(1) the invitation email was from my brother-in-law UU Rev Emeritus Gordon Gibson (I'm U of W Assoc. Prof Emeritus of Math. Robert Moore, an almost-71 yr old Absent-minded Professor, I hope not "early-senile..."). Gordon and his wife (my sister) Judy led our 2008 UU Southern Civil Rights Tour and will be leading the 2009 UU Living Legacy one (now deservedly "full to the gills"[that ain't no fish-tale] in Michellle's [ladies first!] and Barack's Inaugural Year [to what I advocate we rename the "Black and White Together, we HAVE Overcome" House] so slow slugs like me have to wait til 2010 to march along together.
(2) They then led my wife and me on our 2008 Pilgrimage to Knoxville, IJAMS Nature Center, Highlander, Green McAdoo in Clinton, the Appalachian Culture[?}Center, and their TVUU Church, where we met the heroic Usher who was the first to be killed when that suicidal shot-gunman attacked their congregation while the kids were trying to perform "Annie" and about to sing "Tomorrow, Tommorow, we love ya, Tomorrow, ye'r only a Day Away!" that we all sang together the next Sunday in interdenominational Memorial Services throughout the land.
(3)At our Shoreline UU Church, that Sunday, I tried to share 2 verses from Bob Dylan's "Blowin' in the Wind:"
"How many years can a mountain existBefore it's washed to the sea?Yes, 'n' how many years can some people existBefore they're allowed to be free? [UU 2008 SCRTour]Yes, 'n' how many times can a man turn his head,Pretending he just doesn't see? [Obama already sees!]The answer, my friend, is blowin' in the wind,The answer is blowin' in the wind.[then, the punch-lines]How many times must a man look upBefore he can see the sky?Yes, 'n' how many ears must one man have [the shooter]Before he can hear people cry?Yes, 'n' how many deaths will it take till he knowsThat too many people have died? [in TVUUC]The answer, my friend, is blowin' in the wind,The answer is blowin' in the wind."
More IJAMS Tree stuff in my next post -- this is too long already...
