We are a commune of inquiring, skeptical, politically centrist, capitalist, anglophile, traditionalist New England Yankee humans, humanoids, and animals with many interests beyond and above politics. Each of us has had a high-school education (or GED), but all had ADD so didn't pay attention very well, especially the dogs. Each one of us does "try my best to be just like I am," and none of us enjoys working for others, including for Maggie, from whom we receive neither a nickel nor a dime. Freedom from nags, cranks, government, do-gooders, control-freaks and idiots is all that we ask for.
That is so apt--thank you! So many people in my life are declining in health and mobility but rather than acknowledge and cultivate a sense of awe and wonder--atonement with the Lord--they chase trivial new projects that fill their time and give them a distraction from considering their own mortality. Always traveling!
