ECheck out an independent review at List-A-Dayach Wednesday, you'll receive a brief email message describing a situation that will probably be familiar to you, and suggesting some ways for dealing with it that you might not have thought of. The intent is to expand your vocabulary of responses, to make you aware of more choices, so that when you next face a similar situation, you might deal with it a little better than last time. I respect your time — every article is just about 500 words, give or take a few.

Will I start getting more spam?
Absolutely not. I will not release your address to any third party for any purpose, unless you ask me to. I do ask for some information about you in the form below, but it's solely for internal use to help me understand who my subscribers are, where my subscribers come from, and what their interests are. I do not send spam — ever.
How to suggest a topic
If you'd like to suggest a topic, just send it to me by email: rbrenEQuetChPjwYBDxmgner@ChacxXTxBssoFmfDfMugoCanyon.com. If you need anonymity, send your suggestion using the Point Lookout message form, which doesn't require your contact information, and which won't contain your email address unless you provide it.
Why "Point Lookout"?
The Point Lookout Sandstone is the oldest element of the Mesa Verde Group of rocks, which comprise the geology of Chaco Canyon. While the Point Lookout sandstone isn't actually visible in the canyon, it can be seen at Mesa Verde, and it forms the foundation of the geological structures at Chaco. I took its name for my email newsletter because I was looking for something that suggested a longer view — a vantage point from which we can better see where we're going. So when I found that this name was also connected to Chaco Canyon, I knew it had to be. The photo above is a view of Point Lookout, which is crowned with the sandstone that bears its name.
