I’m hooked. The PBS special Country Boys, a film following the lives of two teenage boys from Appalachia is fantastic and I’d recommend it to anyone. I can’t really put into words all the thoughts and feelings I had watching this program, but I will say that I did have an overall good feeling about people. We’re all trying to do the same things while we are here, no matter where or when you grew up. We all want to love, be loved, have fun, be fun, learn, teach, grow, and live. I know that things get complicated, and we sometimes think that the means are more important than the end.
What I saw on PBS tonight were a few boys who, despite all the walls in front of them, despite all the obstacles and distraction, they were making it happen for themselves. They were feeling out the world just as I do everyday in search of sharing love, having fun by themselves and with others, learning, teaching, growing-Living. If they can do it, I can too.

Dan,Your courage to share your insight about your feelings is an inspiration to many people. I am amazed how you have touched so many people with your words. Had dinner Saturday night with friends, who told me they follow your blog regularly. They told me that what you had written was guiding to them in their lives. I hope you find as much comfort in it, as you bring to others. I am always thinking of you, and praying for your healing.LoveDad
