I'm listening to Dave Egger's book, "What is the What?" on tape. Engrossing and horrifying tale of the war in the Sudan told from the perspective of a 'lost  boy'. Sometimes I sit in the car outside my house so I can finish a chapter. Sometimes I sit in the car in silence. Human cruelty, greed, brutality on one side. Kindness, generosity and compassion on the other.

We're made of all of it.

The anniversary of my brother's death approaches.

Yin and Yang. Always. In every way there will be balance.
Be gentle with yourself, dear Beth, as this anniversary comes.

Thinking of you and your brother. Once upon a time several of the Sudanese lost boys worked in the assisted living house across the street.
