Spring Waxing Awakening Moon
A writing day. I put in several hours in a row on Liberal II: The Present. I was going to include the future, but in the end it took all I had to finish with the present. The story, the present, is a difficult one to tell to liberal audiences like Groveland UU because the reality is that liberalism is victorious. We live in a modern world that has liberal ideas as commonplace beliefs: individual liberty, equality, the rule of law, government by the people, an openness to change, a market economy. When I finish editing Liberal II, I’ll post it, but the hard to convey message is that more folks are not Unitarian because the worldview we embrace is widely shared. Strange, huh?
I also worked a bit on Latin. During this time Kate got outside and pruned the fruit trees in our young orchard. She’s in charge of pruning and assembling woodenware, so I went out later in the day and complimented her on her work. She did Latin in the morning.
I love these kind of days where a focused task gets completed.
After I finish the first draft of Liberal II, I also took on trying to get my networked computer in the study to share a printer with the other computers, like a nice computer should. It took a while, but I got them all clicking together. Felt like a victory to me.
