Just dropping a note to say Hi.

I've been lurking for a while and have fallen in love with this forum!

It is too quiet here today

Good opportunity to un-lurk.

Welcome.

Just today?

It's seemed pretty quite for several days, but maybe it's just me...

Been busy myself

I have tried to keep things flowing, but have not had the time to "stir things up" in a nice way.

Nasty stirring up is easy, but I do not want that. You tend to catch too much shrapnel.

And the holidays..

Aren't the time to be picking shrapnel out of one's keester!

Bad for the karma

and I have come to be a serious believer in the idea of Karmic Retribution. This is a term I got from a friend/co-worker. It is an expansion of the "What goes around, comes around" idea.

Basically, if you do good, "good" will come back to you. The flip side is also true. What this helped me to do was resist taking action against someone "who deserves it". The idea is that The Universe will catch up with folks like that sooner or later. And if one's faith includes an afterlife, most of them hold one accountable for their acts in life -- think of Jacob Marley in Dickens' "A Christmas Carol"

So here's to Good Karma for all !
