Faced With A Next Move

This next major move is from a western Minneapolis suburban region to the central St Paul University Avenue Iris Park region.

Also a move from a series of Presbyterian Homes to a Episcopal Homes Facility.

Letter To Eunice 6/24/19

One of your growing concerns while living at Willmar was the growing Somali population.  You found the Somali people to be so different from midwestern folks.

The clothing and language was  strange to your eyes and ears.  They did not look strangers in the eye. This made you very uncomfortable. Many white people felt that and feel the same way now.

Today there are news stories today about the continuing tension. More on this later.

Letter to Eunice 6-22-19

Did you do much in the outdoors beyond being raised on a farm?  
I know that sports were not for women at that time. However you may have been a free spirit early in life as you came to be later in life.
As I recall we were not much together during free time out in the woods.  Boys were not much trusted with girls alone outside. Farm animals did every thing out in front of children who were curious.
I can imagine your parents cautioning you to steer clear of the boys.

Letters To Eunice 6-21-19

You went off and died a month ago.  I miss you as a child hood play mate and as special letter writer.

Such a candid  writer.  Refreshing!


I can contact you by writing and if you are there you will know what to do about these words.


 The news is much the same.  Your opinions would be much the same.

Blogging After A Stroke

In late September 2018, I experienced a stroke. It did not affect my speech but did affect muscles in my right side. Presently I am in a recovery center being given therapies to recover as much as possible.

One of the  things that is affected in a stroke is the brain's ability to create documents that communicate. Words do not come easily at first, and sentences are hard to construct. This adventure of creating the first post is demanding of a section of the brain that has been injured. This will be brief.

I hope to be writing more blogs. Martha has been working with me on this.

Religion Sacred Days are for Always

Interfaith-calendar.org is available globally on the internet. 

First  put on-line in 1993 this calendar has provided dates for the primary sacred days of most world religions.

The vast amount of information is a limiting factor. 

Keeping all the dates accurate at no cost to clients is a taskmaster of  impossible proportions. Some mistakes will be made.

Used in Africa, Asia, the Americas, Eurasia, Europe, Outer Space, the Calendar helps people to have a sense of unity in knowledge.

Spires of September

Spires of September

Primordial rousing of earth
Happens in historic church yards 
Of midwest American prairies.

Challenging the loam preparing
For a chill rest tonight
Until the round of season moves on.
