no matter what happens tonight....

...and it looks like that Donald Trump will be the next president of the United States, I can say only this:

The only thing I can do is continue to do what I've been doing. I will continue to write things that bring people joy. I will continue to write about interesting characters who don't necessarily conform to the norms. I will continue to write hopeful stories about people who fight for what is right, even when that fight is difficult. I will continue to write about women and brown-skinned people and non-Christians and all the different types of people that live in the universe.

And I will continue to teach. I will continue to work with children in the hopes that the discipline and the philosophies of respect and self-improvement that I teach them will turn them into better citizens of the world.

I will continue to be the long-haired hippie weirdo freak writer and karate teacher.

And Wrenn and Dale and I will continue to make our home into a haven for our friends and family and tribe. We will continue to feed people and welcome people and shelter people and provide hospitality to them that need it and them that don't.

It may not be much. But it's what I can do to beat back the darkness. And the alternative is to give in, and fuck that noise.

I will still be me.
