Live Free Or Die….Evolve or Die

We’re all familiar with the New Hampshire motto, very straightforward. With my kids now living/working in the unaffordable greater Boston area, we’ve been looking at southern NH for housing opportunnities….if such opportunities exist. We’re open to any suggestions or leads among readers.

As for the NH motto, we suggest expanding it to EVOLVE OR DIE


  • Global warming/climate change. Need I explain any further?
  • Politics: Dems need to continue to evolve into the “party of the future” with bold policies addressing seemingly intractable problems. I’m channelling the Star Treck line “to boldly go where no man has gone before”. To go to a place where there are no mass shootings, nobody starves or freezes, college costs & prescription costs and hospital costs do not bankrupt you. As for the GOP, they evolve back to a party of fiscal restraint, international restraint & common sense replaces craziness. Imagine that, positive evolution where EVERYBODY wins. Like I said, evolve or die.
  • Personal evolution: Technology advances, you need to do likewise. Relationships evolve….sadly some people pass away, others change (and not for the better), estrangements become inevitable as attitudes, perspectives and philosophies change (some not for the better), relationships need to be re-kindled (where practical) and new relationships need to be ignighted. Watch for more relationship reflections in my upcoming memoir entitled Exit Interview: A Memoir of Family, Friends and Acquaintances. Advice and insights from which we all might benefit.

In sum, without evolution there is devolution.

Live free or die, certainly true.

Evolve or die, certainly needed.

Boomer who is late bloomer to writing. Healthy addictions include Book TV and exercise. Track all things historic, political, cultural, economic and social. Mixture of tough-love. Minimalist who is fiscally conservative and socially progressive. Realist not afraid to see the glass as half empty. However, still willing to consider outside-the-box, long term solutions to seemingly intractable problems. Old enough to appreciate the greater arc of history while remaining young at heart.
