"If you aren't sad, you aren't paying attention." It's okay to feel. It's okay to feel your broken heart when you look at the suffering of animals, wars, climate change, nuclear weapons, sexual assault. Our world is wonderful, too. It's worth protecting.

"Change will not come if we wait for some other person or if we wait for some other time. We are the ones we've been waiting for. We are the change that we seek." ~ Barack Obama#HBDOBAMA 

"It doesn’t take time to make friends with yourself. It doesn’t take time to be ready. It takes a decision: stop giving yourself short shrift. Step up. Leap. Love." ~ Waylon Lewis Our brand-new course is 50% off during pre-registration only 👉

Dara O’Briain: “...everyone’s opinions are equally valid? My arse. A professor of dentistry for 30 years should not have to argue with some idiot who removes their teeth with string and a door.”

"Arguing w/an idiot is like playing Chess w/a pigeon. You can be the most skilled Chess player ever, but all the pigeon's going to do is knock over the pieces, shit on the board, & strut around like it won."

Nietzsche once wrote, "He who has a why to live can bear almost any how." What is your why?

Writing is for anyone. It's easier in community, when we engage in it naturally, without pretense. It's hard when we don't. It's a form of activism, offering a path toward making friends w/ourselves in this crazy time.

"I am exceptionally lucky to have made it out of #Vietnam . There were many—many—who did not. And perhaps bc I did survive Vietnam, I have always felt compelled to contribute. I'm most proud the #MarineCorps  deemed me worthy of leading other #Marines ." ~ #RobertMueller

“I really, truly did not believe that this was going to happen to me, which was really ignorant,” Ms. Holt said. “Every time this happens, in every interview, they always say that, and I still really thought it wasn’t going to happen.” via @nytimes 

Instead of running away, we work harder. Instead of fighting, we peace harder. Instead of fighting hate with hate, we...love harder.
