I know I have been silent for a while now. My wife was hit by a car while riding her bike on the 22 of July. Her pelvis was fractured in four places. I have been taking care of her since her release from the hospital on August 8th. She is now starting to walk with out her walker. It is good to see her out of her wheel chair. Any way I started writing again. Here is my latest poem.The Illusion of Freedom
There seems to me that AU is growing very fast. I still hope we'll chat some day; we're on the same time zone. I really hope you were not put off by my coming out with the mental health stuff...? (It all started with the introducing myself bit) Actually I'm quite sane now even if I'm a little crazy sometimes (not in any mental disorder way). I'm also wondering if mental health is not a taboo subject, more than atheism ?
Thanks for the group invite, but I'm gonna pass for now. I don't need any reminders about getting older. Lol! Are you gonna start an Atheists who love Halloween group? That time is fast approaching! : )
Where's Jean Marie? I've IMd her but I've never heard back. She love Halloween.
I am an ardent web Atheist follower. I just want to spread the word. I am an open Atheist. Just hate all the injustices in the World where society believes in a religion but there are still millions of children starving and dying every day and nothing seems to get better.
Ithaca is a wonderful place. My sister (and later one of her sons) was a Cornell grad. More recently she lived in Rochester, where she was the Director of the Susan B. Anthony Center at the U. of R. Upstate New York, in general, is a fairly conservative area, but Ithaca is a happening, progressive town for sure.
Thanks, Sydni, but this is old news, you realize. The vote took place on Town Meeting day in March, 2008, when those two bozos were still in office. Vermont is the only state that Bush never visited while he was in office. And Vermont was the first state to declare for Obama in the election with the highest percentage of the popular vote going to him, after Hawaii, I think.
About Rick Perry. I just can't believe it... It shook my conviction that church should be seprated frm politics. I used to believe that believers could not do much harm; this is the proof of the opposite. And notice how he asks money at the end (the god of money...!)
I'm not wishinfg him the best of luck but his downfall; and, it can't be soon enough.
