A wise friend of mine told me a cyberstory this past week via email:
The Rabbi and the Gossip~
The Gossip is told by the Rabbi to take a feather pillow, stand in the center of town and shake it out.
He then tells the Gossip to retrieve every single feather that has scattered far and wide by the wind; an impossible task.
The lesson? Tales of gossip (true or untrue) like the feathers are gone forever once they leave you
and can never be retrieved.
I thought this was a good story so I thought I’d share it.
