WELCOME to my blog, where you can enjoy personal vignettes, track benchmarks of our generation and get a glimpse of what has influenced who we are.  Share my deference made to our antecedents, the Greatest Generation on whose shoulders we’ve stood to make so many once unimaginable accomplishments, despite the frustrating drill of three steps forward versus two backward.  Or, is it two backward, then three forward to respond to the most pressing crisis at hand?  Please also, share my perspectives on our place in the universe, in our global village and our community, where we make history through politics and culture.
