Rain at last!
This morning I woke at 6 a.m. to the drumming of hard rains and it felt like Christmas. There was thunder, lightning and a steady downpour, what I grew up to call "a frog strangler."

Yesterday I bumped my way back to real life after spending some time in the misty places with His Holiness. One meeting, lots of phone calls. With local elections in full swing, I am trying to do whatever I can to promote the park on 10th Street Extended (at Portertown Road), greenways and green places.

I sent an e-mail message about a candidate social on Sunday, and am encouraging park supporters to make sure to vote. In the end, that is a precious right we have in this country. I don't think I ever realized just how precious it was until recently.

I have found a new Web site ... ... it has writings, speeches and biography.

My goal is to take up meditation to try to cultivate some inner peace ... seeing what His Holiness has achieved gives me hope. He says that by having "inner values" the outer world and our actions will more likely be compassionate and productive in a positive way. Guess I have my work cut out for me.
