...when helping a friend move involves digging up buckets of dirt and moving them, too!
I recently helped a friend to move and we did exactly that. We dug up dirt, put it into buckets and transferred it to her new house. Never in a million years would I have thought of doing that back east! But she was right. Here in New Mexico, you can spend a lot of money enriching the earth to get it bear fruit. You really don't want to leave behind an expensive flower bed only to have to replace it at a new place. (Just this weekend, in fact, I spent $35 on soil!)

So I had breakfast yesterday for breakfast with a handler of the incumbent mayor (election date is Oct. 6th). Thought I'd promote my personal (and communal) issues regarding homelessness. Then I bumped into his opponent who asked me to call him on his cell. Which I did and we discussed homelessness. Then, suddenly, it was an issue at last night's debate. Today it is in the paper and is part of the incumbent's run-for-mayor Web site. Funny, isn't it? If you just keep speaking truth with authentic passion, others pick up on it.
