There’s no doubt that much of the world is in a topsy turvy, free-for-all, running amok kind of spin lately. Like many, I have a strong social conscience that compels me to stay as informed as possible, to participate when I can, and to try to find some equilibrium in daily living in order to save the world – one thought at a time.

Last night I was watching an episode of Grace & Frankie (the Netflix series starring Jane Fonda, Lily Tomlin, Martin Sheen and Sam Waterston). If you haven’t seen it yet, it’s about four older people in relationship to each other in different ways (too long to explain here, but worth checking out).

At any rate, I thought it would be a good idea to take each quarter of the first year and do a little review. Taking a look in the rear view mirror as they say to see how things are shaping up. We can get so caught up in the daily rhythm and rhyme of life that we often fail to appreciate where we’ve been or where we’re going. This is an attempt to do just that.
