    You never cease to amaze me -the breadth and depth of your writing -just absolutely awesome!
    How true those words were when first spoken by Dr. King and how true they are, still, today. The key is to get all factions to finally realize that this is the ONLY way EVER for peace -world-wide -to ever come about.
    Peace, my friend.

    I do Bill Cosby aerobics every morning in the nude, well a ridiculous sweater and legwarmers, but that’s it. I end with a flourish by doing jazz hands and helicoptering my junk

    I always loved the Huxtaables because Bill Cosby has been the most charming man in America since his role in “I Spy,” co-starring with Robert Culp who barely registered on my radar.

    And because I have rarely known a family of any color as warm and genuinely loving as they were. In my fondest dreams, I was a Huxtable, too.

    I love the way you juxtaposed all these diverse elements in this post. Your writing always delights me, Jocelyn.

    I, for one, am particularly thankful to your neighbors for giving you a rich tableaux with which you put Edgar Lee Masters and his Spoon River characters to shame at least twice weekly.
