The UNtraining!

My friend Janet is writing a book.  If you are interested in her blog on the book she is writing titled, "Good Little White Girl", check this out:


What unconscious racism does each of us hold?  How does it manifest?  How are we hurt?

This morning I'm with this poem by Hafiz as translated by Daniel Ladinsky.

With That Moon Language

Admit something:

Everyone you see, you say to them,
"Love me."

Of course you do not do this out loud:
Someone would call the cops.

Still, though, think about this,
This great pull in us
To connect.

Why not become the one
Who lives with a full moon in each eye
That is always saying,

With that sweet moon

What every other eye in this world
Is dying to
