Stella my love,
Mama tells you all the time to not be scared. But I've got to be honest, lovey lou. I'm scared.
There is a lot of spooky sh-t happening in the world, creeping closer and closer to home. I don't watch the news because a) Twitter keeps me in the loop and b) everything rotten in the world is slammed right in your face and it makes my guts ache.
But the recent violence has been inescapable. I won't get specific because I truly feel even speaking about the crimes is what the bad guys get off on, so I'll just say this. People are hurting each other in surprising ways that can't be defended or expected.
Welcome to Mama's worst anxiety-inducing nightmare. I am sweaty everywhere.
