Where is Peterson?

No worries I have not joined Marvin in Memphis.
Sorry I haven't been around. This week I travelled to Pendle Hill, a Quaker study center, where I led a workshop on identity and then performed Doin' Time in the Homo No Mo Halfway House for folks from high school age to senior citizens. GREAT CROWD and I got to see a bunch of dear Friends and made some new ones. The electricity was out most of the time, so no Internet or lights. I read by candlelight. Very quaint.

Why have I been so silent lately? The reality is that my mother continues to suffer from cancer and seems to decline in her health each week. I am with my parents this weekend and have been most every week for two or three days at a time. (Thanks Roger for the use of your car!) We are a very close family, and she is the center of us all. I simply have not been in the mood to blog or even go on-line much. We all appreciate your prayers and thoughts at this time.
