Unheralded Success July 26, 2010

Today was an unheralded success! 

  1. We tried out a new recipe:  Lemon Bars! which received rave reviews and
  2. We overcame a huge obstacle: No lemonade pitchers! by using up all our  Santa Cruz Organic Lemonade.  I know, we cheated a bit.  Thankfully, the pitchers made it home this evening and tomorrow we'll be back to old schoolin' it with frozen lemonade, just like Mrs. Brady made.
One interaction we had yesterday was with a woman who related the story of her friend in college who collected secrets from prison inmates and sorority girls and then combined them on a bulletin board.  People couldn't identify which secret came from what source.   Are people surprised that sorority girls and prison inmates share some of the same darkest thoughts and fleeting compromised behaviors?  I think it was a brilliant project and the question I'm left with is how is it that some of us can make epic mistakes and turn around to lead productive lives and others never have that chance?  What stops them, who stops them?  The obvious culprits are socioeconomics and luck...but there's so much more to think about, to question.  I think we don't talk about the nature of secrets within the dominant paradigm because we are threatened by admitting to the fallacy of the lines that define us that shame and stigma reinforce.

I have much, MUCH more to say, but I deleted it from this post because we were losing people in less than 2 minutes to my verbosity.  If you want to read what chased other people away, look in the DAILY COMMENTARY DIGEST.

Sorry, dawg. I forgot to add your secret tonight. Did you read my post? Bueller? Bueller?

I guess that buys you one more free bone - or lemonbar (big hit!) - day for you, tomorrow.
