    I sure hope that the desires of the protestors can prevail. Your life is fascinating, and one that would be wonderful to hear about over coffee or tea. If you are ever in Madison you are most welcome to visit and James and I would love to chat and enjoy your perspectives. Warm weather and we can sit outside on the blue chair…….just something to think about. We can private email and I will give you directions, etc. Just something to think about as we head towards spring.

    thanks.these are troubling and painful times, but that’s how the Freedom is born…I went to college in Ukranian city of Lvov – at the time, in 1988, t’was all the same country, USSR. In a couple of Ukranian cities the police change the allegiance and went to the side of the people, as we speak. They will overcome!
