"How they linger..."
It seems we don't honor our parents enough until they have departed.
Of this I am guilty.
I've thought deeply about ancestor worship.
Of it I still do wonder.
A very beautiful poem, skookum; it touched my memory bank!

I loved my father, as though a dog. I remember crawling around on my hands and knees, as a child. Despite all of the abuses he heaped upon me, I still loved him. (He was into mind control using his own children as experiments, guinea pigs, lab rats, Pavlov's dog, etc.)(We were nearly comatose.)
I was there to take his shoes off when he came home from work, dead tired.
I was his dog. I loved him unconditionally. If I growled at him I was punished. But I still loved him, always.
At age 16, one Sunday, it came to a head. I just couldn't put up with it any more. I stood up to him face to face, eye to eye, and I looked him straight in the eye and with the eyes I passed a "laser" encoded message to him. He got it, decoded it, and realized his mistakes with me. His battle for control of my mind was over. Years later, he hugged me and I "felt" that "spark" cross our chests, from his heart to mine, through the clothing!!!
Now my MOM, she was a GODDESS with great wisdom. I helped her with so many chores throughout life that she began calling me "Old Sugar." Ah, When she would wear my favorite dress (Her dress, not mine;) SHE was my Queen! She never knew what that dress meant to me; I never told her.

really got to know my father very well.

Always a reason for every thing that happens to us.
Just like there is always an explanation for a miracle (it's the lack of understanding of the REASON that we call something a miracle)
If we wait upon the Lord (be patient) he will give us our heart's desire.
I must close for a while; I have found a new toy with a great potential.

The pressure for war is mounting. The people are opposed to it, but the Administration seems hell-bent on its way to war. Most of the Jewish interests in the country are behind war.I shall
