It’s 11pm’ish and I’m running on 4 hours of sleep.
And for some reason, right now is when I’m realizing how much I’ve failed some of you friends… especially my LGBTQ friends and friends of color.
From all the deplorableness associated with Trump and the hatefulness he’s encouraged to the recent nastiness coming out of Silicon Valley… I imagine you’re hurting more than I’m hurting, you’re angry and afraid and in need of allies.
And I haven’t been much of an ally or friend. I’m sorry.
I pretty much stopped posting rants on Twitter and FB, but forgot to replace it with saying “how are you?” to my friends who most need it.
I’m not sure what the best next steps are, and I feel admittedly a bit shallow sharing this on Facebook rather than writing all of you individually right now. But I’ll try to do better and I guess this is a start.
And I suppose — both with this post and in anything I write to you personally — it’s better to be awkward, to just ask how you are and mean it — than to be silent.
Again, I’m sorry. Sorry for all the crap you’re having to deal with in this messed up world right now and sorry I’ve not been better at being there for you.
And now I’m going to get some sleep.
