Crowds are not for me. I don’t like navigating through them, don’t like the weird rushed feeling that I get when surrounded by people, and really don’t like the way I always end up moving against their tides.

Looking out for each other: Grief takes a physical toll, as well as an emotional one, on a community
Principal John Belcher sent a message to Mount Si High School students and parents last week, reminding them to, basically, look out for each other over the long weekend. Watch for signs of grief and remember that help is available, both in school and out of it, he advised.
Two years. That was the estimate I heard last week for a new elected official to get up to speed in his or her governing capacity. Yikes, I thought. Another estimate I heard was six to eight months. Yikes again.
This is the time of year that traditionally, in western culture, we pause and reflect. It’s a seasonal time-out; it gave our ancestors a rest from farming, hunting, gathering, and other physical labor in unfriendly weather, and even though most of us don’t really do those things for survival any more, it gives us a much-needed break from the 2015 equivalents.
