I haven’t posted media here for a while…the time has come. I had a bad night and ran across this. It totally saved my emotional bacon so to speak.

Radical Thought: Practice Kindness

January 26, 2010


It’s been a while since I set a challenge for us…and I do say “us” because when I post these things it’s a public reminder of how I’d LIKE to be…not a presentation of how I am already. Kindness cannot be stored up easily. Kindness is flexibility training for the soul. It must be practiced. […]

dear rush limbaugh I feel I must speak to you Rush, not about you, not with you but to you so I’ve written you this post. I’m certain you get a lot of mail these days regarding your perspectives. I imagine you have always gotten your share of both “love” mail and “hate” mail. I’m […]
