Constance, this is a FB page by my friend and brother John Pavlovitz.
I encourage you to read his posts, because he is writes powerfully, compassionately, empathetically and most of all thoughtfully. I think in his writing heart his “knees lack the jerk reflex”!
Let yourself be stretched, challenged a bit. Ya never know…you might find some scaley thing falling from your eyes, maybe even a few big logs dropping away…or even perhaps the disappearance of the compulsion to look into the eyes of others not for their hearts but for the specks you simply “know” are there!!
