strangers, parents & poison

one Thumper's mom once said "If you can't say anything nice, then say nothing at all." And, at this point in the game, I couldn't agree more. I would even add an amendment that goes something like this: If you find that most of the pearls falling from your lips are wrapped in poison - quit talking. Every little bit of bad energy you spill on the planet leaves a trace. Some people are exceptionally sensitive to these "traces" and the poison you've left spinning about can actually make them sick. Consider your words carefully.


two When you're out in the world making your way from birth to death, you will, on occasion, see a stranger who just needs to tell somebody something. They are generally easy to spot, and you have been given two beautiful ears and two strong shoulders, share them with the lonely and broken-hearted when you know it's the right thing to do. This doesn't mean you have to take them home, but if they are so lonely as to talk to strangers - they must need it pretty bad.


three Be good to your parents. They will never be around as long as you think they might and you will miss them when they are gone. Don't add regret to the mix - be kind to them while they are alive.

My photo

I love raindrops on roses and whatnot, but even more than that I totally dig finding dollars in clothes I haven't worn in ages, live music, social networking and search engine optimization, research, freecycle.com, homemade beer, home grown stuff, writing, talking, laughing, green movements, debate, dialog, dumpster diving, time travel, time-out chairs, psychology, meals that last for hours, pranks, astral projection, meaningful lives, the kindness of strangers, trains, trucks and tractors, cowboys, horses, deer, eagles, random occurrences, modern tragedies, small appliances, good socks and sturdy shoes, shiny objects, painting, playing stringed instruments and singing harmony, pulling perfect feather pillows out of the freezer on hot and humid Kansas summer nights, rodeos and county fairs, brokers, organics and authenticity, my kids, their kids and my huge extended family. I am a hugger and I probably laugh AND talk way too much.
