be lamps unto yourselves; work out your own salvation with diligence
I LOVE comments. Please leave some even if they are brief half-formed ideas
that you aren't even sure you really believe. I just love comments.

Dad & Grandma
CNN has projected that Barack Obama will carry the state of Indiana. My grandmother was a precinct committee person who used to send my dad to take Democrats to the polls. I really wish they could have seen this day.
I am a forty something, married to a Montessori teacher and father of two adult children. My professional life has included seven years working in kitchens, eight years working in nuclear power (naval & civilian), and now my true calling as an attorney. Besides studying law, I have a B.A. in physics and in philosophy. I've lived in nine states and visited eight countries.
I am politically liberal. I have volunteered as a legal observer for elections and demonstrations, and part of my practice is political law.
I am theologically liberal. I've served as elder and church moderator. I never had a period when I stopped attending church. I love the struggle to grow my understand of God--which necessarily includes God's creation--as large as I can.
I am blessed and happy.
