A Fox in Every Henhouse

Recently, in this season of waiting — that is, between our presidential election last month and the upcoming Presidential Inauguration on A fox in every henhouseJanuary 20, I heard a news reporter on NPR, in a reference to Mr. Trump’s choices for Cabinet secretaries say, “that it’s looking like we’ll have a fox in every henhouse.” And the phrase got me thinking:

Finding sources of Joy and Delight

The results of our recent national elections in the US have left me feeling stunned and shaking my head at what happened. I am in need of finding sources of joy and delight and I need to be finding it fast!
