Motion is not so much forward as it spiraling upward like a staircase.

As Christmas and New Year's approach many of tend to become a bit introspective, reflecting (in no small part thanks to Charles Dickens) on Christmasses past; our past; the choices we have made; and the innumberble "what ifs" concerning other choices.

Each Christmas finds us slightly different--sometimes greatly different--than what we were before.  Sometimes these are merely vocational and situational; those partial identities of "student" or whatever which last only until the next label comes along.

It is the relational changes which are the most unsettling.  We are somebody's grandchild, somebody's child--but what happens when we become separated by death?   That relationship changes drastically, but does not truly end, at least, on our end. 

The Whos down in Whoville got it right:  "Christmas day shall always be, just as long as we have we"....and so long as the memories are cherished we shall have we.

No matter which rung we are standing upon on that ascending spiral staircase.

This was posted by a newbie who not only self-identifies as Russian but has a Russian  (.ru) email address and a Russian IP address.

Full disclosure:  I positively despise Captcha, particularly since my ISP has a rolling (frequently renewing/refreshing) IP address; meaning that I can click all the stupid pictures correctly and still be shut out because my IP address has changed during that time.

It would be SO appropriate if his own words come back to haunt him like they are on this issue and lead to his demise as POTUS.

Not even close, Fred.
This morning I watched a reporter talk to a group of Moore voters.
One said, "A lot of families would be thrilled if their 14 year old daughter caught the eye of a district attorney".

If Trump gets away with this, I don't want to hear any more about  "moral majority" or "family values" bullshit coming from that team.

CNN exclusive: Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand calls on Trump to resign
http://www.cnn.com/2017/12/11/politics/trump-resign-gillibrand-sexual-assault/index.html

I'm not naive, Gilibrand is running for President in 2020.
Still, she has a point.
