Missing people

I've been missing some people, and wondering if anyone ever misses me.

In case anyone's interested, I'll post a few random thoughts about the status of my "freedom from estrangement" and "Deeds, Not Words" projects, now that Patty and I have moved to China.

I haven't been on line much, and it may be a few months before I try to do any work on line. When I do go on line, I'd like to spend more time reading and responding to some people's blogs and articles: Karen, Steve, Alison, Priscilla, Baquia and some others. I'd like to read and respond to George's and Gerald's blogs, but I can't access them any more. I'll be looking for some way to subscribe to them or read them using email techniques. I'd like continue dropping in on Fred, Wahid, Susan and Pat on trb now and then.

I'd like to look for people who are practicing and promoting better conduct on the Internet, and encourage and support them. I'd like to interview them about their ideas and experiences, and write about them somewhere on my "Deeds, Not Words" Web site.

I'd like to work more on feeling closer to some people I've been depreciating.

I'd also like to learn more about other people who see their everyday life as an art medium, and other people who are working on improving themselves to improve the world.

One thing I'm doing on line now is trying to use my blogs to help promote fellowship between people in China and the rest of the world.

One thing I might do, off line, to practice freedom from estrangement is to attend the Baha'i foreigners devotions sometimes. I've written more about that in my "Deeds, Not Words" blog.
