Yes, It’s Me, Back Again

Well, where have all the months gone since my last post? I must tell you that each week I say that I will start blogging again and each week passes without a blogpost.

So today is the first day of the rest of my life.

Yesterday when I opened this post from Elizabeth at  Laughing  Cow in France, it took me back two years to when I had that awful misadventure. I hastened to assure Elizabeth that life does go on after a major accident, even if at a lesser pace.  Elizabeth then continued the next day with part two. It is well worth reading and reminds us how quickly life can change and how lucky we are to live in countries where medical assistance is readily available.

And my tale tells how very good our bodies are at healing themselves even if sometimes they need a little medical help. I hope that Elizabeth’s journey is not too hard for her to bear.

Another post I read today is from Nancy at Not Quite Old. In light of the Kavanaugh/Ford proceedings currently playing out in the media around the world, this blog post is very timely.

Most, if not all women will have been the subject of sexual abuse at some time in their lives. Trump asks why Kavanaugh’s accusers did not report the abuse at the time? We as women know why. So thank you, Nancy, for this post. It brings home to us just how vulnerable women and girls are to “rougher and meaner” men and boys. And of course, boys and young men are also vulnerable to these predators and have been equally reticent to seek justice, for where is justice if the perpetrators are men in high office, the church or company hierarchy?

I shall be following the proceedings of the Senate Committee Judicial hearing on Thursday.

Justice will not be served until
those who are unaffected
are as outraged as those who are.” 
― Benjamin Franklin

So enough meandering for today. You have been warned – I shall be back.

  1. Good to see you back – and thanks for the link to Laughing Cow. I used to follow her, then lost her. Glad to see she’s a survivor and hope she pulls through this last disaster safely.

    • Apparently, Elizabeth hasn’t been posting on the blog very much and so I was glad to see her back, but not glad to read of the accidents.
      I linked the two posts because both dealt with vulnerability. Thanks for commenting, Cat.

  4. Thanks for the mention, Judith. I’m definitely still alive, not quite kicking yet, but getting there slowly…
    PS. I go by the name Lady E because as you guessed, my real name does start with an E… but it is not actually Elizabeth 😉

  6. How nice to find a post from you this afternoon! I will check out the two blogs you mentioned. I too have been watching the hearings with mixed feelings. We shall see where it ends. Is this what the US has come to? Take care, Judith!

  9. We are going to see an explosion of accusations in the US that will be overwhelming and astonishing. The news scene is going to get very ugly. May the true predators be exposed and punished and God help the falsely accused. I am a falsely accused victim by ex on my own very young child. Exonerated but 34 years of pain every day since.

    • Oh, Carl, I am sad to read of the false accusation against you. It must surely be difficult to live with day by day knowing the accusation was false. I am pleased to read you were exonerated. Cheers.
