Back and Forth

The Fifth floor of the Boston Anthenaem A good place to work on a rainy Monday Morning. My little desk was surrounded by bound minutes and reports of private men’s clubs in the 19th century.   

Me and Suzie on Main St in Cummington heading down to her mud wallow in the Westfield River  where she delighted in scaring  fishermen. Suzie was minding for once. When she didn’t want to go, she didn’t go. Or she would go in an entirely different direction.

First Parish (lots of history behind THAT name) Unitarian Universalist Church on Meeting House Hill in the Bowdoin Geneva neighborhood of Dorchester.. Very clean freshly painted room, very sweet gentle people on a very hot hot day. eating ice cream at “coffee hour”  under a Dorchester Founded in 1630 Banner.

Hope, Bowdoin Geneva

Hope, Bowdoin Geneva

I still value hope, but I see it as only part of what’s required, a starting point. Think of it as the match but not the tinder or the blaze. To matter, to change the world, you also need devotion and will and you need to act.

Hope is not course of action
