And The Sun Came Up

     It's an important weekend for members of the two largest religious groups in the U.S. and if you're among them, appropriate sentiments of the holiday to you.*

     Me, I had a Saturday less productive than I would have preferred.  There's a little work to be done around mid-day but I'm spending the morning with friends.

     And what I wrote yesterday?  I still mean it.  There are no brownie points in treating your fellow-humans poorly.  Not even when they are being rude to you.
  *One of my coworkers, having to work Friday evening, had prepared a Passover dinner earlier and was headed down the hall to a conference room with it as my day ended.  "I was going to rush home for this and rush back, and then I thought, why not have my family come here?"  Seems like a graceful accommodation to me.

Thank you very much for the kind words.

Am I in trouble if I hear you say "I still mean it" with your hands on your hips, a scowl on your face, and you using your "Mom voice"? I may have snickered a little at that despite agreeing unequivocally with the sentiment. :)

Threats of arson arising from the answer to a theoretical question from somebody with an ideological ax to grind--why yes, one can detect a little rudeness in all that.

Drifter, thank you -- and you've caught my tone of voice precisely. :)

It is not often that logic trumps emotion with us humans.

You trump both logic and emotion with kindness.

Truly grace.
