I've been reading through hundreds of emails from people who have written me since my column "Why I Won't Vote" came out and of the myriad of feelings I experience reading them--the primary one is humility. I'm honored people feel safe sharing their political journeys with me. I'm honored people trust me with their story in such polarized times. And I'm honored they take the time to tell me their honest truth.

Many of you here in this community do the same thing on a daily basis. It's your posts and emails and comments that keep me going on days when I wonder why I opened my big mouth and stumbled into this space.

Your presence is a gift and when I can step away from the noise, even for a day, the only feeling that remains in a profound sense of gratitude for you all and the space we've created here--where people can be safe to express themselves--something that judging from my emails--is rare in an increasingly hostile world.

Love you all.

Hello new followers, I hope I don’t disappoint you. I want this place to feel like home, where we can escape the Thunderdome and process the world. Where we can post dog pics and recipes and book recommendations. Where we support each other as we get sober, lose weight, embark on new business opportunities, creative endeavors, relationships and travels. I want this to be your oasis of sanity and laughter in an increasingly mad world. A creative outlet where you can share your spirit with us.

We might not have any control over the news cycle—but we can control our habits and attitude. It all starts with us. And hopefully a little piece of that will start here.

I am a member of a neighborhood Buy Nothing group on Facebook. A woman reached out asking if anyone had an aloe plant they could spare. She posted a photo of herself and explained she was going through chemotherapy for breast cancer, and heard that aloe would help for radiation treatments. Not only did dozens of people offer her aloe, but even more offered to go on walks with her, cook her meals, and do any errands she needed. I delivered her reusable gel ice packs to help with the burns.

Yesterday on the subway, a man was begging for money. Another man gave him a $20, said he had been homeless at one point, and that it is possible to turn things around.

There is goodness out there. There is goodness in here.
Sending y'all lots of love and peace. I hope you're finding kindness and warmth wherever you are. 💖

Whatever the verdict is, I’m prayin’ for the whole Pham in the states! I hope y’all stay safe and away from crazed rioters❤️
