Thank you all for reading my blog yesterday and giving me the biggest day of views I have had since I started this project in January.
Here’s a little something about me (because who could ever get tired of knowing more about me), I was raised in a family where we were trained debaters, discussion was an art that we had to study. “Your day was good? why?” We were taught discourse, back up your arguments, give examples, mean what you say, etc. It wasn’t always easy or enjoyable but all four of us were schooled in debate and rhetoric.
Most of my closest friends are democrats. Not just democrats, liberals, progressive liberals, socialists and I will always respect their points of view and know that while they may deeply disagree with me, they respect mine, too. I love the debate. I love the conversation. You will not find me name calling. I truly believe that the internet has the potential to be a global public square for us all to discuss and debate and agree and agree to disagree on the issues of the day.
As many of you have, I have found great friendship and support and laughter here on WordPress. I have been exposed to different lives and cultures and joys and pains and I relish all of it.
I have become friends with people I wouldn’t meet in my life in this corner of Oregon and I am grateful for that everyday. Ask Le Clown. What a gifted and bizarre socialist, sock monkey breast feeding Canuck he is. I adore him. Le Clown and I couldn’t disagree more on matters of public policy but we make each other laugh and appreciate one anothers dedication to our loves, our children, our hopes to make this world a better place.
Trust me, my post yesterday was not anything more than reasons why I will not vote for the re-election of this president. I do not sit in judgement of those who think differently than I do. Tell me more! I will listen to you and I hope you will listen to me.
Love to all of you.
