    Thank you. Sometimes, there truly IS a sense of being the only lit candle in the cave, I assure you.

    Compared to where I live, Nashville is a serpent's den! :)

    But, after a few (3) years this month, I have come to know that there really is a "shadow" community here of passionate, caring, and activist progressives and democrats who are just itching for permission to live out their activist natures upon an unsuspecting, and sometimes even hostile state. It's kind of funny, and kind of sad.

    If only. Yet, today can bring one more. As Caesar Chavez answered when asked what method of activism he used:

    "I talk to one person."

    "Then what?" He was asked.

    "Then I talk to one other person."

    That's how it feels here sometimes. Then, when I'm about to feel the explosion of my brain, I wrangle transport to Nashville, and just get in amongst 'em!

    Just like I do here, it seems! :)
