"I was thinking of June Callwood the other day, because of her involvement with Casey House, The Aids patient Hospice' now newly expanded and called a Hospital. What a time the 1980's must have been for those many families struggling with Aids. and still were isolated and condemned. I am grateful for people within and beside the Gay community who showed calm and leadership. Public Health obscured. False morality." Jul 10, 2019 08:18AM

"I am reading this, on the insistence, of a relative who knows me well. It is enlightening to see the small ways you can limit yourself in daily life, and that similarly small efforts to cross those boundaries could make things easier. Hmm. I tried asking a cashier an extra question yesterday. And she answered pleasantly. Of course. I did not have to wait till next time as I normally would have. Did not realize" Jul 10, 2019 08:06AM

Yes, I will be looking for the other three Karen Pirie novels that have been written so far. Out of Bounds by Val McDermid was a good one! I even liked the side revelations about grief and walking at night and still trying to do something useful. See ...more
Pat Mills is on page 415 of 464 of Out of Bounds: Looks like I have found a new author to follow. The Karen Pirie character makes a sympathetic and believable detective. Family secrets make for an interesting take on a cold case investigation. The Scottish perspective gives an interesting to me, take on the circumstances that this detective works with in. Even a couple of new words that I have never heard. A great find I think.

A gem. Any time spent with the wisdom of Doctor Ruth is time well spent. She continues to lead by example. A lovely soul, and an outspoken one as well.

“Choose your battles well. There is no point in launching a fight over some minor matter. Pay your parking tickets, but fight like hell if your land is under threat, if your local farmers' market is being moved or closed, or the open wild land next door is proposed for two hundred condominiums.”
Michael Ableman

Hans Rosling
“People often call me an optimist, because I show them the enormous progress they didn't know about. That makes me angry. I'm not an optimist. That makes me sound naive. I'm a very serious “possibilist”. That’s something I made up. It means someone who neither hopes without reason, nor fears without reason, someone who constantly resists the overdramatic worldview. As a possibilist, I see all this progress, and it fills me with conviction and hope that further progress is possible. This is not optimistic. It is having a clear and reasonable idea about how things are. It is having a worldview that is constructive and useful.”

“Fitting is a luxury rarely given to immigrants, or children of immigrants. We are stuck in emotional purgatory. Home, somehow, is always the last place you left, and never the place you're in.”
Scaachi Koul, One Day We'll All Be Dead and None of This Will Matter

Steven Pinker
“It's natural to think that living things must be the handiwork of a designer. But it was also natural to think that the sun went around the earth. Overcoming naive impressions to figure out how things really work is one of humanity's highest callings.

[Can You Believe in God and Evolution? Time Magazine, August 7, 2005]”

“I was never in danger. Nothing bad can happen to you if you're with your mom. Your mom can stop a bullet from lodging in your heart. She can prop you up when you can't. You mom is your blood and bone before your body even knows how to make any.”
