Cabin life is nice when I can get it, but Marilyn Armstrong's wonky SERENDIPITY sense of reality (SCROLL DOWN) did it again this morning. It brought me to my senses with a chuckle. [caption id="attachment_42647" align="alignleft" width="359"] Author David McCullough at manual typewriter[/caption] Only David McCullough with his manual typewriter is exempt. David does all his writing from his trusty manual typewriter. No word processor cutting, pasting, erasing. I'm no David McCullough! Neither is Marilyn. But only one of us is forthright about the computer addiction. Marilyn and I have never met face-to-face. We became "friends" through the blogosphere. But I did meet David McCullough years ago while hosting him as Moderator of the Westminster Town Hall Forum. Wise. Genuinely self-effacing. Humble. And wise in an "old-fashioned" sort of way. Enjoy Marilyn's lovely post, Gordon

I’m finding it difficult to be hopeful this Christmas. The slow, steady, daily attacks on what I hold dear and what I cherish about my country are eroding my spirit, even the week before Christmas. 527 more words
"Hold to the Good" once again speaks clearly what so many of us are feeling as Christmas nears. Thank you, John Buchanan and Marilynne Robinson. By all means, hold to the good, hold to the light the darkness cannot overcome.
