I am now going to talk about a plan that I and Emily are slowly and steadily working on and I and Russ will see through to the end.

I and Emily are cleaning your minds of stereotypes of people perceived of as stupid. I and the soldiers of communication would like you to move into the camp of believing that I and others like me have some useful things to say.

In a related writing Max Erhmann says you should “listen to others, even the dull and ignorant; they too have their story.” He said that wise thought in 1927 and we will be in 2014 next week. The fact is we very much worsened as a society when we went into the depression. We somewhat improved in the 60s and 70s but the cold war of our hearts is in play all around us now. I always assume the worst so I like what else Max says about humans being overall good.

“You are a child of the universe, no less than the trees and the stars; you have a right to be here.  And whether or not it is clear to you, no doubt the universe is unfolding as it should.”

Oh, dear reader of today, I am wanting to say that I and Emily are unfolding this plan and I will tell you one part of it involves people taking more time to “Go placidly amid the noise and haste, and remember what peace there may be in silence.  As far as possible, without surrender, be on good terms with all persons. Speak your truth quietly and clearly.”

I am delighted to share “Desiderata” with you.

It is wanting a good resurgence again. We found this at the end of the journal of a 25 year old fisherman from 1976. You can find it on line.

On with our work we go and on you go with unfolding gently and please follow some of my best words of advice from 2013.

“Taste the rain and feel the pulse of your easy way of being human.”

It certainly has worked for Emily who using these powerful words found the fisherman many years later doing all the good things mentioned in this writing.
