About Susan L Daniels

I am a firm believer that politics are personal, that faith is expressed through action, and that life is something that must be loved and lived authentically--or why bother with any of it?

    I’m thick – don’t get it? The first stanza – yep! The second 😦 Doh!

  8. Hi, Shah–really condensed, so apologize for the brevity, which could lead to confusion. You are far from thick! “sum this am/who does” means quite simply what I see and how I feel totals who I am that reacts to things, who is, who does things. Does that help?

  9. Wondedrful you. 🙂
