Bunny leap frog

Dear President Biden, The other day Laura came home from her walk and asked me if I’d ever seen any of the kajillion wild bunnies in the neighborhood playing with each other. I had to tell her that aside from a little, short-lived chasing, I hadn’t. She then went on to describe the two she …

Karma bits

Dear President Biden, In honor of the beginning of Pride month, I thought I’d share a relevant, personal karma-tale and then highlight an additional relevant, out-in-the-wider-world karma-tale I read about in the WP this morning.

Reality nuggets

Dear President Biden, Lately I’ve been hanging out at work (via Zoom-like platforms) with way more young people than old people. I’m humbled and grateful to say that they’ve become my teachers. So many of them are living out loud and questioning what is and why is it is that what is is the way …
