01 Your conflicts are killing you. The typical way we deal with conflicts is killing us. We typically deny them, run from them, escape them, ignore them, pretend they don’t exist, and create conflicts trying to get away from our conflicts. Conflicts multiply that way. Pot and alcohol are making things worse by helping usContinue reading “August 02, 2021”
01 In any situation, there is what needs to be done and what needs not to be done. All we have to do is be right about which is which, and do what needs to be done, without a thought for what is in it for us. Our place is to be what the situationContinue reading “August 01, 2021”
01 We can’t live fifteen minutes without taking sides. Generally, that would mean taking our side against all others. This is the baby screaming to be fed. It’s always something. Wanting this, not wanting that. My Way Now! There must be cultures where this is not the case, perhaps where the baby’s needs are anticipated,Continue reading “July 31, 2021”
01 Get fully vaccinated and wear a mask! It’s like wearing a seat belt. It’s like wearing a shirt and shoes when you go shopping. It’s like not smoking in restaurants and shops, etc. that prohibit smoking. It’s like driving on the right side of the road. It’s like stopping on red and going onContinue reading “July 30, 2021”

NoContinue reading “July 29, 2021”

01 My mule and my cow go with me wherever I go. I thought it would be cute to call my mule “Bessy,” and my cow, “Jake,” but they would have none of it. “I will be Bessy,” said the cow. “And make mine Jake,” said the mule. And that’s how I got Bessy andContinue reading “July 25, 2021”
