On Sunday, we went to the Gasparilla Arts Festival in downtown
Some who read this blog probably think I’m obsessed with politics, but I’m not. I follow politics because I feel a responsibility to be aware of government’s dealings and keep it in check, but at the end of the day I feel a kind of kinship with John Adams, who wrote: “As much as I converse with sages and heroes, they have very little of my love and admiration. I long for rural and domestic scenes, for the warbling of birds and the prattling of my children.”
