Returning to Activism

I wrote about activists here:

It focuses on Trump, but the generic advice would be:

  1. Step away when you have to
  2. Focus on a few issues.  You can’t do everything
  3. Have Fun with what you do
  4. Take care of yourself.  A line from Ludlum: “Sleep. Rest is a weapon.”

I will write more later about what I want to do, but these are good things to be aware of.
