Too much death. Stop.

 Around this time, I usually post a list of muscians, writers and others that have died during the past year. This time around I just can't do it. It's all too much. I'm emotionally exhausted from the pandemic (on the rise after 2 years) and the climate crisis (my brother's house is Louisville, CO, is okay, by the way, but many of his friends and neighbors lost everything) and the political crisis (will democracy survive? I think so, but I'm not sure.) And a million other things, at home and far away, that weigh on my mind. And then the list of dead people who were important to my life in some way. Too many. Enough.
