The purpose of Mr. Dickie's Blog is to provide a place where I can post quotations I like and write about things that are on my mind. As of the summer of 2011 I have NetworkedBlogs posting a link to this blog to Facebook.
At the first sign of disease, or at the first word from a doctor that you may be seriously ill, your thoughts and feelings shift. You make a sudden movement into your mortality, which you have probably ignored for years. Life now changes radically. Relationships shift. The things that give meaning are put into perspective. You wonder endlessly. You discover new fears. You try to sort out what is important from what is distracting.
(Thomas Moore, Dark Nights Of The Soul, p. 267)

I have been retired from the U.S. government for many years. I was a long time paying member of AOL until May 2009. Until October 2008 I had a fairly extensive genealogy website on AOL. They dropped support.
