Greetings from the Great Plains of North America, from the watershed
of the Platte River, where its forks open to the high plains and
A lot of words flow through this symposium. Like the river not far
from here, most will flow on by me. But I will drink a little and
that water will nourish me.
Mr. McCellan's Evening News was good, I think, because it was simple.
He asked "So what are we trying to do here?" And he answered "My
goal is to learn to understand the world I live in in a sacred way"
I respectfully propose a way to do this based on a quote whose
attribution I wish I had, but don't. It is this:
"That is sacred on which the people depend."
So, as another thread to this discussion, and perhaps as first steps
toward Mr. McCellan's goal: On what <do> we depend?
