Monday Morning--Oh Monday Morning

 Monday morning, the first day of the week, the first day to see how productive I can be. The first day to see how much I can get things done, from household chores to paying bills to losing weight instead of gaining it, to actually doing a few things like reading a book or two to practicing my clarinet, especially since I have a new book--a jazz book. Monday morning, so full of promise, but no answers to how the week will actually end and why Monday morning can be so stressful . . . .

Are all Conservatives more fearful than Liberals; I don't know. However, my former bosses who were very Conservative-Fundamentalist Christians were very fearful. How could I forget the many times that I was the Supervisor's body guard, because she was to scared to clean the one section of St. Paul Lutheran Elementary School by herself.  She was fearful, because one Caucasian teacher would come back to the school's gym to play Volleyball, with--dare I say it--with-- with African-American males, whom my Supervisor insisted that she sensed were 'gangsters' whom she insisted were there to look for a chance to rape a White Woman--any White Woman, even her, even though she was in her late 60's--she was fearful that they still looked at had to have her--had to have sex with her. As If Rape Has Any Thing To Do With Sex and Not Power. As If African-American Men are less civilized than other men, especially Caucasian. 
By the way, she was also fearful of the Caucasian teacher. After all, she was absolutely convinced that she, the teacher, was a 'Witch', because according to her--the only Caucasian women who hang out with African-American men are 'Witches', who are learning 'Voodoo' from them.
