Hope my … Continue reading Living with our individual authentic value blueprint
This week has been painful for me--and a number of us--as we have watched helplessly events unfold in the US. It has been distressing to watch the protests happening blocks away from my daughter's apartment in Washington, DC--and the unjust actions that preceded them--even as we continue to cope with the far-reaching effects of the … Continue reading Compassion
I was reminded of these sentences from the book ‘Forty Rules of Love’ as I was getting ready to write this post.
