Nice to hear from you, Jason, and to see you and your kin happy together in your family. I have followed through with the journey from when we first corresponded in early 2014.
To Mark Hairball, you suggest that "maybe a trend is developing". I hope not, except in terms of tolerating persons as we and they are. I would hate to see long hair become a fashion, because a lot of it would end up on barbershop floors when the fashion changes. I see long hair as a reward for our asserting our freedom of individual persons, the so-called "nobility of the spirit".
We dream of making progress with those whose functioning consists of following an ideology or "herd instinct". There are still people who believe the earth is flat! We can't do much about them, but we can have the courage to lead our lives according to principles of reason, freedom and spiritual aspiration.
