Does everything in life need to be controlled?

A ”Fond Farewell” Article

When I changed Support4Change to a new format, I needed to delete some articles that didn’t fit in the new site but were too good to completely throw away. So I have moved many of them here to the blog, where they will still be available and people can find them by using tags. Enjoy.

WHAT IS THIS WORLD COMING TO?

Around Halloween last year I got an email from my sister. She wrote:

Hi siblings —

Jack-o-lantern

Yesterday I set out to buy some bittersweet. My previous supply lasted years, and so I stopped at Windmill Market which used to have such items for sale — not much of that type and no bittersweet.

When I was at Michael’s craft store, I checked their bittersweet, but it was so obviously phony that I didn’t buy it. However — while there – I saw the oddest item.

There was a bin labeled “Carvable Pumpkins” and a woman buying several of them. She was explaining to her children, as we stood in the checkout line, that they could carve faces on them – but no mess with the pumpkins getting soft and squishy in a couple weeks.

Here I thought that part of the deal. Evidently life can be controllable??

Some things just aren’t the same anymore.

— Your sis,

P.S. Today I drove by Groby’s garden store and was able to buy real bittersweet cuttings.
