    Hi there Katsuninken. I found an interesting survey at . Also, the Kinsey Institute has an indepth summary by countries. Check em out, they're cool. Your in Louisville, right? I just read that the Southern Baptist convention was being held there. It might be just where you are at. I was in Lynchburg, VA before moving overseas and it was abit stiff there too. At any rate, I'm not trying to argue or anything but being an American I just wanted to address the broad nature of your blog. When I was a teenager I asked my mom what she did in the 60's and 70's expecting something provocative. My mom gave me a sincere dear in the headlights look and said, "nothing special." Innocence ain't so bad really. :) Peace. Mike

    Thank you for the kind words of encouragement on my blog post. Training ones self to enjoy periods of restfulness - and to make the most of it is hard I think. And to be grateful and humbled is extremely important. Its easy to continually critique that which isnt 'right' or needs to be 'improved' instead of being aware of the present and thankful for it. Being a Shinto in Louisville I'm sure is very difficult. I can't say I would know of anywhere to go- maybe you could try out a local Unitarian Universalist church. They have a pretty wide net from what I've seen here in Cincinnati. And if not - we will both have to just hope this little Social Network will be enough for both of us at present :). Good to meet you - and thanks again for taking the time to read my babbling post.
