"So far Trump is more about potential calamities than actual calamities. He flirts with calamity on a regular basis.  Worst calamities as a category is too difficult to analyze particularly when it comes to comparative persecution. For example,…"

"I never saw an episode of Deadwood.  I'm not sure why.  It might have been because our oldest granddaughter's father was a regular extra in that series.  Of course he got paid whatever they call 'by the hour base'…"

"Exactly so, Rod. Calamity Jane as portrayed by Robin Weigert in the Deadwood tv series was my favorite character. Calamity itself is a dreadful state, preceded by dread itself. That's where I see us now. "

"Rosi, those were close to L's words.  My wife says she doesn't care what previous fiends say about what a nice person she is, or what she says in a speech; what she does is what matters, or doesn't do in this case."

Retirement Life; What's It All About?

Posted on September 18, 2017 at 12:02pm 13 Comments

Last Sunday a couple of other musicians and I worked as a team to present an hour long musical celebration of Peace in advance of International Peace Day, September 21.  The process was stressful for several reasons.  I was away for the three weeks immediately prior to the service, one of the other musicians was away for a couple of the same weeks, and we had one practice together. The other reason is that I don't play well with others. The practice was rough, but we all went home with…

Irma in the Mountains

The last few days have been … I’m not sure of the best adjective.  It could be stressful, or unique, or any of a number of words.

After anticipating Hurricane Irma with a mixture of dread and curiosity we had to leave on the day that the storm was to arrive in our little corner of Georgia. On Monday, L drove in rain…

Rodney, that "Pushback" can be hell. While at Marylhurst many decades ago, I studied Change Agentry, which gave me a systemic appreciation of why all our social agitation work was far more struggle than accomplishment...and always will be ;-)

Rodney, thanks for your invite.  I appreciate your ability to think in terms of the systems and apparatus that we rely upon to function. When its all said and done, it IS the system where our new insights have to be applied. I look forward to learning and sharing. mvn

I just posted and tried to implant a link. Hope I made it work correctly. Ah, scrolling above, I don't think I did. Next time!

As to your question, yes, I spoke at the Eugene/Springfield UU. Twice, in fact. Once on military issues and another time on UU'ism - a two-fold path. What's your association?

Thanks, Rodney....once question, is there a way to contact your friends on here without leaving a public comment?  Lots to get used to ...

There's a party going on with tunes, flicks, and chat here and at Open Salon! Help us build it out of  the ashes which O.S. machinery created with slow loads, etc.? We'd love to have you.

I'm not sure why you arent seeing the 'forgot password' option on sign in.  Try this link:  

http://oursalon.ning.com/main/authorization/signIn?target=http%3A%2F%2Foursalon.ning.com%2F

just below the "sign in" button you should see a link for "i forgot my password"

if the link doesnt appear there, try this one:

http://oursalon.ning.com/main/authorization/requestPasswordReset?previousUrl=http%3A%2F%2Foursalon.ning.com%2Fmain%2Fauthorization%2FsignIn%3Ftarget%3Dhttp%253A%252F%252Foursalon.ning.com%252F

if none of this works, please let me know and i will make inquiries about it.  Also, sorry for the delay in responding.

thanks,

lorianne
