Every night when the moon was full, the air seemed different. It was fall again and the sounds of the forest seemed to be more than crickets and distant hoots of owls. It was not a quiet place when the moon was full.

We waited each fall for this time. It was important to our group. When the full moon came and the air was crisp, we listened. As we moved sleathly in the night, we knew what would be coming. We knew that soon we could be answering a call. It was an eerie sound to…

To Teach a Child to Obey or Teach a Child To Reason

Posted on April 5, 2014 at 11:06am 0 Comments

What is better, to teach children to obey or to teach children to think?

The sorry thing is that too many obey, and too few think. It is better to help a child form by teaching critical thinking so that they understand what and why they might or must obey. It does not prepare them for the future to send them out into the world with a set of rules which they might not be able to apply or that are perhaps flawed.

Is it not better to send them out…

Kevin Baker Died

Posted on February 4, 2014 at 1:45pm 8 Comments

Kevin Baker died last month in Chicago.

Kevin was a young man, 19 years old and attending Harold Washington College in Chicago. Gunman wanted his cell phone. He gave it to them. As the two armed men walked away, one turned around and shot Kevin, in the head. He died. Why? Kevin had family, a reason to succeed in life, a drive to go to college and years of living ahead of him. It was cut short, like so many lives in this country.

Why? What are we all collectively missing here?…

Sheila,I meant to tell you that I took this picture a few years ago in Italy looking toward Cannero island,in the far distanc would be Bellinzona and from there it goes up high into the alps,in this case the Santo Bernardino.

I had just arrived in Italy,around Easter I think,and the mountains were covered with new snow.The flowers in the front are camelia,a few feet away from where I am standing,about 200 to 300 m above the Lago Maggiore.(Cadessino,frazione Cannobbio)
