Starting Again

Well, I want to start by apologizing for not posting since July.

Are you feeling this way? I know I am. Last night, I came across this article on the Charisma Magazine web site and the author, Cindy Jacobs, put it this way: I awakened the other morning with a Spanish word that I wasn’t quite sure what it meant, “basta.” It means enough, fed up, I’ve had all I’m going to take. I felt...
