A Smile on a Rough Day

I got the news today that a family member who was aged and ill died last night. I feel very far from home at these times, and especially far from the people I'd like to comfort, the family member's sibling, especially.

But one of my friends linked this through facebook: Jon Carroll: A Communique from the Unitarian Jihad.

The local Unitarians put together a team to play some sport in a league a couple years ago, and called themselves "The Tolerators."

I'd like to join, if just I can think of a good name for myself. I promise to bring a hot dish.

  1. My condolences to you and your family, Bardiac. I've been through that experience several times over already, and I expect to do so again. Some professional hazards can be real downers.
