And Now For Something Completely Different ...

You should take a few minutes to read "The Love Experiment" from Whole Living, both because the sentiment is lovely – asking those closest to us, "Please tell me how I can love you better" – and because it is written engagingly.

A favorite moment: "More words of wisdom from Thich Nhat Hanh: 'When you plant lettuce, if it does not grow well, you don't blame the lettuce. You look into the reasons it is not doing well. It may need fertilizer, or more water, or less sun. You never blame the lettuce.' I sometimes blame the lettuce."

"I sometimes blame the lettuce." I adore that sentence.
