Collection of Beautiful Things (III)

I made myself rather worked up this morning.  On Facebook, I read a woman’s response to the comments made by Mr. Trump.  I totally agreed with her, and I wanted to write my own response to those comments.  I was really to the point of sitting down and writing an open letter to Mr. Trump.  It was going to be an emotional, insulting, and an incredibly bold post.  Then I remembered, not a day after those comments were released, I wrote More than.  I wasn’t even thinking about Mr. Trump’s comments about women when I wrote it.  And I think, that post itself is a big enough statement against any degrading comments.

I thought, instead of writing a post about how angry and upset I am, why not focus on the beautiful things still around me, and be happy?  This election and political season is a freaking mess, and I need some pretty things to remind me of the goodness of the world.

Tim Burton’s The Corpse Bride (I could talk about how wonderful this movie for a very long time)

These are just a few things that help to keep me sane is all of the nastiness going on.  I hope some of them reminded you of the goodness in this world.

Ciao for now,

Julia
