Now that our Japanese tour of duty is over, it is time to change my Friday food treat post routine. In its place I am going to do a “good news” post. In a world where the news is full of reports about conflict, violence and negativity, there is a need for good news stories. Good news on Friday could be a great food for thought heading into the weekend.
You learn to speak by speaking,
to study by studying,
to run by running,
to work by working;
in just the same way,
you learn to love by loving.
~ Anatole France
We’re home. We’re back in familiar territory, enjoying the comforts of home and embracing our former lifestyle. It feels good. Comforting. Reassuring. And yet, there are things we miss – already!
If we could learn to like ourselves, even a little, maybe our cruelties and angers might melt away.
~ John Steinbeck
Those who are free of resentful thoughts surely find peace.
Kindness is the golden chain by which society is bound together.
~ Johann Wolfgang Goethe
