Our friends, Darlene and Downwind Nicole, have started their new life and their new blog, Where the Wind Goes. They're finally living in a van down by the river! Woohoo!
I read Kahlil Gibran to Annie this afternoon, but it didn't go well.
R: Those who give you a serpent when you ask for a fish, may have nothing but serpents to give. It is then generosity on their part.
A: I get that. It's like when some guy goes, Man, can I have a dollar? and you give him a turd.
R: Because that's all you have. It's generosity. I don't have any money, but my pockets are full of turds. Here you go.
A: Turds were buy-one-get-one so I stocked up. You're welcome to have some.
R: Okay, I'm going to start reading again. Let him who wipes his soiled hands with your garment take your garment. He may need it again; surely you would not.
A: Because you just gave him a turd.
