Welcome everyone,       So first, in true Townhall confession fashion, I would like to share that this week I learned anew one of those age old lessons on pride and humility. For me this means, I probably shouldn’t go on Facebook bragging about my mad cooking skills — it tends to bring Karma out the next day in the kitchen. My husband and I have been in a meal planning/cooking discovery phase lately. So each...

  We Make The Road Ch. 41     As we walk in the Spirit, we pass through different kinds of terrain. We walk through beautiful valleys where life is full of joy and we feel like dancing.

This post is for my dear friend Mark and his site over at http://www.mygayagenda.org. Several months back Mark sent me the TED Video below. Now, you should know, I am a TED Video sucker. I can watch them for hours, howling with laughter or sitting there like a complete sap with tears running down my face. I love them because so often, its a person getting up on that stage, defying all the odds, and choosing to be really brave and...
