Spring is Really Here
But it’s more than tornadoes. In Ventura, where I’m from—as throughout most of California—it’s not about being like everybody else, it’s about being unique. To say I feel exiled is an understatement, yet I really love the natural Oklahoma—the territory, the big, open sky, the rolling green meadows and the wildlife. If only the largest part of the population weren’t so narrow and judgmental. Stillwater is better than most towns in this state because of the university, which has created a sense of tolerance. People here are more broadminded for the most part. Until the odd parents who won’t allow their kids to spend the night with one of our kids here because of our relationship. I wish they’d at least asked to meet us before drawing judgment down upon our family.
Anyway, it all just came down on me last night, but I’m feeling great today and am busy around the house doing things I should have done last week.
