Dear Readers

I have been unable to find the peace of mind I prefer when preparing posts for the Moose Hill Journal lately. My mind is cluttered with many things, some of them troublesome, some of them pleasant. I’m working through some business- and health-related stuff that keeps my mind from relaxing, but I am also distracted by some nice things.

I’ve been doing a little work on one of my life-long dreams, and while this particular episode does not look like it will get me to my goal, just being able to work on it is pretty exciting in itself. I hope to have more to write about this someday soon.

The other good thing that keeps my mind from wandering to Moose Hill is my son’s cross-country bike ride. He is riding with an organization called Bike and Build in one of six groups of about thirty young people riding across America to raise funds and awareness for affordable housing issues. They stop along the way to work with groups such as Habitat for Humanity building houses, and give presentations at most of their stops to educate their hosts about the need to help create homes for those less fortunate. Please see their web site at www.bikeandbuild.org. David is on the Providence to San Francisco route. It is encouraging to know there are still some kids out there who want to do good things for others.

So, dear readers, thanks for stopping by. Please check back soon. I have a few posts percolating on the back burner and I hope to get them written soon. Until then, enjoy the summer and take time to appreciate the beauty around you.

What a great thing your son is doing. I wish he were biking up to Port Townsend, WA. Roger volunteers for the Habitat for Humanity here.

Good luck with whatever you are working on. It sounds exciting. I hope it turns out well.

It is a terrific thing your son is doing. You must be very proud.

I know what you mean-some times your mind is filled with too much stuff to think clearly.-Hope everything works out for you.

Hey Mojoman,
I'm finally catching up with all of my old blogging buds. I'm sorry to hear that you've got some significant distractions right now. Best wishes for a peaceful heart and good health!

Always a great joy as a parent to watch a child choose the path for his life!
That trip will benefit others, and impact him as well! What a wonderful way to spend a summer!
May your mind find rest.
