Steve and I went to the Unitarian Church up on Summit yesterday and it was a wonderful service. I felt as if I had come home. The service itself as well as the sermon where phenomenal - perfect - open and compassionate but deep and probing. The sermon was “Bowing to Brokenness” and I was just in 7th heaven listening to it. It was insightful and resonated with me so deeply. The minister spoke about the despair that comes when you feel like there just isn’t enough you can do to help the world -...

I'm really looking forward to the long weekend. S, the puppy, the kitties, and time off! How wonderful.

We just had a group/department lunch from the Olive Garden. I ate too much, but it was sooo good. Its nice to have my big meal be in the middle of the day instead of at the end like usual. I'll eat light tonight and will be in my calorie range.

5. I" am so ...

(Conservative friends - beware the rant ahead. I have to rant, but I want you to take this a collective rant, not a personal one.)

I am at the library right now writing this. I got so angry this morning and am still upset. I found out about an anti-abortion clause written into the omnibus bill the congress/senate are trying to pass and it just made me dispair. I tried to tell Steve about it and he had no response. I know he thinks I'm too invovled, that I let myself get too upset about thes...

I’m going to take a moment to try to analyze my unease. I think its work related. I just do not understand why people get to the positions they get to by being so spectacularly incompetent? Is it because they rely on people like myself who do my job? Are there just enough of people (make that women) like me that incompetent people (make that men) just get to rise to the top? It must be.

This is exactly the type of thinking that I’m supposed to itemize and re-rationalize according to “Fee...
