I have not written in this space in over 5 months. But I was finally moved by events these past few weeks which though not related seem to be signaling the same thing-things seem on the brink of some kind of boiling point or unraveling. From the two incidents in Washington of random violence (including yesterday's bizarre car rampage) to the right-wing's extreme attempts to sabotage the country for ideological gain, to the ultra-security measures seen everywhere anyone steps in New York City. And oh yes, the death of Mr. Walter White of Albuquerque last Sunday evening.
There is a heaviness everwhere and an apprehension. October has never been hotter. It may get hotter still.
