You're welcome.

"The Universe speaks in many languages, but only one voice. It speaks in the language of hope; It speaks in the language of trust; It speaks in the language of strength, and the language of compassion. It is the language of the heart and the language of the soul. But always, it is the same voice. It is the voice of our ancestors, speaking through us, And the voice of our inheritors, waiting to be born. It is the small, still voice that says: We are one. No matter the blood; No matter the skin; No matter the world; No matter the star; We are one. No matter the pain; No matter the darkness; No matter the loss; No matter the fear; We are one. Here, gathered together in common cause. we agree to recognize this singular truth, and this singular rule: That we must be kind to one another, because each voice enriches us and ennobles us, and each voice lost diminishes us. We are the voice of the Universe, the soul of creation, the fire that will light the way to a better future. We are one."

Ha ha, thanks! I use Facebook for my political feeds and it has been an absolutely sh*t-show since the election (from all sides). I love coming over to this site for a break from the craziness, to admire beautiful plants, follow courteous discussions, and get an occasional chuckle. Garden on!
I want to live in a world where the chicken can cross the road without its motives being questioned.

Hilarious! What a sweet, patient little guy!

And, Yup, I do the same thing, Deb. My brother, his daughter, and my cousin have all lost their minds. So much nastiness from all sides. Give me pretty flowers to preserve my sanity! And the company of the lovely, helpful, polite people we find here. This place is a wonderful refuge. Angel
Confidence is that feeling you have right before you do something really stupid.

It certainly is.

From reading both of your signature phrases, I feel a kinship. Woofie, love your statement that some of your relatives have 'all lost their minds' - I feel the same about some of my immediate friends and relatives. So weird when one knows and loves them despite their (to me) quirkiness. Xeramtheum, your listen/silent quote resonates as well. My goal this year is to not post anything derogatory and instead try to engage in rational and courteous discussions. A hard row to hoe as it turns out. But trying.

Thanks Deb - I've always known you were a kindred spirit.

Hmmm, a break from the insanity by talking about people behind their backs. Rolling on the floor laughing

Yup, people on both sides have totally lost their minds on Facebook lately. I've 'had' to log on lately to see if anyone remembered my birthday. Guess now I should go back and issue a blanket-type 'thank you'.

I also go to gardening sites on FB but those are very specific. Much nicer and friendlier here.

Now if I can only learn to be more succinct. Good intentions and all.
