Political Philosophy: "Let us raise a standard to which the wise and the honest can repair.". -George Washington

Honestly, I'm so distressed about the coursification of our culture and our public discourse, I sometimes just retreat. I am heartened sometimes by the change I note in the tenor of the board posts...sometimes adolescent and course to often, thoughtful and full of integrity...all from the same poster. It fills me with hope somehow that we are all human and that we shift easily and often to what is wise and honest. I pray that this is true in the citizenry at large.

Religious Philosophy: "Nothing is more important than finding God, that is, falling in love in a quite absolute final way. What you are in love with, what seizes your imagination, will affect everything. It will decide what will get you out of bed in the morning, what you will do with your evenings, how you will spend your weekends, what you read, who you know, what breaks your heart, and what amazes you with joy and gratitude. Fall in love, stay in love. And it will decide everything." Pedro Arrupe, S.J.


Musical Favorites: Classical, Jazz, Blues, Cuban, African, Reggae, Zydeco But Pandora is my current drug of choice so I'm having a great time developing new favorites....

Favorite Quote from an ND Coach: "Egotism is the anesthetic that dulls the pain of stupidity." Frank Leahy

Miscellaneous Data: I started reading the board during Ty's last year out of sheer despair. I am a Pastoral Counselor and Marriage and Family Therapist. In the past this board has been quite an addition to my education.
