As in, "Isn't it great that we bought bike helmets for the poor kids whose families can't afford them?" Or, "Isn't it great that even kids whose families can't afford other fun stuff --like skiing or boating---can enjoy this nice park we just built?" Or, "Isn't it awesome that we volunteer to grow vegetables for families who can't afford fresh food for their kids?"
|First calf, I'm glad he was born before the storm|
It's like an invisible sword where people don't know they just stabbed the heart of the mom they are chatting with. She is one of those people who can't afford, but she hadn't been thinking of herself that way.
|Still few people, but feels more fragmented and less connected|
She was thinking of herself as a person who was part of community, making a contribution, of equal value.
Bike helmets for all. Parks for all. Gardens for all.
|Heading out for the day's gather upriver|
I want to be on a journey toward change. Which trail will lead me away from division and fear and toward association and sharing?
|You get the ones down low and I'll get the ones up high|
I'm very thankful for all the ways and all the people and all the places and all the times that are helping me find the trail, stay on the trail and have the stamina and hope to get over the ridge and see what is ahead. And that includes my partner of nearly 40 years!
|Happy St Patrick's Day and 39th Anniversary Pard!|
