Haven’t written for a while…

… because I’ve been dealing with the recent death of my sister. The circumstances of her death left me filled with anger about the manner of her death (no foul play, just the idiotic state of American health care, if you can even call it that), so I’ve been waiting to write until I processed that rage, lest it channel itself in ways that I would not want. Hopefully, I’ve learned the lesson of my father, who never spoke at all when he was angry, because he knew that words were like bullets, and once you fire them out there, the damage is done, and it is absolutely idiotic to apologize to someone you just shot. Better not to draw the gun of your tongue at all, lest you shoot someone with your words and wind up hung by them as a result.
