Food For Thought

I don’t seem to fit the sociological assumption that women are society’s nurturers (at least not of late). I’ve spent nearly all of my adult life nurturing. I’m tired of nurturing. My nurturing batteries have run down and can’t be recharged. Nurturing is a cozy and high-sounding word but I wonder how many people understand what it entails.

not so much

At last Wednesday’s Solon City Council meeting, council member Ron Herdliska asked if the burning of yard waste had been a problem.
“Yes,” answered fellow member Brad Kunkel.
“No,” responded residents Sue Ballantyne and Karen Jensen from the audience.
And that just about covers it.
Kunkel has been pushing to ban the burning of yard and garden waste, hoping instead to expand the city’s curbside leaf collection to include tomato vines and dead annuals.
