A New Year; A New You?

Ritual is good. Ritual helps. The new year's ritual is making resolutions to yourself that you might or might not keep within the next week or month or two. But still, the thought must come before the act and at least the thought heads you in the right direction.

Good Will Toward Men

The Gospels spell it out pretty clearly, "peace on Earth and good will toward men." (These days, of course, we understand that to mean women, too.) That seems to be the standard set, the bedrock from which we are to conduct our affairs. We must, we should, operate with good will toward everyone in everything we do. All the time. In all things.

I love "A Christmas Carol" and "It's a Wonderful Life," both great progressive, humanitarian dramas about "finding your religion" at Christmastime. Both are meaningful and life affirming.

Predicting the Unpredictable in Divorce

Divorce, just like many aspects of our lives, may be highly unpredictable. Who will get primary physical custody of the children? How much child support will the non-custodial parent pay? Will the court grant alimony? How much? And so on. These may be some of the questions that a party to a divorce might have.
