My husband and I were doing something, and he remarked, “This falls under ‘Truth is Stranger than Fiction.’ If it were done as fiction, no one would believe it.” Guess what we were doing.
- Watching the news. Weirdness abounds on every news channel/media out there.
- I accidentally biked straight into a parked car.
- Doing yoga has given me a two day (and counting) bout of vertigo
- Watching an HBO series called Gentleman Jack.
Answer: 4 – Gentleman Jack. It’s a tv series through HBO and BBC. It’s a historical dramatization of Anne Lister—landowner, industrialist, and an all-around brilliant woman who took on a man’s world in so many ways. Based on her diaries, the series stays faithful to what is known about her. I was fascinated by it and even more astounded when I realized all the major movements of the show were historical fact. No way did I think that this woman could truly have lived in England, 1832, but she did, and I was transfixed by the story. I definitely recommend it!

As for the other choices – I have not gone biking lately, but yes, I’d probably go straight into a parked car because I’ve been struggling with vertigo lately. Don’t know what the cause of it is except that I have taken up yoga lately and (according to WebMD) may have dislodged some calcium deposits which is messing with my equilibrium. For all of you out there suffering from vertigo, I understand now. This sucks. And finally, I truly believe the news is a daily experience in illogic, confusion, and baffling unkindness. To that I say, I send my love to the world in the hopes that it can feel safe, healthy, and whole. And I send that prayer most especially to you!
