You are not required to discuss your lessons or growth process with anyone unless you choose to. (Iyanla Vanzant, Faith in the Valley, p. 168)
When others talk nonsense, I don't question my own thinking. (after Melody Beattie, The Language of Letting Go, 2 June)

- Melva and I took Cyndi to the airport this morning. We arrived at her apartment at 3:45 a.m. We had an exciting ride. As we neared the Beltway exit to her house I passed someone who was driving as if he might be falling asleep. I made the mistake of honking, thinking that was a good idea. It wasn't! The idiot caught up with me on the left and tried to run me off the highway. The highway was wet from rain that had been falling all night long. We we lucky that I was able to pull the van away from him without losing control or contact with the road. It was a very scary few seconds. More and more often we are reminded that Washington, DC is a very dangerous place to live.
