Thursday, Oct. 30, I visited Shrine Mont (in Orkney Springs VA), the Wolf Gap-Big Scloss area on the W Va line, and the start of the Forts Valley. I made three simple videos to get my “Do Ask, Do Tell Overview” video summary stream work started
The first video (3 min) is my “Video Zero” and is shot in a parking lot at Shrine Mont at Orkney Springs, VA. This was the site of many church retreats for me in the 1960s.
I lay out the idea that, as someone who is “different”, I have to balance self-expression with meeting the needs of others. I say that this inducts to a moral issue that relates to sustainability of a democratic society.
Here, at the mouth of the Forts Valley (near Front Royal, VA) I lay out the idea that “talkativeness” (or “verbosity”) and “servitude” are two concepts to be balanced.
Here, I discuss my first example of “coercion” trying to influence my values.
Many more examples will be provided with time.

Moral debate — zero (the two extra hikers walked into the shot accidentally and then left)
