I was reminded of that truth recently. PanKwake’s dad came up to visit her for Christmas. He brought a car load of stuff that he found at his house…her old toys…and a bunch of my memories. This was among them…

Change Has Come…

If there is anyone who still doubts America is a place where all things are possible…tonight is your answer…

The Day The World Really Changed…

Old newspapers from November 2008 that we had saved. Back then I, Mister Stability, and Mere-Mere worked very hard even from thousands of miles away to make those dreams a reality.

I had already given up on religion as an answer…but back then I still held out hope that politics could bring change. But not four years later…

Then there was 2016/2017…

  • Donald Trump…
  • Brexit…
  • Universal Credits…Teresa May…and the worst Christmas since Scrooge…

But by then my Transcendentalist roots were firmly planted…

A core belief of transcendentalism is in the inherent goodness of people and nature. Adherents believe that society and its institutions have corrupted the purity of the individual, and they have faith that people are at their best when truly “self-reliant” and independent. (Wikipedia)

They grow, flourish, and flower with each passing year. I have found the truth in these words…
