The many ways we help each other
Blogging is a teaching community, a mind opening community. It's my morning routine, drinking tea and reading blogs. I wish I had time to read more blogs, I do. I love the unvarnished, unedited thoughts of my fellow bloggers. I love the global aspect of blogging and am thrilled with blogfellows who live as far away from Washington DC as is possible without leaving the planet. I love being reminded that it's fall equinox as well as spring equinox, that there are places where a person can forget about Easter but remember all the Muslim holidays.
OK I'm gushing this morning but if you read the comments on the post I published yesterday, you'll see why. The intelligence, thoughtfulness, compassion and humanity of the people commenting is such a gift! Wow.
Thank you everyone who commented, everyone who didn't, but who thinks about the why's and what's of life. Because of bloggers and blogging, I'm just a little bit smarter than I used to be, a little bit more compassionate, open minded, and willing to expand and reshape my world view. All of you reading this? Take the friendship award on the left side of this page and pass it on. All of us bloggers help each other so so smuch. Thank you thank you thank you! I mean it.
