My Philosophy I used to have a personal credo, but I've forgotten what it was. I'll work on remembering it. Something along the lines of "I'm OK, You're OK" & whatever Fritz Perls & the Dalai Lama stand for... plus some random comments from Woody Allen & the Scottish Bard Robert Burns.
What Gives Me Hope Random acts of human kindness. My own energy level. My ability to love completely without complete understanding.
If I were Mayor, I'd make the world a better place by Create open universities where everyone can, 1) learn to read, and 2) learn to write.

    Thank you for the green star. I've only been aware of this site for about 24 hours. These things are a bit awkward. (Everyone says the same thing, I'm sure of it.) I've been to Texas; friendly people, good food. I like Austin a lot, and Fort Worth is also nice. Very interesting, Fort Worth. Great museums in Ft. Worth. The old stockyards: wonderful history. American Western history is fascinating. Hope you have a lovely night. Best wishes, Elizabeth
