2016 has arrived and it comes with an extra day. February 29 will be here before we know it.
This is going to be a very important year for us all on this beautiful planet. It is time for us to make decisions about our future and the future for our children, grandchildren and all our ascendants.
My life started as a world was in two wars and my mother was bicycling into the country to provide our family with bread and vegetables. As she bicycled home she often had to hide in the fields as the American airmen dropped their left over bombs on the roads around Rome. My mother was helping hide the Allied soldiers as my father was building hospitals for the Fascists.
We survived but the wold has not changed for the millions of humans who are still just trying to survive and provide a life for their children.
I sometimes forget about my beginnings as I wallow in my American abundance but there is something deep inside me that needs to be frugal, maybe I still worry about my mother making that journey into the country to find bread and provisions for her family and risking her life to bring us nourishment.
