Trump’s Military Parade Folly

So many times Donald Trump does something that I disagree with….but I simply scratch my head, curse or wish his time in office was over and we could get back to a sense of American sanity….but I don’t stop and write a blog on it….because I would be writing “Trump complaint blogs” all the time. But today, I have to say something about his crazy childish idea of having a military parade. Now, let me say here at the beginning of this article that I am a staunch supporter of our troops.  I deeply honor those who have given...

Supporting Your Local Newspaper?

Tonight Show host Jimmy Fallon routinely does a bit where he writes “thank you notes” to people and things.  One that sticks in my mind from a few years ago was something along the lines of “thank you, newspaper on the doorstep, for letting me know an old person lives there.” I laughed because I knew that I held that view as well.  Back when Harmony and I used to go for morning walks, I always noted which driveways had newspapers dropped in them….and had made the same assumption that a senior citizen lived there. Why?  I knew that...

Reinventing Myself (again)

It’s early January.  Time for resolutions and changes.  Of course, I’ve mentioned many times before that one can make changes (resolutions) at any time…it is nothing more than the setting of an intention which is hopefully followed by related action.  But, it still is a time to naturally focus on changes….the new year and all of that. So, I am taking this opportunity to “reinvent myself”.  What do I mean by that? To me, such a “reinvention” carries with it broader changes than a few resolutions.  I can resolve to “lose weight”….but the change to see myself as someone...

A Year of Change….a Year of Love

As I write these words, 2017 is coming to a close.  There is always something about the end of a year that calls me to reflect back upon my experience of the past 12 months.  This year it is especially true.  Please bear with me (and stay with me) as I get a bit personal….maybe my introspection here will call you to something similar? Those who received Christmas cards from Mary and I this year got a little extra note….we had always resisted including one of those lengthy letters outlining our family’s past year’s comings and goings, but this...

Dream a Higher Vision for Health Care

This week, Bernie Sanders and a number of other senators introduced a “Medicare for All” bill.  It made somewhat of a media splash when it was introduced….yet most of the articles I read included some commentary that there was little chance that the bill would make much progress through a Republican controlled Congress. [NOTE:  For a quick review of the bill, here is a nice summary from NPR.] To that last point, I would say “so what?”…after all you have to start a higher vision somewhere…should we not hold a higher dream for our country simply because it currently...
