You could call this a personal creative fiction journal about a world traveler and his evolving life.
He saw the warmth of Americans vanish with the once large friendly middle class. Was there a Camelot, when we thought of ourselves as a good nation?
The powers that be have been holding our country hostage since Reagan took away the power of the unions and Neoconservatives took over the Republican Party!
Will we ever stop our declining ways?

I really rode the bike hard today, amazing how sometimes after a little bit of the magic herb and I felt like I could keep cycling round the oval in the park...
I was realizing that even in a small rural town, the complexion of the town is changing drastically from what it probably was as close as 10 years ago...
soon this country will be predominantly hispanic...
the world is changing drastically
I could become alarmed and overwhelmed with the changes
and worry about the world that Colin will grow up in..
and then I think about just doing things one day at a time
and things will just get better...
I figure that the next 5 years of our lives could be the best
the way my parents travelled with Ron and me all over the world!
my brother, Ron, and I were very lucky
or could I say blessed (??)

its good to be working again, even if its only subbing to get my mind off that my son was taken away by x and selfish xinlaws who want to enjoy his youth in their own dreary life
I get down but then Im invigorated with an autistic student that wins a Rhodes Scholarship and is going to Oxford!
Kelly Fleming remembers the low point of raising her son, Jory.
He was eight years old when he spent an entire morning, afternoon and evening wailing uncontrollably. She still doesn’t know what set off the boy, who has autism and a metabolic disorder.
But the tough times seem more bearable now, at the high point. Last month, Jory, who is 22 with a feeding tube inserted in his stomach and braces on his legs, was awarded a Rhodes Scholarship.
In between came Ms. Fleming’s decision to give up on her own dream of practicing medicine, home schooling Jory, learning to read, a bird named Federer and finally college and a dog named Daisy.
“All children have amazing minds,” Ms. Fleming says. “Their brains…

I have a little time to chat with you today. I hope to do a cut and paste about the above topic that many people throughout the world display symptoms of. They are reluctant to take on the responsibilities of adulthood and I remember reading an essay about the Gilligan Syndrome which is the modern day version. I have been impressed with Johnny Depp's version of James Barrie, the author of Peter Pan, a play about a boy that never grows up. The movie, Finding Neverland, captures the author's feelings about a child who lost his youth dealing with the death of his father. He made the play with a way to reach the childhood fantasy of this sad young boy.
I think about Johnny Depp's impression of James Barrie as a funny man enjoying the company of children more than adults. Julie Christie does a good version of the the grandmother of these children. I feel that I can empathize with his feelings by enjoying hanging out with young folks often more than adults that have squelched the…
