Quote of the day...er...week...umm...hey, look, a quote!!

Tibi gratias agimus quod nihil fumas.

It says "...freedom of...", not "...freedom from...".

"It's amazing to me how many people think that voting to have the government give poor people money is compassion. Helping poor and suffering people is compassion. Voting for our government to use guns to give money to help poor and suffering people is immoral self-righteous bullying laziness. People need to be fed, medicated, educated, clothed, and sheltered, and if we're compassionate we'll help them, but you get no moral credit for forcing other people to do what you think is right. There is great joy in helping people, but no joy in doing it at gunpoint." - Penn Jillette

So Tell Me...

I'm falling behind with blogging. I'm all tangled up with life, sticky, thorny vines wrapped around me so tight it sometimes feels like even breathing is a struggle.

Yesterday, I read this post over at BHJ's blog, and it led me down a line of thought that terminated with these questions: Are you seen? Are you heard? Is there anyone who cares enough to listen to and support your dreams? Tell me...

We are all seen and heard. The problem is that too many of us forget to mention often enough that we've seen and heard. We assume it's a given that people realize that we've seen and heard them. But we've seen and we've heard. We are seen and we are heard.

What Gypsy said. And I miss your blogs, 'specially since I keep clicking on the ads in hopes of you getting some moneh.
I SEE YOU.

What Gypsy said. If I speak, I'm heard. I have mastered being really, really quiet.

I hope the vines loosen their grasp. I miss you and hope you're okay.

Many of us still hear you and worry when we don't!

We do care what happens in your life, but don't wish to intrude. That then puts the process of sharing what you want us to know squarely on your terms, ya know?
