May is over. That is hard to believe. Who ever it was that pointed out that this time of life is long days and short years hit the nail on the head.
On today's news, I learned that May was record breaking warm for Vermont. I have to say I did not really notice. Also, I learned that the number of people using food stamps has gone up 400%. That did not surprise me since I do the grocery shopping. Still, I find it incredibly sad that so many cannot afford the basic necessities--food, shelter, adequate health care. Our country used to be better than this, I think.
I won't even talk about the dream of future generations (like my grand children) being able to finish a college education, let alone find a job that that education would prepare them to take on.
If there is anything at all to that "attraction theory" stuff, we best get on using it more altruistically. That is my opinion.
So, on a more cheery note--I have been following Linda Reeder and her posts on their trip through Vermont. It is funny how much one can take for granted. I have been concentrating on the pot holes in the road and missing out on the beauty in the mountains. Her pictures have inspired me to make some day trips around my home state this summer. I will still pay some heed to the pot holes, though, for the sake of keeping my car in one piece.
