I had this dream.  It was my memorial service, and a friend said, "He was a person of good intention and sincere regret unfairly judged by his actions," and I'm thinking, "Yes!"

Wednesday Whimsy

 There's nothing like someone saying, "You're smarter than that" to make you wonder what other unfounded rumors might be circulating about you.

Thursday Thought

Sunday Sermonette

 What a treasure is a person of true self-esteem, who need not be humored or appeased,

  who does not see disagreement as a personal affront or agreement as a show of weakness, 

 who does not feel threatened by the honest aspirations of others,

         who does not mistake pride for honor, or prejudice for principle, or privilege for merit. 

 With such a person, conversation is possible; compromise is possible, and, dare we hope, even common civility is possible.
