I’ve tried hard to write Training Tiger Woods part 4 this week. It just didn’t seem to matter in the wake of the election results. For the first couple of days, I walked around feeling like I had witnessed 9/11 all over again. I remember those feelings of shock and disbelief alternating with rage towards my fellow man that marked the days and weeks after 9/11.
As I watch the president- elect fill his cabinet with ultra-conservatives and hate-mongers, I keep asking myself, “How could we do this to ourselves?”
But, as they say, life goes on. Because I cannot simply uproot my life and leave this country and its troubles behind, I must find a way to find balance and help those around me try to create something positive from this madness.
How? I’m not sure yet. But for now, I’m going to start at the beginning. I’m going to center and breathe.
