Escapism

You can tell if a person lives a reasonably charmed life if one of the biggest challenges of her day is not to reject or try to dodge a yoga practices that demands her effort and pokes at her fears. And you know things are bad inside her head if she rushes to that practice, adds on a 7 mile walk and reads and reads and reads fiction and memoir but drops the self help book she was loving because thinking altruistically or creatively while everyone is parading the ugly and the mean, seems like disengaging from reality. Seeing that it is not the candidate but the electorate who is the authentic fascist is way scarier than  doing 5  backbends instead of 3. Anything but what is playing right now in our home stage.
