Thoughts on Culture Wars & Radical Hospitality
Rather than a pendulum that swings back & forth between left and right, I tend to think of culture as a circle, a wheel that spins.  It seems like we are now in an inversion, the world seems upside down.  So is it better to fight the spin and try to reverse it until it's right side up or add a little extra to continue it around until it's right side up?  

For example if you are against biological men who have transitioned to women competing with biological women in sports.  Should you fight against it or use radical hospitality?  I've wondered if  welcoming men who have transitioned to women competing in the Olympics would be the best way to stop it.  Would everyone seeing some women's hopes and dreams of winning a Olympic medal being crushed live on TV would say "No, Too Far", "maybe we need different categories"?

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.

Began seeing a therapist yesterday. All the emotional crap coming up. Numb today. Today’s mantra will be—

Start where you are. Do what you can. Use what you have.

Wishing all a great day. Love yourselves. 🙏🏼👊🏻💪🏼
