116. thank you so much
though I've felt myself to be overly negative and critical--a "thread killer"--it is just "me" to see beyond the surface and know that everything is not right in this country and with our government, and I can't be satisfied with mediocre "compromise" and lack of commitment to those real progressive values.

I bought a house this summer and, because I work at home (as a freelance copy editor for a couple of websites and a university far away), have had very little opportunity to meet anyone in this town. I live in the boondocks of Maine, and most of my family all live on the West Coast. Days and days go by when I don't see another human being, and then it is usually someone I've paid to do some work around here--I never have visitors, since nobody knows me. That "gets to me" every now and then.
I am so fortunate not to have any serious health problems--and what problems I do have pale in comparison to the moving story in the OP (and I don't want to hijack this thread). I need to get involved in some sort of volunteer work, but that is difficult because I never know when my schedule will be clear. Thank you again for your kind words.
