Fresh Air into the Hallowed Halls

Oh my god! Someone opened a window in the U.S. Senate confines and let in fresh air! It is a small window, and has been shuttered for years. But thanks to Senator Jeff Flake, Dr. Ford, protesters, survivors,  reasonable legislators, and an awareness that our system was on the edge of a national catastrophe, friendship… Continue reading Fresh Air into the Hallowed Halls

U.S. Supreme Court

Bullying Wins Again

Once again we saw a white man bully his way onto our country’s highest court. Yelling, blaming, accusing, crying. The actions of an abuser striking out.

Change for the Better?

San Miguel de Allende is different from any other place I’ve lived. Of course, that can be said about all cities. Through the years I’ve been aware of the energy or heartbeat of towns, even if they are neighbors. Whether it is a subdivision surrounded by a larger metropolitan complex, or a tiny burg separated… Continue reading Change for the Better?
