Whoops! Missed It!
Yesterday was World Car-Free Day. There are plenty of days when I don't go anywhere in the car. And probably MOST days, the long-suffering spouse doesn't go anywhere by car. But yesterday? When we could have made a statement? Not so much. Sigh.
Next year, I promise. I don't hold out much hope that marking these special days, declared by varying well-meaning people and groups, makes any difference. Except I do think that someone has to hold onto the "out there, but still recognizable as a functioning human being" edge to society. So, at least on some issues, that will be me -assuming I can hang onto the functioning human being part of that equation, that is.
