When you are a reader, you often know the back story before the front story even happened. You don’t depend on Tucker Carlson, Sean Hannity, Fox News, and Newsmax for a skewed version of events and history. You even know where Ukraine is, unlike our most recent past president. You just know more things and you can make better choices because you are informed, and by the way, life is more interesting when you are a reader.

I am a Vermonter, been one all my life. That just about tells you all you need to know. I am not much of a follower and like to do my own thinking. I value my family and a quiet existence in a very rural part of Vermont. There is a lot in the world I do not understand. My writing is my attempt to wrap my head around much that is swirling around me. Some time ago gasoline pumps changed to the way they look now. I had stopped to fill my Jeep and I could not get the gas to pump to save my life. I went inside and complained to the attendant. She knew me and said, "Ed, the whole world is changing and if you don't figure out the changes you are going to fall off the earth as it spins around." Well, I am not always successful figuring out the changes, but my writing is my way of working through some of them. I hope you enjoy. View more posts
