Commentary, Personal Opinion

Oh Terri, what a wonderful story of family, rural culture and the missing factors in the present day "life equation". In spite of your suburban upbringing, you are indeed, in heart and soul, a citizen of the Great Wooded South.

Concerning equations, we all learned in school that A+B=C. If one has C on the right side of the equation, one can find values for A and B to rectify the equation. It is obvious from your comments that, A-stable family structure + B-oneness with the Earth ecosystem = C-cognitive assurance that all is right with the world. Contrariwise, most of the present day, personal discontent and cultural dysfunction can be summed up in that, A-broken family structure + B-nature deficit disorder = C-perpetual unhappiness and paranoia. -Billy Joe Fudge
