Complex Problems

( blog )

I had a problem with my phone today. It seems to me that many people I know who use Verizon have problems with their phones. That might be my bias, because every time I have had a problem with Verizon it has been painful trying to resolve it, so I don’t like them as a […]

It was with great interest that I watched us engage in a conversation about changes happening in the world, and specifically about a growing awareness of the need for […]

Welcome to the Dancing Star blog

( blog )

I am beginning this blog at the culmination of a series of transitions, starting with a move across country to Tucson, AZ in October 2007, including the sudden death of my mother (in January 2008) after four years with Alzheimers, and, as I write, a drive back across country for the summer to tie up […]
