    Great post Rick. It’s All True for sure…here is my take with a forward assist from your post. I gather that you might be from Iowa like my wife Jem. C’est vrai?

      Thanks, Mike! And thanks for the link to your blog.

      In fact, I’m not from Iowa originally, but rather Colorado (by way of New Jersey). Love Iowa, though, and I’ve spent time at New Melleray in Dubuque. One of these days, I hope to get back there for a retreat — or maybe to purchase a coffin! Memento mori and all that.
