This morning Dave drove to the swimming hole. We were the 2nd and 3rd ones in the pool and it got crowded quickly. We swam, the headache that has been dogging me for the last 24-hours dissipated, and we both got into the chilly car with wet hair and gratitude. So much to be thankful … More On the way home
Tuesday evening photo. Looking at this, I keep thinking of one of my favorite sociologists, Tony Campolo and his conversation, “Friday’s here, but Sunday’s coming.” I would like to believe there is merit to this. I think it will be up to us to decide and act in ways that build community – many small … More Tuesday evening photo. It’s Thursday.
December 17, 2020. Yuletide. It’s gonna look a little different this year. Frank is crooning about having yourself a merry little Christmas. Yourself. Merry. Little Christmas.How prescient.

Izzy and I moseyed by the bungalow where the kids grew up, today. It’s for sale and empty so I looked in the backyard and found this nostalgic nugget. Cue the heartsquench of missing them and their families. One thing I noticed that gives me real pride-gratitude: All of the trees and bushes I planted … More Long-term gains
This year has been like going through a terror tunnel in the dark – couched in four years of a wealthy white pussy-grabbing cruel gaslighting buffoon being protected and promoted to president while unabashedly stirring hatred and violence like in “the good old days,” which is a storyline many of us have long been all … More Haunted house or magic tunnel?
I – like many of us – have just witnessed the first debate among two men who want to be named president of the United States in five weeks and a moderator who deserves a quiet walk in the park and a beer. Or a taser. Nobody won. No one American won from that display. … More Oh hell: Thoughts about a country
