These are friends with whom I feel a deep gratitude and fondness.
I was holding one-week-old Matthew as he slept, and in such peace, let the soft, wonderful warmth of his presence soothe me. My cells sighed a sigh of relief.
I am a person who is wracked with internal moral dilemmas. I dread being in the ethical wrong. Ethical vagueness challenges me. So when something can just feel like it can't in itself be bad, I welcome it. This is a family in which love, partnership, nurture, conversation and good humour flows. It is good. Plain and simple.
This is Leora's rooftop garden. She is a strong and passionate advocate for greening. She is right. Plain and simple. Of course she is right. She is taking her values and passion and trying to build something, to share it. This cannot in itself be a bad thing, and that moral clarity is refreshing. So is her garden.

Point is: There are people that I'm meeting every day who are working tirelessly to actually make the world a better place through creativity, loving action, compassion, and faith. It is refreshing. It is good.
There is so much grief every where you turn, it is uplifiting beyond words to encounter these people doing these things.
Oh, and give someone a hug!
- Back to my more melancholic musings soon!
