Air, water, food, shelter, six words

I admit it. Six Words has damn near become a necessary part of my life. Yes, having fun with the flexibility of the English language, but more so, the community interaction. No surprise. Community was critical to early human survival. We hung together. We endured together. (Tragic weather cataclysms are brutal reminders of the importance of TOGETHER.) That's how we got to this here from that there. And if you think times are tough now, think again. Think way back. Very inconvenient truths . . . EVERY DAY.

Different challenges today, of course. Many of them of our own making. Yet, is this also not a truth? To get a life, you have to GET life. Get it? Get it in today's here . . . today's there . . . today's everywhere . . .
