(I've heard part of it, which was pretty great—thank you—but I do so love the printed word as well.)

There is some good stuff for sure. I've been driving around listening to it quite a bit lately. It has grown on me.

Your compassion is admirable. I try. I can be an angry potato sometimes. But at least I'm not a dick tater. 😇

Thomas, thank you. You seem a very compassionate guy yourself, angry potato or not. :)

Thank you for this, Chris. It helps me situation some of my thinking and feeling about the particular mess our society is in these days.

Here I am again, driven to realizing I don’t know fuck about anything except myself. I just wanna live from my heart these days and disengage my thoughts.

Oh, and, I wanna read the aforementioned poetry.

Thanks for this post, Chris. You always present Truth with openness and transparency.

I fully agree with the need to listen. It's hard. We're so well trained for smug arrogance. It's part of what I seek when i practice silent meditation.

Same. Also, the woman who wrote The Artist's Way, Julia Cameron, has a new book coming out about listening. I know many people who swear by her methods, so who knows.

I'm going to try to be more like you. Wonderful post.

Thank you, Betsy. A good place to start would be to have a pizza takeout place on speed dial.

You're more than alright in my book, Spud.
