A friend called me today to let me know she's moving out of state. My Native American, very Democrat, very outspoken friend is moving to a tiny town in Nevada that is 98% red. I cannot fathom why. Well, I know *why* (they can't afford to live in California anymore), but I don't know why *there* except that she has a friend there. I think it's going to drive her crazy, but as her friend, all I can do is let her know my concerns, wish her the best, and hope that I'm really, really wrong. And I'm going to miss her. I've admired her for years, for having courage beyond anything I can do. I don't know if I could do what she's doing. And maybe she'll make a difference there. I just don't want her to be unhappy.
Stay safe, my friends.
