High-roaders, the real winners

To all of you who have been taking the high road in conversation over the last half decade, sharing your beliefs based on sound reason and compassion, YOU are the winners in my eyes. You lead by example and show us all how we can do better.

To the many who (like me) take the bait occasionally and have nothing good to show for it -- we're trying. And we'll keep on trying.

To those who believe name-calling, bile-spewing, and violence are the way to go, I offer sincere prayers and hugs. I can only imagine the pain and sorrow that would cause you to behave in such a way.

We're all on this planet together. We're all we've got. Let's find the common ground and build on it. For now, here's a flower bouquet cake xoxoxox

Whatever your stripe

It makes no difference to me what color your stripes. What matters to me is how you treat those of a seemingly "clashing" hue, and especially, those who are polka dot.

At the end of the day, most of us are truly on the same side — the side of humanity. We want peace, prosperity, harmony, health, and to be treated with respect for the very fact we exist.

Arguing and acting out fuels flames at lightning speed. Love always proves the victor, and has the patience to stay the course. There's no one with whom I'd rather go through these trials than you. Thank you for being my friend.

PS - it took me about 10 times longer to colorize this zebra than to write this post! Now we know where my time actually goes.

Just grateful

 I decided to spend the bulk of my day just saying thanks

Gnus makeover

Our gnusletter has been streamlined to provide a better experience for the few who read it. How's that for a glowing endorsement?

I think I may have promised to include a link to the Miss Fisher tea on Nov 8, for which a few spots are still available. Hoping to see you there!

Hold onto your kraken!

 One of the Gnook Gnomes just grabbed Twinkle, intending to put her in a soup!
