Never pass up a chance to sit down or relieve yourself.

After those last two disturbing posts, I thought it was time to focus on the beautiful, the good, the calm.
Calm.com is a great website. I like to put it on when I'm reading or meditating without even going through the free Mindfulness programs, but some of the programs are really good. They have added quite a few new scenarios over the last several months and have some gorgeous scenery. Take a few minutes and give it a try.
We are lucky enough to be living in a country that not only guarantees the freedom to practice religion as we see fit, but also freedom FROM religious zealots who would persecute and prosecute and even physically harm those of us who do not believe as they do ... If you refuse to salute the flag and say God in your pledge, you're actually judged un-American. But that's not the way America is supposed to be. That's the way Iran is ... Predicating patriotism on a citizen's belief in God is as anti-American as judging him on the color of his skin. It is wrong. It is useless. It is unconstitutional.
