..and when the sun rises again tomorrow, we'll see how far we've come ...

... just to remind myself why I'm doing this ...

Depending on our personalities, the world can be a crowded place or a very lonely one. For those who seek comfort in numbers, there is no shortage of hangers on, but for those who avoid that circus, keeping thier own counsel can leave them feeling quite alone and disengaged from the mad place we call home. Life is a trade off and most of us choose how we live it.

For me, I'd rather work things out as best I can, using my own thoughts and feelings to sort things out. Following the crowd has never been a temptation to me, but that has its price, one that I'm totally comfortable with every day I get to stand up and be the person I aspire to be.

Recently the Ontario provincial Liberals appeared to be toying with the adoption of some form of Sharia Law, but there's been nothing out in the open since the 'rumour' first surfaced. The laws of the land are a manifestation of that society's underpinnings so a major rework is both unlikely and unwise, yet the Libs tested the water anyway. How does the adoption of a system of laws so diametrically opposite to our current scale of values come under the qualification as an underpinning of our society as into what it has evolved?  Apr. 2011

Update - as of now, nothing more has been heard on this matter ... thankfully!
