The hurricane which is roaring through Louisiana and other states as I write this seems like an appropriate metaphor for our current times. There are so many storms in our world right now CoVid restrictions, rioting, racial issues, political turmoil, conflict with friends, feeling isolated and alone I could go on, but let's get to the more encouraging part. I am drawn t...

Who's Nextdoor?

How well do you really know the people in your neighborhood? Michael posed that question on the blog a couple of weeks ago, and it's been haunting me. I know I've done an awful job of getting to know my neighbors since we've lived in our house. This is not, as Michael noted, an isolated phenomenon. In many of America's communities, the easy familiarity we once had with o...
