Hi Randy,

Thanks for your email the other day. Yes, Joseph Campbell was great. It's good to see you blogging again...after some quiet time...and apparent changes. That's life...with its ups and downs, and changes and challenges.

Hi Dianne, Thanks for your comments. I guess we all need lessons in patience....and coming to that understanding does empower us and takes away stress...
