This is very sobering and so well written. I am embarrassed that these ignorant, hateful people are from Oregon, but there is hate everywhere. Fortunately, there is also incredible goodness and light. Yin and Yang.

Because each had his own individual personality, the reactions and interactions became unique and fascinating. As they grew, they seemed to depart from things that were generically baby gestures, to behaviors that were characteristic of them themselves. They were becoming their own people with personalities.
This was both exciting and daunting for a parent to observe. On the one hand, it was the watch of time and change interceding far too quickly, and at too great a rapid pace. On the other, it was…

Anybody recognize that line? It’s from a Rod Stewart song that has always stuck with me. I first heard the song when I was VERY young (like, in the womb!) and it really made me stop and think. I won’t say the name of the song because I want to see who comments with the right answer first WITHOUT GOOGLING! :-)
I like the puzzlement I felt, and still feel when I hear this line. It reminds me of how a college friend used to shake his head back and forth in the ‘no’ fashion and at the same time say ‘yes’. I like that it confused me and caused me to look further. I still do that every time I hear that line.
She’s cute!! I KNEW that was a show I needed to watch!!
I watched this documentary recently and have to say it inspired me. It’s about Joe Cross. a guy who has chronic health conditions and decides, after trying many other ways to treat it, to try a 60 day juice fast to try to cure it. I don’t know about you, but a week of juice seems like a very long time to me. He was desperate to repair his health and lose weight, so he went on this juice fast (with regular medical supervision). He had been a junk food eater and so this was a major change for him. He decided he wanted to see if the body could heal itself, similar to the way it does when you have a cut.

I admit it. I’m a Gleek. At first, I loved Glee because it was quirky. Then, over time, it shifted to being more of a coming-of-age after school special, but with better music! That isn’t an insult to me because I also liked after school specials. And I have always loved Lea Michele.
I was listening to Lea Michele’s new album (CD? What the hell are they calling them these days?) and the words of one of her songs, Battlefield, stuck out to me, partly because they reflect one of my life philosophies. “What seemed like a good idea has turned into a battlefield.” Now, the ‘battlefield’ part isn’t really an aspect of my philosophy, but the idea that we look back at our mistakes and judge them harshly is. See, I think that we make the best decisions we can with the knowledge and experience we have at any given time. Of course, there are many exceptions for stupidity, and being drunk, and just not caring that we’re making a bad decision. I’m talking about decisions we make with earnestness and serious consideration.
