I heard an old favorite song again the other day that got me thinking about more than the melody. I listened to Joe South’s words again, for what seemed like the first time. I believe that the Dalai Lama’s teachings on compassion are a big part of who I am.
I am working to blunt my reactionary behavior to build a more even keel. The lyrics bring me to a place of peace and calm that reminds me that we are human and naturally, humans have our share of real and imagined problems.
