What's going on here?

I've made a commitment: to do one good deed per day. Large or small, it doesn't matter. Self-sacrificing or not, extraordinary or mundane, it doesn't matter. Just one thing every day, that's all.

The more I do good, the better I feel about myself. Truly, to benefit others is to benefit yourself. I hope this journal may inspire others who also yearn to do good. So join me on this journey, if you will, and think about the difference you can make in your own life.

Listserv apologies

Email list discussions... it's amazing what can happen sometimes. Somehow one of my comments was misinterpreted, then conflated with something else, and that in turn was conflated with something else... Pretty soon the house was on fire. I considered trying to explain further what I meant, but then I thought better of it. Sometimes, in the name of peace, it's more important to swallow your pride and apologize for whatever may have led to misunderstanding, and leave it at that. The world doesn't always need to know precisely how "innocent" you are.

ONE GOOD DEED: Apologize for contributing to misunderstanding on an email list discussion.
