The task or purpose of this blog is to talk about social and political concern to improve understanding, raise compassion, and create new thoughts on how to be alive. Too wide? Well, I did this deliberately as I have an untold curiosity and a varied cluster of friends and did not want to limit the discussion. It is my aim to post almost daily, but surely there will be days when this does not occur. I request all to connect in the discussion; however, I hope this is done with civility and admiration for everybody. I will start with my opening post tomorrow.
