In the 10th degree.
Working on this bag has been way up there on the pleasure scale. I have learned new techniques and learning tickles my brain anyway.
This rates higher than conquering a Quickbooks dilemma, or a new food recipe.
I keep looking through Lucy's attic to see what else she has to share.
Chandler encourages its residents to shop locally, and I comply by visiting the farmers market on Thursdays.
This area of Chandler has undergone major changes and on Thursdays I feel like I am on Main Street somewhere. I love the small town feeling.
My vegetable purchase, grown locally.
Tamales from the Tamale Store.

It is a March Sunday in Arizona, but it could be a Sunday in 1972 Sunday in Mozambique where the family goes on the not so regular outings to downtown Beira. The stop at the cafe, and the walk through the park.

Abuse of power for the individual is motivated by fear and by the resulting desire to control the power of life. This fear and arrogance are then used to create societies in which structures of domination create special possibilities for the privileged at the expense of shared power for all persons. The power that is intended by God for everyone who lives is used to destroy relationships in exchange for control. Rather than live in insecurity, some persons choose to create structures that dominate and control others for personal gratification and false security.
