Minor victories and discoveries [Jul. 4th, 2009|12:16 pm]
John
I think the Hearthware iRoast 2 is a much better roaster than the Nesco. Further bulletins as warranted.

I also realize that I no longer have to ponder if this happy moment will be damaged by a bully coming into my journal and challenging me on whether I care enough about helping others - e.g., suggesting that I could be spending the money on feeding the hungry instead.

It is possible to learn that one deserves fair treatment from others, and not be forced to endure nastiness to keep the peace.

As penance, you must energize the decaffeinated....

(sorry, couldn't resist...) :-)

People would come into your journal and do such things?

Only after telling me that I represented everything wrong with American consumerist society :-).

Don't ask me why I didn't recognize this person as a bully at that very moment; I'm not entirely sure I understand it myself. Too much need for approval, too much desire to keep the peace.

Interestingly, at solstice, my spirit journey told me that I needed less of that in my life; I didn't realize just how predictive that journey would be :-).

One, I'm sorry.

Two, that sounds like a most productive journey. Very, very timely message I'd say. :)
