My "mother duty' kicked in during the night. It was planned and the alarm went off to awaken us at 3 so we could get Jonah, second son, off to the airport for the early morning flight out. I am grateful that Bruce is supportive of me in this time of no driving and he willingly takes the driver's seat. It's hard for me to ask him and I try to limit my driving needs, but to get Jonah to the airport was duty and one I rather enjoyed as I kept the conversation going. Jonah was out dancing the night before, so he could talk of his halloween costume...he went as Creativity. He made everyone guess and all the answers were creative so he says they were all right. What a guy! My son. He is headed off to Mexico City as part of the Workers' Union, a nationwide group meeting internationally with Mexican Union FAT ( not said as fat). He was selected for his people skills and his ease in being...so now he is going to Mexico just when the government has taken over the factories, and the workers are out of work. yes, in response to my question...the electric company union is loosely part of FAT. Oh, Jonah are you headed into trouble? The mother worries. Just got Ezra out of Chiapas back to Cameroon and now Jonah heads into workers battle where the military is called out in great numbers and the heads are hot. Sigh! What's a mother to do? I went back to bed at 5:50, snuggling with the driver, and slept rather fitfully.....he still sleeps, I have put on my black tights bedecked with candy corn and my witch's vestments...gotta shake off the spirits trying to haunt me and make this another glorious day!
My new website is up www.maggieneale.com and Bruce has copies of his yurt book For Love of Yurts with his new site up. We have hope. Check them out and help us spread the word.
Happy Halloween all!
