I could only think of indirect ways--clean air, clean water, First Amendment rights of free speech, religion and assembly, safe food, safe meds, safe air travel, Interstate highways(!!), radio, labels on food, National Parks and National Forests and Wildlife Refuges, things like that. Oh yes, the US Postal Service. I benefit most directly from that federal serviceI…See More

I am still humbled by the gifts I received.Black History Month inspired my thoughts in new ways that I am going to pursue a while before writing about.I've been on a whirlwind treadmill lately, scampering quite quickly. I hope I can slow down this weekend and work on learning nugguts of knowledge…See More

It pleases me that some people think me strong.Thou Art With Me -- that's the answer I got when seeking God pretty blatantly (though silently).The silent weekend I attended one year ago put me on a better path, and I have followed through fairly well since then. And I need to keep it up.I loved the silence. I wish it could…See More
