    a baby smiled at me
    in our coffee shop
    a kind, happy woman
    handed me a hot dog

    sample at costco
    and I made chicken
    corn and black bean
    soup for friends who

    gathered to talk about
    what would make
    a difference in our town:
    street lights, sidewalks

    in an hour and a half
    we accomplished more
    than anyone in Washington
    and we shared cookies.

    Peace,
    Milton

      How blessed I am to encounter you in person in Wisconsin and Texas. Bless you, dear Milton.

      Think sending cookies to DC is a great idea…
