Today, my book update includes two postponements and one interruption. The postponements were unfortunate but understandable, and not terribly disruptive. The interruption, however, was unbelievable. It not only robbed us of time, but it revealed something disturbing about the perception of one man. It involved law enforcement. I can’t say for sure, but on its surface, seemed to include racism and racial profiling.
I was disturbed, saddened, and confused for my friend. To the best of my recollection, I’ve never witnessed this. While I am rarely one to jump to conclusions and assume the worst, this may very well have shown the worst in the people involved.
Despite all of this, some solid writing was accomplished, roles were clarified, and a book with a message of respect and unity is well on its way.
Kula (Sanskrit): A community of the heart, a group coming together of its own free will. An intentional community, a family.
As mentioned before, my first book is a collaborative effort. My mind is still racing from our first gathering on Wednesday. It brought me right back to our coffee talks, book discussions, and ongoing mutual respect. They are all so excited about this venture and are happy to be included. So, it’s time to introduce this group, my kula.
I just finished updating three of my pages. Links are below. You can find out everything you ever wanted to know, but were afraid to ask! I’m a busy mama and loving it. Thanks again for following Creative Blog Mom. It’s nice to have you around.
