Several posts ago, I handed out an assignment : Read The Spoon Theory. Two of my friends did so, and receive an A+ for their efforts in understanding what millions of people with chronic illness live with every day.
After reading about Spoons, one of my beloved friends Marilya has consequently made it her New Year’s resolution to be kinder to people. Her Kindness-o-meter already registers a pretty high number, so I expect to feel the ripple effect of her stepped up activity all the way across the country.
And one of my sangha brothers Chris has demonstrated such a deep understanding of Spoons that I am at a loss for words. So please read his.
What a gift to our world—to have people who would make such an effort to connect to the silent suffering of so many when they could just as easily look the other way.
