Another perspective I have on having a blog is this: Now that I’m a grandmother, my view of the ‘future’ has stretched. Seven generations seems a little far away, and harder to grasp somehow, but two is very much at hand. And I care. There are some dark looking things on the horizon and I don’t like it…..for them. I may not be around by the time some of this stuff materializes, but they will. So I can take a grandmotherly view of some things and hold a deep desire that all of us humans find ways to be a little bit nicer to one another.
