JULY 3, 2014

Like a sling shot, my mind has returned to reality after completing the two briefs which had to be filed today.  I spent about three hours after Matt and Brian left Arlington to shuttle one of the briefs to the Court of Appeals in Seattle and Ashley e-filed the other in King County Superior Court alone in my office “recovering”.  Yes, recovering is the right word to use upon completion of such a week long ordeal.

As I stared blankly at my three computer screens and a long list of emails not yet read,  I felt grateful to be part of the lawyers and staff who daily come to work to fight our David and Goliath battle against the banks, servicers, and government sponsored entities.  I realized again how lucky we were to have found one another…  Or, at least, how lucky I was to have found them.  Together, we are learning and growing and becoming better at what we do, which is fighting those who have all the money and still want more.

I spent some time watering the garden tonight.  It has grown from five or six years ago when Jan started growing a few vegetables.  Now there are several beds and a berm which runs along the driveway approaching the house.  It has become an unusually beautiful place and I sense that it is a part of what I am meant to do.

My sixties have turned out better than expected.

I’ve spent this last part of my day reflecting about what I want to write about on my blog tomorrow.  Several ideas have danced across my brain throughout the day.  Earlier I thought I would write about how the federal courts have failed the country in more detail than I have before.  Then I pondered getting more to the root of the problem.  Money has become the substitute for everything; meaning that if you don’t have enough you have nothing.  And then Josh suggested I needed to have an “independence” themed blog for the Fourth of July.

Hopefully, the slumber I am about to begin will help me focus the topics I want to discuss on this American holiday.
