Our Bill of Rights. Click the image for a larger version.

I haven’t posted for a while. Sorry about that. It’s been a busy week because our managers set a policy of mandatory overtime on a monthly basis, and I decided to work all of May’s overtime this week to get it out of the way. So I’ve been working like a fiend, but I’ll have the rest of the month to relax.

Tonight I was downtown at an art show (I’ll blog it soon!), and left for awhile to enjoy the glorious evening at the waterfront. I saw this posted on a rock beside the Willamette River. I had a brief thrill of recognizing parts of this simple and articulate document in my daily life. These words turned into laws and customs that have become a way of life for us. These powerful words were created by a few men trying to create a brand new country, and trying to do it “right.” What a profound goal, and what great things have been achieved with these simple beginnings. Our bill of rights. My bill of rights.
