Loren believed there were no ends in nature, only beginnings. He wanted us to believe that and I've been trying, with limited success. I want to get a bear hug from him. I want to hear him tell me about his new beginning, if there really is such a thing.

But how I wish he were here, especially now, with all the stuff going on in our country and the world. Loren would have been fully engaged in the politics and geopolitics of our time. I'm not quite sure where he would come down, but I'm sure he would rant against the incivility of the rhetoric, the jackels' attacks on President Obama, the anger and hatred being whipped up by extremists, the rising demagoguery. The cult of Trump on the right, the cult of Bernie on the left, along with vicious Hillary bashing in between, to the point this brilliant, compassionate, accomplished woman is unrecognizable.
