words, “Plan on not celebrating Thanksgiving with your family for another year.” I hear Biden speak and call Trump, George (for George Bush,) and tell us his plan to cure the plague is to “keep children home from school (to please the teacher’s unions) and isolate, isolate, isolate or you will die.”
Remember what I told you about the word, fear? I listen to the Governor announce all restaurants and bars will be closed down for two weeks in my bankrupt state, Illinois. I hear Trump speak and tell us there are more problems with drugs, suicide, depression, bankruptcies, and alcoholism than COVID-19. He says, “Go back to work and put your kids in school.” And, I read Peggy Noonan’s Saturday column and she informed her audience she is not voting this year!
Voting Is Your Only Way to Voice Your View, So Vote!
In essence, this is what she said, Trump did everything he promised but he is disgusting. Biden did not do much in forty-seven years but he is a good man (really?) That, darling, was her reason for not voting? Either the man or agenda was imperfect so she is not voting. Doesn’t sound kosher, to me.
Do Not Be a Clone of Peggy Noonan
The 2020 election goes beyond who will be our next President. Darling, vote on the issues, not the man. Remember your vote is your power and elections have consequences. Why didn’t Peggy Noonan write that? Not voting is giving up your voice. Why didn’t Peggy Noonan write that? You are voting for your welfare, your safety, how your taxes will be spent. Why didn’t Peggy Noonan mention that, too? Voting affects your job and your grandchildren’s education. Also, what about healthcare and open borders?
Voting in 2020 will decide if the United States continues as a Democratic Society or becomes a Socialistic Country. Why didn’t Peggy Noonan write that? She knows. Believe me, she knows.
Why I Believe Elsewhere Has Affected Even Ms. Noonan
Ms. Noonan, in my opinion, played the game… Staying Neutral Wins. In my mind, she lost. She lost big time. And, here is why.
Fear. Fear stopped her from writing what she should have written because she is a commentator for NBC and ABC News, both liberal. Ms. Noonan does not want to lose her lucrative positions.
Maybe Elsewhere has affected her, too? She has lost touch with the reality of the importance of voting because her life in Elsewhere is a blur. Or, maybe just maybe she was giving us a hint when she mentioned… President Trump delivered on his promises and his policies were good.
I Want to Ancor Myself in Somewhere, Not Elsewhere
I want time to matter and I don’t want to live in a blur where there are no chapters. As well, I want to live and I want to go to museums and the theatre and walk the streets of cities. I want to spend time with my family and friends and meet new people. Darling, I want to fly off to Europe or visit the National Parks of my beautiful America. And, I want to smell the roses once again and I know you do too.
