Dust Falls Down Again

Wooden Bridge Over Wide River at Sunset


Marian We haven’t any rights, you know.
It’s icing, all of it, that the inanimate
behaves itself and that my daughter
makes a life of love and difference
for she was born to be magnificent
defying entropy whereas the dust,
not being sentient, does what it
does swept up by wind and with no
reason to do otherwise falls
down again

Voters in the Omaha Public School District recently elected my daughter (pictured at right) to the school board. If anything was ever deserved, Marian deserved to win this election. She is prepared by education, knowledge, wisdom, experience, compassion, leadership, and a passionate commitment to OPS. She campaigned hard and smart for at least a year. Plus she’s funny and nice to look at and I love her a lot.
