Without any new blogs from Clothesline, I have been worried about you guys. All I can do is pray.

But sometimes something gives me not only hope but motivation...I am so excited about Al Gore's challenge that electricity be 100% "clean" in 10 years. This we can do! I listened to Horst, Aveda founder this morning on MPR and I got even more excited. Who knew this guy (Horst) was so cool!

Political elections can be won or lost (as we so sadly know) by a shred of paper. This energy challenge is truly a cause that can enlist us all. It requires conservation as well as restoration. Think about it, an entire generation of children (K-8) could be motivated and see results before they finish college. Entrepreneurs and engineers get to focus and make money; the construction industry gets to go back to work.

And if the free market is so dammed efficient, well, then, Dow Chemical will adapt and find new organic compounds to replace out petrochemical dependence.

Enough of my tirade, but there is a petition to sign on MOVEON.org if you are interested.

And you, my fine friend, are dreaming.

That happens when you are asleep. Al Gore will do that to you.

May you and David uncomplicate everything and enjoy your change of pace. You will be missed, but we can handle it.

You are missed and in my thoughts often.
