A Thought to Ponder
"To announce that there must be no criticism of the president, or that we are to stand by the president right or wrong, is not only unpatriotic and servile, but is morally treasonable to the American public." -Theodore Roosevelt, 26th US President

About Me I am a partner, parent, poet, and purser. We are building a retreat in the SE Alaska wilderness, slightly off the grid and living in turn with the seasons. I am at sea, working for the Alaska Marine Highway System (http://www.ferryalaska.com), much of the time. Nevertheless, at Care2 I am trying to weave a web of friends whose compassionate response to the universe remains firm against the conservative, anti-planetary hegemony of these times...a web I am able to draw upon for nurture and strength as I travel the North Pacific coastline.

    Cheers to the season when we love to give,

    when we celebrate with friends,

    and have strangers to greet.

    be celebrated throughout the year.

    MERRY CHRISTMAS, my Friend
