    What’s the Worst That Can Happen?

    At first I was nervous when the water started rising. “What will I do if the house floods?” I worried. I don’t exactly have the resources to move and this is the cheapest place around. The fact that it was happening 20 years to the day that I was flooded out in 1997 made me nervous as well. Would it…

    Friendship

    One of the best and simplest things we can cultivate is friendship. I’m not talking about the user and losers who use you and lose you – I’m talking about the ones who celebrate with you and pick you up when you fall down. These blogs, like a lot of things online are about friendship. We enter into each other’s…
