Becky ~ I see we’re very much in the same place. The words evoke something to be sure, but just how to put it into words is hard. I love the idea of a place where pepole are simply kind to one another. You would hope that would be easy. But since we all do have karmic entanglements :( how can we create a community, a culture if you will, that helps us act in a new way?You keep thinking and I will, too. <3 MahalaTwitter:
