Come sit by the River and Pray…

Good morning, Netizens...

We've had a terribly interesting week this week in Community Comment, what is this, our third week and we're still in the top ten SR blogs, as of yesterday? We've covered a lot of interesting and difficult topics and we're still here, writing our thoughts to one another amicably enough, and relatively free of dissension and contention while the whole world gazes our way.

This picture of the Spokane River is one of my favorites. Note the park bench sitting on the banks facing the river. I have often thought about this place, as I would love to spend a quiet afternoon sitting on that bench in quiet introspection.

Since this is a virtual world into which I call each of you, let us gather by the banks of the river this morning and pray, reflect or simply contemplate whatever it is about this week past that we can improve next week, and be strengthened and enjoy one another's company.

By all means, contribute your thoughts about the beauty of this scene, if not the day itself.
