Thank you so much! <3

Today, in honor of President's Day, I vow to act like I wish the president would. I will:

-Uplift others around me, congratulate them on things they've done well, and help them up when they fall.

-Take responsibility for my actions, fix my mistakes without blaming others, and do my best to be a team player to achieve goals beyond my own interests.

-Be self-aware and open-minded, admit when I don't know or understand something, and be willing to learn from those who know more than I do.

-Tell the truth, learn the facts, and think before (or at least while) I speak.

-Understand my own power to impact the world and use it wisely--without anger, vengeance, or insecurity--to do so.

Will you join me?

Dear trolls, haters, et al:

Every time you write something hateful, homophobic, racist, misogynistic, or willfully ignorant on my social media, I donate $1/word to the ACLU.

I just made this month's donation in your name. So thank you for your contribution to the ACLU!

Acceptance. Inclusion. Truth.
And 10% of all sales to ACLU Nationwide.

Learning that +James Walls is running a Gods of the Fall RPG game for charity (for Southern Poverty Law Center) tomorrow? Priceless. And at least at the time of this update, he's still looking for a few more players!

I love my neighborhood. This document, signed by community members, is being delivered to residents as a show of support and community unity.

It's costing the community group less than $400 (for printing and delivery) to make sure everyone feels safe and welcome in our neighborhood. Small cost, big results.

The Snow Castle hotel is melting and all of the snow dragons and djinns who work there seem to be under some kind of spell. Can the players help the owner remove the spell and save her hotel?

Let Them Not Say
Jane Hirshfield, 1953

Let them not say: we did not see it.
We saw.

Let them not say: we did not hear it.
We heard.

Let them not say: they did not taste it.
We ate, we trembled.

Let them not say: it was not spoken, not written.
We spoke,
we witnessed with voices and hands.

Let them not say: they did nothing.
We did not-enough.

Let them say, as they must say something:

A kerosene beauty.
It burned.

Let them say we warmed ourselves by it,
read by its light, praised,
and it burned.
