Intentions for this blog


To inform, entertain, engage, and raise commitment to personal growth and living by values of compassion, respect, inclusion, and, yes, love.  To illuminate the complex consequences from how we understand and then manifest ourselves in all relationships — with ourselves, all other humans, our social structures, all other species, our planet, in fact with all aspects of life itself.  To do this primarily through story telling with special attention to illuminating often over-looked nuances in the manifestations of these values.  To pursue truth through, among other things, careful consideration of facts underlying the formation of opinions that are rooted in principles and values.  The goal is to help us all make choices that best fit our development into maximum well-being, for ourselves and in a way that allows space for all others to do likewise.
