From a Farm in Indiana People ask me where I come from, I say Indiana, and Island of a strange and wonderful culture on Planet Earth.
I truly came from a Unique places on the planet, for the most part; I enjoy the Indiana obligation to say hello to people. When we walk alone towards another person, when we are close, we feel this obligation need or guilt that says, - I better say Hello and break the ice. -
Whether I say hello, nod my head, wink of an eye, or just make eye contact, I feel an obligation to acknowledge other people exist on the planet who are equal, and they deserve the respect of a Hello in the morning.

My Mother sent me this,
Once upon a time in the Kingdom of Heaven God was missing for 6 days. Eventually Michael the archangel found him. Where have you been? God proudly pointed down toward the clouds and said LOOK. Michael said What’s that? It is a planet God said. I have put life on it and I am going to call it earth. It will be a place of great balance. Balance inquired Michael. God explained pointing to different parts of earth. Northern Europe will be a place of great opportunity and wealth and southern Europe is going to be poor. The Middle East will be a hot spot. God continued pointing to different countries. Michael was impressed and he pointed to a large land mass and said, "What's that one?" 'Ah,' God said. "That's Indiana, the most glorious place on earth. There are beautiful lakes. rivers, sunsets and rolling hills. The people from Indiana are going to be modest, intelligent and humorous and they are going to be found traveling the world. They will be extremely sociable, hard working and high achieving, and they will be known throughout the world as diplomats and carriers of peace. ‘Michael gasped in wonder and admiration and said but what about balance God? You said there would be balance. God replied wisely, 'Wait until you see the idiots I'm putting around them in Michigan, Ohio, Illinois and Kentucky! Only someone growing up in Indiana will appreciate this and send it to someone else.
