Layered experience

may bring you
peppy true cheer!

I was told how easy I have it, when I was a kid. Even now the complications of living still seem to let me feel I had it easier than my kids . . if nothing else, I got the benefit of timing.
The easiest aspect of these kids' lives is their access to information. When they google something and see all the possibilities will they realise how fragile opinions have become? Decisions must be much harder for them.

conversational art

My enthusiasm is a child-like CARE to share appreciation.
People tell me I need to listen more . . as a basic re-action to the intensity I inspire.
My ability to hear MAY be just as powerful, so I have to believe.*
Explaining limitation is a trap to delay progress.
Justifying balance neutalizes advantage to polarization (through healthy debate.)
Care-ing to listen is a service that should be payed for in trust-development.
I can interview people for their own good, by leading them to new points of view.
Understanding is secondary to entertainment value - playing with concepts.
I show considerations that can be missed (until too late.)
Restorative justice motivates a better community than punitive shame.
Conflict resolution implies contentment found from a situation where no one can be happy. My positive approach is Contentment Counseling.

*Mediation training is a therapy to develop active listening by role-playing exercise


. . worth what you pay for it . .
donation a(credit to choose awareness,
when given to share experiences' value.


Quality of attention is an investment -
to manifest it must be given.
Invested interest yields appreciation.

pooping money?

I validate spending money on the lottery by considering it a pet. I'm just feeding my pet hope. I don't let it get fat (buying too much) by waiting until it is over 26 million, since they award yearly payments, I wait until I'll get a million a year! The numbers are posted in the county section of my paper so it is connected to my community and I would love to be a philanthropist (& art collector.)
I use birthday numbers so sometimes Alex says, "only one dollar?" as he flattens my crumpled entry. If the pot gets tempting I'll add a quik pik (& spend $2.) I try not to indulge in front of my kids but my daughter wants a new kitchen so much she started encouraging me.

fairly advantageous

The problem with seeking advantage is the sacrifice of (healthy) fairness.
