Why and When


Why does the electric company tell me I used 6.7 % more electricity this month than last year for the same period? I actually used less—their rate went up.

And why did the window jump it’s track and we couldn’t  get it back correctly? It took a friend to fix the window. Of course the friend works as a HandyWoman, but my mechanical skills are sub-par.

And why did three books I requested all come at the same time?
Why has the weather turned when I still want to play golf?

Why has our country become so divided?
Why is the topic of abortion driving our politics?
Why has civility disappeared?

I am liberal and progressive. When can we sit down and talk about differences without demonizing each other? Until we return to listening without a rebuttal the moment the speaker takes a breath—there’s little hope

                  “There's a lot of difference between listening and hearing.” 
                            G. K. Chesterton
