For the Men Who Still Don’t Get It, written 20 years ago by Carol Diehl.
She wrote a post about the history of this poem that is worth reading.
I have never thought about it in this context
that’s actually really, really creepy.
I once pointed this out to my mother and she just stared at me, in stunned silence for ages.
There will always be a girl who is less sober, less secure, with less friends walking in a darker part of town. I want her safe just as much as I want me safe.
There’s two types of Autumn:
- the bright, colorful, happy autumn with pumpkins, apples, candles, and great food
- the dreary, dark, creepy autumn with overcast and rainy skies, scary forests, cool temperatures, and halloween
And I love them both!
things to remember:
- nerd has a lot of pent-up anger, might pretend you are his dad
- because of the jock’s exposure to jazz music, his attack patterns and movements are a lot less predictable
Lillian Weber, a 99-year-old good Samaritan from Iowa, has spent the last few years sewing a dress a day for the Little Dresses For Africa charity, a Christian organization that distributes dresses to children in need in Africa and elsewhere.
Weber’s goal is to make 1,000 dresses by the time she turns 100 on May 6th. So far, she’s made more than 840. Though she says she could make two a day, she only makes one – but each single dress she makes per day is personalized with careful stitchwork. She hopes that each little girl who receives her dress can take pride in her new garment.

THIS NEED MORE NOTES
This goes for friendships as well.
And that is what it is for me, relief from both: the major and minor anxieties of life.
Love you, Kurt.
