    For Jordan and Ali - absolutely NOT "useless" anything in any way. Language is the greatest power we possess, which is why we must always use it to do good, and to combat the not-so-good.

    Maura - I've been reading Rumi for years. To me his poetry is almost like reading lyrics from some wonderful song. I know that some of it is subjective to translations. Have ever seen the video Poet of the Heart? I have it somewhere on VHS. I don't know if it is on DVD? It is all inspiring. One of my favorite books is Daily Readings.

    Having been SO many times on both ends of this phenomenon, I can tell you that the intensity of good feeling, while different in nature, is just as great from either side.

    We had a great thing going on for awhile (until the Sunpass) Many would pay the toll for the person behind them. The first time it happened to me it truly made my day. The first time I paid for the person behind me I had that same feeling.

    ...and Maura, it a phenomenon, for sure. RAC is a great feeling that can change the direction of your day.

    You know, Cathy, it occurs to me that your thread especially, and OT in general, is the equivalent of a morning (or anytime, I suppose) chat among friends and neighbors? SO important to so many of us whose lives, for whatever reason, are somewhat isolated. It is that elusive feeling of being a part of something good - and I thank you for your strong example in it.

    Here's my mantra of the day, as I go into an AOS judging session: I have no power over the behavior or thoughts of others, but I am solely in charge of my own. A daunting but inspiring thought...
