A rambling train of thoughts about the universe and our micro solar system consisting of our dear Sun and other planets in a magnetic dance while we hurtle through space on the face of a rock and stare at flat screens where we attempt to connect while we detach.

Monkton Chronicles: For the record
I am a Monkton citizen.
For the record, I have tried to participate in town matters
By reading the minutes, responding, writing the selectboard
Many, many times.
Still, all I have ever seen recorded in minutes
Is one excerpt from a letter I sent last year that no one found until I told them it was sent?
For the record, I do not believe in Tax sales or the 8% late penalty, or having a delinquent tax collector.
I believe the town clerk should be able to make what few phone calls need to be made.
I do not believe in annual tax sales.
For the record, I believe town offices should be open all day every day via web based
Real time Information posting.
I believe the town minutes should reflect what was discussed, not “those who were present discussed among themselves”.
I find myself at work again, unable to get to meetings but willing to write my heart out,
