Thanks a bunch! I need to see if I can get a week off next summer to come and volunteer cabin lead or something. Reading this reminds me of how good it was to slow myself down as a staff member, and how hard it can be to do that when you're not surrounded by a real cloud of witnesses to encourage you. Does Micah have a blog?
Isn't this the way it works? You can't really blame the 3rd district for not voting. It takes a lot of work to figure out who the candidates are and what they stand for if they don't come to your neighborhood and aggressively campaign. It is hard enough for an average joe to know who everyone is and who to vote for. But if you are worrying about how you are going to get to work, or how you will find a job, or how to feed your kids, you have more important things to do than go to the library to use their internet and read confusing and contradictory statements about who all the candidates are. And so, as you pointed out, the cycle continues. The politicians see that the poor districts don't vote, don't give money and don't have influence, so they don't try to win their votes. And we keep going.
I'm not sure if I "feel" spiritual when I run, but I believe running is an important spiritual practice for me. Running lets me clear my mind and find some rest.

This was a very well put-together summary of the forum. I wanted to attend but had another engagement. I appreciate that you had positive things to say about most...even the Funk.
