    I do try to not go over board or be a total alarmist about the World.
    As a Kansas boy, I do tend to be perhaps too concern about the Ocean and where that comes from could be considered odd for a mid-westerner.

    Another thing that forms my opinions and this maybe a sad statement is that I tend to have a better opinion of animals than I do of humans. I dread the effect this oil will have on my fellow human beings I weep for the effect it will have on the animals.

    Man kind can move out of the way, that is something that can account for how wide spread our species is.
    But the birds, fishes and other animals are often only able to live in certain conditions and not able to adapt well to moving on a moments notice.

    It is something I denounce when my fellow human being acts and thinks that the World is solely here for them. “we are the most intelligent animals on Earth!”. easy enough to conclude when it is we who is making that conclusion.

    We put bathrooms in our house so we do not crap in the living room, it does not make any more sense to crap in the world outside of our living rooms!

    Ah, it’s a beautiful day, I have tons of work to do, so why am I sitting in my office goofing around on the computer?

  3. Hi Prairie Pops!

    I feel worn out. The trip to Boston and meeting all those new people, came home ill (probably worried myself sick) 😉 , and Steven’s sudden death have left me drained.

    I still feel numb and I can’t yet stop thinking I’ll come here and find a thread or a post from Iggy.

    It’s going to take some time…

  4. Thank you who spent yesterday with me! I needed all of you, maybe we all needed each other.

  5. By the way, Will, your status is changed to Editor here. You should see some new clicks — the ability to ‘edit’ each of your posts, at the top of the page you’ll find a gray bar with words like “My Account,” and “My Dashboard.” Click around and if you want, come over sometime and I’ll show you the very little I know (should take all of five minutes to show that).

    “I needed all of you, maybe we all needed each other.”

    We all needed each other, my friend. I know that it was hard for me to come to terms with Steven’s passing and I couldn’t have done it without my friends – both in person and online.

    I am going to do my best to honor Steven’s memory, and thing will be to help keep his blog going.

    Ditto on needing each other yesterday. It was more difficult than I expected, but then, what did I expect?

    Thanks again, Linda for taking such good care of all of us. Like you, I still have my moments of wondering if it’s true, and thinking that surely there has just been some horrible mistake. I think that for a split second, and then, I remember. It’s true.

    I was just honored to be Steven’s friend, as I’m honored to be friends with all my pals here.

    I got an e-mail from a writer’s group I had joined back in 2005 and had almost forgotten about.
    Gee they want something of my writing and it has gotten me thinking about how I am so out of practice!
    Blogging is so different from writing stories and not very good for the writing thought process.

    I had loaded a blank W.P. page then after about three paragraphs I cleared it.
    Juices were not flowing and the one I have been working on when in the mood.
    I intent to submit for cash award so not too good for posting.

    Writing is different then just being wordy which I manage more often then not.
