okay -- a quick few things:
A: i posted this off-the-hip and then had to leave for the day, knowing
some discussion might ensue, but limited in my ability to participate.
B: the gathering tonite was very intimate in Raleigh, however, there
was a great sense of camaraderie and relaxed enjoyment. everyone
breathed a collective sigh of relief as we became human again and began
talking about all that interesting shit in our lives that maybe was
stowed away for a while. thanks to Uzi for putting it all together and
everyone else for showing up.
C: i just got home and have only read this far into this thread, but
already i've gotta say "Thank Heavens for this group!" as folks post
informative and thoughtful stuff about all that we discuss. oh, how
good this is to see/read. and i think everyone seems to really like
Obama -- let us all emulate such good graces.
let the good vibes flow,
