7 things not to do if you are falling in the snow or ice

4 – I ran out of reason. My wrist still hurts.

Apparently my New Year’s resolution was to fall a lot.

At the time, I was writing a lot of comments on articles about fracking as part of the fight against fracking in my home state of New York, our neighbor Pennsylvania, and in the US and around the world. I also would post on Facebook about a range of other topics, including feminism, progressive politics, and (also progressive) Catholicism. I knew I couldn’t contain myself to write about…
