Issue # 1 : Health Care Reform...

You gotta build on what you got. It wasn't "socialism" that brought National
Health Service to France & England: It was World War Two, and the effects upon
the system...population movements (' "Here come the bombs!" ') and the necessity
for fulfilling a need (health services & doctors, working within a War-time society.)

[This is my own thinking upon the matter~~my own words. The facts I'm reflecting
have been curled from my reading of this weeks New Yorker [Jan. 26,2009] & the very
enlightening, informative, article written by Arul Gawande: "Getting There from Here";
page 26. ]

The photograph above is my poor attempt at humor. :)

Once upon a time, a butterfly dreamed of the release and pleasure of true submission... But then life got hard - as life is wont to do - and the butterfly left her respite, her writing space, to face up to things that needed facing.

Whether she wanted to or not.

Now, years on, the butterfly still visits her writing space and thinks of times gone by, of friends gone by, and misses them dearly.

Though she does not regret the choices she made or the life she lives now, she still yearns for the friendships long past.

Then, one day, she decided to travel the paths back to her writing space. she found a message there from someone who seemed to miss her just as much as she missed all that had gone.

And so the woman, still just as sweet though hardened by a few of life's experiences, fluttered toward the hand reached out. When, why... It doesn't matter. All that matters is the soft hello and the reminiscing, however brief, between friends.


i do drop by the old space, though i've long since forgotten how to get in. *hugs*
