I’ll make this quick. I’ve signed on to a project to get 1,000 bloggers to write about compassion and publish the pieces all on the same day. You are invited. The posting date has not been set and I have no idea how long it will take to find the 1K bloggers.

Have a great Saturday, and spend some time in the sun if you’re fortunate enough to have nice weather.
