"Perhaps the sentences I write are the seams that hold me together. Perhaps, that's the real reason I write. Perhaps, in the end, it's the only reason."
– These thoughts, and more, were prompted by my Election Night 2016 experiences. I share them all in my latest newsletter at http://eepurl.com/cn0S25. (Don't miss the December issue – subscribe today at http://eepurl.com/bwsLb1 or on any page of my website, www.markdavidgerson.com)

I prefer not to use my social media platform to whine and complain. But when all attempts to get a problem resolved through normal (and some less than normal channels) fail, there are few other places to turn to...

Need a peer-to-peer cash-transfer app? Avoid CashApp if you feel you might ever need support. There isn't enough space here to detail the nightmare of unresponsiveness/incompetence I've faced from its "support" team. Suffice it to say I will never use the service again.

Bottom line? Only CashApp can authorize the lifting of a bank hold on a cash transfer that they exercised their right to not put through. All it will take is a call to my bank. It's not that they have refused; they have simply ignored all my attempts to get them to do it. That means the funds I planned to use for the security deposit on my new place could be tied up for up to 10 days, until the hold falls away by itself.

By the way, I'm a huge fan of Square, which owns CashApp. But CashApp? It lacks phone support, and its email-based support team is set up so that no one takes ownership of an individual case, leading to fragmented, sometimes contradictory replies, and total inaction. Giant #fail.

On this 4th of July, let us remove our focus from the fear, mean-spiritedness and ugliness that infects too much of this nation and instead fix our eyes, hearts and minds on its potential – our potential – for hope, optimism, compassion and resilience. However challenging the journey, it is those qualities – our qualities – that will restore true greatness. For true greatness, whether it be in an individual or a in nation, always comes from the heart.

"My dream is of a place and time where America will once again be seen as the last great hope of Earth."
- Abraham Lincoln

A New Year's Leap of Faith
If you follow me on Facebook , you will know that I am in the midst of preparing to leave the Southwest (where I have spent most of my time in the US) to move to the Pacific Northwest. As I have done so many times in the past (and have documented in my Acts...

Who knew, when I created the fictional night-seeing character of Fynda in The MoonQuest (www.theqntanatrilogy.com), that there was a real-life counterpart in China: a young boy who has stunned doctors with his ability to see in pitch black darkness!
