In Whom Do We Trust?

Posted

        Everything I learned in school is….?   So Thanksgiving.  What the hell really happened there? A friendly get together?  A warm sharing of resources? An exchange filled with suspicion? A tete a tete?  A battle?   Leave it to theatre to open the door to that question. Thank god I’m a […]

Better Angels

Posted

    Me and my better angels took the MAX from Gresham yesterday, and I sat in the single seat. Waaaaay up front. They could barely squeeze in. I disappointed them right off the bat. You can’t really see anyone to trust if you’re sitting in that seat, and how am I going to challenge […]

Another One Rides The Bus

Posted

        I’m leaving my hermetically sealed commute, stepping out of my Honda Insight and onto the MAX train, continuing my experiment in love and kindness. I’m thinking let’s see what happens in 30 days.  As you many know, today is day three. I gravitate to a seat alone, and at this hour, […]

Experiments in Love and Trust
