Something to keep in mind during discussions of current events

Siderea has some posts that apply to since-the-election. The one I'm going to link here is about keeping in mind the differences between the short, medium, and long term game. The very quick thumbnail sketch is that it is a reminder not to derail ongoing discussions by demanding people change the time frame they are thinking in, and especially to refrain from doing that without signaling your lane change.

But this LJ has some other posts useful for since-the-election, including how to think productively (in my opinion) about really catastrophic outcomes. So you might want to go over there and check things out.

In other news, I went to a jam this afternoon. It is the first time we've had a jam there--at a little greek restaurant in an area so rural I was driving along wondering if my GPS had played me false until I was just about on top of the place. I had a lot of fun (in part because it was me and my mandolin, and three other women with guitars, so I got to do a lot of melody breaks and leads.)

However I had to skin out of there in less than an hour because I was also going to a friend's wedding that day--with an unscheduled diversion where I had to drive out until my phone could get enough connection that it could find the way to the wedding, so I was about five minutes late.

The wedding was quite interesting--every pagan wedding is different, so I never know what to expect. And we had a nice potluck afterwards, where the hummus I just learned how to make last week was a big hit.

And now I am very full and sleepy.
