A Prayer of the Real
Flim-flam win crunchiest phrase of the week in my world. I know always it's your writing because it seizes me by the heart. Oh, sincerity... <3
Well, I echo Chuck Ziehr: Nichole and Paul Parsons are among the most sincere people I know.
Looking more broadly, I would say that New York Times columnist, David Brooks has always been my favorite political commentator. Brooks threads the political divide with compassion and sincerity. I look forward to reading his new book, "How To Know A Person." Quoting from the book, "There is one skill that lies at the heart of any healthy person, family, school, community organization, or society: the ability to see someone else deeply and make them feel seen... to make them valued. heard, and understood." Personally, I would add, "Stop talking and listen!"
Nicole and Paul Parsons are two of the most sincere, caring, and thoughtful people I know. I've gotten to know them through Trails for All in Westcliffe, CO--a great group of volunteers and welcoming people.
