I no longer consider myself Christian, but that and other faiths still have some pretty good advice. Like this. This is important -> "Peacemaking doesn’t mean passivity. it is the act of interrupting injustice without mirroring injustice, the act of disarming evil...the act of finding a third way that is neither fight nor flight but the careful, arduous pursuit of reconciliation and justice...Peacemaking is about being able to recognize in the face of the oppressed our own faces, and in the hands of the oppressors our own hands...We are to be peacemakers in a world riddled with violence. That means interrupting violence with imagination, on our streets and in our world. Peacemaking...is rooted in the nonviolence of the cross."

— Shane Claiborne and Jonanthan Wilson-Hartgrove

I’ve heard a lot of stupid things in my time. Hell, I’ve probably said more stupid things than a really large number of people who’ve said stupid things, combined with an equally large, or possibly larger, number of people who’ve said stupid things. Don’t…

Hubris is a term that we equate with excessive pride. Not just being boastful. It isn’t regular pride in something you accomplished (I got out of bed today! You bet your butt I’m proud of that). It’s a kind of pathological pride in which you elevate…

I like pina coladas. And walks in the rain. Actually, I'm not really fond of pina coladas. And I prefer the sun. Header image used with permission, courtesy of Svetlana Sewell: http://svetlana-sewell.artistwebsites.com/index.html Deviant Art account http://ssdema.deviantart.com/gallery/
Introduction
What really bothers me about these 'introductory' fields in social networks is that they in no way represent the truly awkward aspects of actually being introduced to someone, or of introducing yourself. So if you could just picture me smiling nervously (I know you might not actually know what I look like; make up the best mental image you can of someone nearing their forties, with a fairly sedentary lifestyle, who wears spectacles and has a bit of a cleft chin) and laughing too loud, that would be grand.

You might want to throw in the obligatory shuffling from foot to foot, and the self-conscious admission that yes, being a writer is cool, and no, I've not published a book yet, but yes, I've been published, and yes, I *am* that sort of editor - the kind who corrects restaurant menus, and no, I haven't a dog, but I have a stupid cat, and yes, I have children (two; they're boys), and that I live in Happy Hollow in the Qu'Appelle Valley in Saskatchewan, and that I work with book publishers.

And then, when there's nothing left to seem interesting enough to talk about, pretend I've just asked you how you are and what you do and whether you have a family and stupid cats. Then, there would be the first Awkward Silence of our acquaintance. 

I'm okay with Awkward Silences, though.

There isn't anyone cooler than me. Sorry, Johnny Depp. It's the truth.
