Of Note: Our future relatives will look back on this time as odd and backward. Many of them will scratch their heads at our parochial views and ethnocentric beliefs. On the other hand, we will have been a part of their evolution. Thus, this current phase will have contributed to the move forward that will bring our future kin to a better place. That's how connection works. Because of this, it is often better to watch and love without judging because the overall picture is one of complexity and not easily discernible at close range.
Today's Weather Report: Speaking of odd, the weather today has been just that. It started out this morning snowing big flakes and was very chilly at 32 degrees Fahrenheit. Then the wind started to whip up and the temperature rose to almost 50. The sun even peeped out for a little while. Now it is back to very overcast. Seems that the sun is fighting with the clouds. All the animals are hunkered down in the house, apparently not wanting any part of the battle going on outside.
Watch For Change Snippet: The President is shaking up the world with his "new era of engagement." Apparently, Raul Castro of Cuba was just waiting for the moment when the United States signaled a change toward his country. Within hours of the US dropping some restrictions regarding travel and money, Castro said he was ready to discuss "human rights, freedom of the press, political prisoners--everything." Could it be that this carry-over problem of a different era is ready to be resolved by a progressive administration?
