Random thoughts...

Ya know, I will be real glad when this election is over. I am tired of all of the politics. I want those in charge to start fixing what is wrong with this country rather than just talk about what they are going to do.

But, actually there is really little anyone can do until all those concerned start living within their means. I include government in this. We all want more than we have. We are constantly tempted by those seductive ads to buy things that we want, not just the things that we need. I admit to being guilty of this as well...

I would really like to live more simply. I don't need a lot. I just want to be comfortable. But, as it is I am barely getting by and soon I will be with out a job. I guess I will have to look at that budget again and see what else I can cut.

I remember the bumper sticker my friends Joni Polig and Sarah Rivers had on their little truck.

"Live simply so that others may simply live."

When I first saw it, I thought perhaps they were speaking about the plight of poor people. But now I see this has much broader meaning. Not just people, but all creatures... Not just others, but me too. Perhaps living simply is a way to be more alive.

All the best to you azsky13!

I started thinking about what I had said in the new IVSCoH (#1)

"Give out what you most want to recieve."

I had been working on my IVG article reading duty... then I thought about how generous it was of you to post my articles on your column... I thought... What's with you Ford??? You have made some very nice new friends on the Vine... Check out their writings... even if their not posted on the IVG.

BTW- I did publish the draft version of IVG 2.0 so you and HMU can read it before I put it into the "founding" document. Have you had a chance to check it out yet?

Well it's the day after the election and I am so glad. Now we can get on with the business of living instead of arguing about politics. Hi Malamuteman!
