Impact

      6 Comments on Impact

My first reaction to this video was of admiration for Jennifer… naturally. She is certainly a girl of indomitable spirit. Although the video speaks only of her victories and the encouragement she received from her family, surely there must have been days, instances, when she would be made to feel incomplete. Not by her family, no, but by others. There… Read more »

Standing On The Inside

      31 Comments on Standing On The Inside

This post evolved out of a post-length comment I inflicted on a beautiful, loving lady that almost all of us have read- and agreed with.

My admiration for Beloo’s  work and wisdom hardly needs reiteration. It is an admiration born one day at a time all… Read more »

Dear Mrs A.,  Hello! How have you been? Good I hope? I suppose you are surprised to receive my letter today. I mean, who writes letters nowadays? I could as easily have picked up the phone to talk to you instead. Communication was never as easy (AND affordable) as it is now. But I didn’t want to say all this… Read more »

But Why Did You Lie?

…because you made it impossible for me to speak the truth. You don’t have the guts to hear it. You are too weak and self-obsessed to to make space for another person. You are too terrified of what it will mean to you personally, how you may have to change the status quo, how you may need to restructure your… Read more »
