After the News--The Darker side

After truly listening to all the discussions decided to delete even the world weary darker side,
return to meditation and to listen, to listen.  For it seems too often in this world the very best are the darker side's victims. Though I cannot say the greed and lack of empathy I see and hear do not create concern.  And there is so much work to do  to protect the sick, the weak and the very air we breath. That dark side born of fear and frustration is meant to give us warning. Perhaps what must be done  to acknowledge the darker side is to teach and learn, teach and learn.


In sadness

    Yes, very dark indeed. I am not positive, but I think Catie's dark prose was of childhood memories. But whether that be true or not, I really enjoyed seeing this one, Linda. Luv, Andrea
