    The party never lasts forever. It always go back to what it was.

    Succinct visual. Sometimes a day, or week, or month comes my way that is very difficult to work through. Even then, I know my world is filled with riches. The relative ease of modern life, clearly depicted in the graph, allows me more time to enjoy those riches. Presently some of my richest moments are found in a few days a week watching over my two year old grandson as he explores every aspect of this world with great curiosity. He is just starting out. I have had six decades of exploring. Observing him provides a sense of wonder over the continuum of life as he starts to create his life story. Observing him encourages personal reflection upon my own story so far.
    Vanderleun, have a good respite. But, please come back to your literary work, “American Digest” when you feel ready. You are a gift of honest reflection and I will miss the lifts to the soul. Thank you.

    Have a great summer, Gerard. This will be a chart of your rest and relaxation, I hope.

    Reformation theology and industry. Clears throat!

    Marx may suck on this.

    Oh! I’m slow on the draw.

    Note: the video which is about 26 seconds long where Bernists are street fighting viciously with each other until they discover they’re all Bernists, and then they break out chanting “Bernie!” or something stupid like that.

    There is a universe available in that few seconds.

    You’ve had a whole lot of Life come at you this last couple of seasons, and you’ve given us all a front row seat. Thank you. Time to rest, reflect, recuperate. Our bookshelves are still missing a volume, but all things in their time.

    Have some joy somewhere. You deserve it.

    I too, as BonafideView said above, ‘know my world is full of riches.’ Every day I am filled with appreciation, wonder, and heartbreak at God’s creation and at the amazing works of Man. Simply awe inspiring. Thanks GVDL, for that fantastic graph.

    And thanks also for so very much rich, edifying writing and links. I cannot even begin to imagine the amount of hard work that this blog requires from you. Your American Digest blog is a huge part of the morning ritual here. Thank you, thank you. You simply cannot know.

    Wishing you well, wishing your heart some measure of healing, as you take your step back. God bless you and yours.

    Relax. I say that even though in the history of Relax, no-one has ever relaxed by being told “Relax”.

    You haven’t said much about the progress on converting your burnt out home back to a domicile. Having been through that myself in the People’s Republic of Massachusetts, I imagine it’s just as torturous in it’s Left Coast counterpart, (“Sorry, we can’t issue an demolition permit. Why? The water meter is Town Property and it’s still attached to the house. We’re very busy, nobody available to go and remove it.”= Seven weeks. )
    And I’ve said this before but it’s crucial, Do Not Hire Your Brother-in-Law for anything!

    Other than that, enjoy the summer.

    “…converting your burnt out home back to a domicile…”

    I know a fairly decent designer. He does it all, site, concept, structurals, mechanicals, interiors, value engineering. Amazing functional layouts focusing on traffic patterns and furniture placements, stunning curb appeal that blends with the environment yet still stands unique, superb resale value – all styles, era’s and/or trends. Those in the business fear him because he undercuts everyone else’s fees and blows them away in performance. Simply, there is no equal anywhere.

    He isn’t married to my sister is he? Sounds like the buildup I got. {grin}
