Writer on a Horse
And a Dog

The world looks better from the back of a horse and the roads of life are easier with a good dog beside you.

Size doesn't matter

Have you ever had a problem and your friends didn't understand why you let "such a little thing" bother you. Problems are problems and it doesn't matter had trivial you think it is ... to someone else it might be a mountain. Here's my point, be understanding when a person is talking about something that stopped their writing process, their life, their heart. You might think that boyfriend that just dumped your friend is a jerk but he might be your friend's true love. I'm the world's worst to spat off words that only make problems worst for my friends.... do start trying to figure out who I've made mad... this is just thinking out loud... but I know my faults. Just because you care about a person doesn't give you the right to say something that will hurt them more.

I really do like the golden rule

"Do unto others as you would have them do unto you."

Wouldn't the world be a much better place if we all followed that rule. Of course, people are different too. What wouldn't hurt me... words being like water off a ducks back... might crush someone else.

So I think I'm going to change that rule. "Do unto others better than you would have them do unto you.

Ahhh... that is better.

Don't you just love those big Golden's acting afraid of the kitten. I can just hear one saying to the other... No you touch it... I'm not touching it, you touch it.

I LOVE the new improved Golden Rule. Civility in our world needs a jolt in the right direction.
