On Compassion (and a Giveaway!)

I’ve been thinking a lot about compassion recently. In the words of Anneli Rufus, “If we can have compassion for ourselves, then we are inviting ourselves to have compassion for others.” With Valentine’s Day quickly approaching, the holiday splits us in two; for the heartbroken, the day is sour and depressing, for the committed…well, now’s your chance to… Read More

A Tip for the Best Guacamole
