January 11, 2019-
With one day left to go, in the second week of 2019, I have learned (or re-learned):
- Youth of capacity are not impressed by kind behaviour or statements of support. They need to see close attention to detail and consistent efforts at empowerment.
- A tight-knit group rises and fall together. I knew this, whilst living in the Boston area, but there has been a lot of fragmentation in my life, since 1976, notwithstanding the tightness of my marriage. Now, we on a professional team will stand as one-which is refreshing.
- Politics clouds good judgement, whilst demanding QUICK judgement, on the part of perceived adversaries.
- I made a commitment to helping clean up National Park properties, this weekend. Some of the parks closest to us are shut tight. Nonetheless, I am being watched, to see whether I keep my word. So, tomorrow afternoon, I will be at Sunset Crater.
