One person spoke about Shasta Nelson's new book Frientimacy. A friendship includes three things: Fun, Vulnerability, and Consistency.
Now another sends this link: https://www.linkedin.com/pulse/friendship-kindship-debra-oakland
Someone else posts the values of the organization she founded: http://www.heartofleadership.org/values/
And then links to this Brene Brown talk on boundaries: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ecb6ExBaW80&app=desktop
I read about Dogen and his journals. The Buddha-dharma goes beyond good, bad, neutral. Lately, I've been feeling expansion and contraction, and how there is a place beyond that, larger than that, a way to contain both, expansion and contraction, the rising and falling of bird wings, the rising and falling of tides.
I feel soft today, and strong.
It is summer - the sky is blue - the fog at rest - wind chimes chiming - birds singing - and all is warm and warms in my heart.
