Of Note: Helen Keller was deaf, blind and a very successful woman. Her trade was inspiration and, in her small way, she helped shape attitudes toward disabled people and women at a time when neither group was afforded many liberties. Keller understood that Life was a contributory affair. It was not a party at which we just showed up and waited to be entertained. I'm sure she'd have none of that. One wonders if the visionary isn't also describing the evolution of consciousness through many lives.
Today's Weather Report: Blustery snow, looks like it will last all day. Unfortunately, I've got an appointment in town and must venture forth but will go slowly to insure I make it to my final destination. With temps in the teens, at least it's not too cold. The spread above was part of the festive holidays with the bread made into stuffed French toast and the pumpkin fudge eaten with guilty satisfaction.
