If you purchase this gorgeous elephant ring by Andrea Gutierrez LA

If you purchase this gorgeous elephant ring by Andrea Gutierrez LA, a percentage of each sale will be donated to a foundation dedicated to the preservation + protection of wildlife.
As some of you may have heard: The Trump administration will allow Americans to bring tusks and other elephant body parts back to this country as trophies, in a pivot away from the support President Trump voiced last year for an Obama-era trophy ban. The decision, announced quietly in a March 1 memorandum from the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, withdrew previous rulings on trophy hunting and said the agency would allow sport hunters to receive permits for the trophy items on a “case-by-case basis.” The move contrasts sharply with the position taken by Trump in November. “The Trump administration is trying to keep these crucial trophy import decisions behind closed doors, and that’s totally unacceptable,” Tanya Sanerib, international legal director at the Center for Biological Diversity, told the Associated Press. “Elephants aren’t meant to be trophies, they’re meant to roam free.

My boys asked me what I wanted for Fathers’ Day

My boys asked me what I wanted for Fathers’ Day. I said silence, a class of Pinot Noir, maybe some music.
They laughed. I’m not sure why. I was honest in that moment.
They claimed I needed to watch them dance. By all standards, they lack training, coordination and talent.
But it was still a gift to me. And I’m now having a glass of wine. Best of both worlds.

The other day, a friend told me he has great difficulty communicating in loving ways and in his intimate relationships

The other day, a friend told me he has great difficulty communicating in loving ways and in his intimate relationships. He shuts down quickly.
I asked him why he would expect to have such a skill if it was never developed. I said it’s like asking why do you speak English and not French if that’s the language your family spoke.
You learn to be you by your biology and history. It is years of practice, unintentionally and intentionally, that creates us.
People claim that they need to be healthy before they can have a healthy relationship. That’s an odd belief built upon avoidance—fear.
It is in your relationships that you have and are developing that you practice becoming a new you. I’m not saying it’s going to be easy. I’m not saying relationships won’t end. I’m not saying you’re not going to struggle. It’s in the struggle and the willingness to adjust that you become a better person.
If you are new at navigating healthy ways of being, you should be a novice at it. Seek those that have gone before you. Seek mentors.
I have had many mentors in my life. I’ve copied their ways of being. I’ve watched, I’ve learned, and I’ve ingested aspects of them until it became part of me. And, to my surprise, I sometimes hear them speaking through me in the ways that I think, feel, and act.
And I still have mentors.
You don’t get good at anything in this life without actually doing it, investing in it, assessing your performance, adjusting, and trying again, and again.
It is in rehearsal and practice that you become a new you. Practice sickness and you’ll stay sick. Practice health and you’ll change.

I think most people are confused by what is psychotherapy

I think most people are confused by what is psychotherapy. There are 500 types of psychotherapy out there, maybe more, maybe less. It’s filled with ritual and mystery and outdated myths. It’s a confusing mess.
When people change, it’s always be learning new ways of being. We can call it by different names, but the goal of therapy is change.
That’s why I believe all the therapies out there are doing the same thing, changing constructions of self.
Give it a read and let me know what you think.

I’ve started using Earn

I’ve started using Earn.com for the personal contact form on my website. I get $5 in Bitcoin for each email sent to me but senders only pay if I reply. Unfortunately I’m no longer able to keep up with the inquiries, bad startup pitches, and professions of your love through my website. So this is more of a filter to see how much do you really want/need to contact me. So far made $30 doing this so not so bad.

Larsen was remarkable in approaching the subject of race as a modernist

"Larsen was remarkable in approaching the subject of race as a modernist, rather than drawing on Southern tropes or vernacular to convey her characters’ blackness. Larsen followed “Quicksand” the next year with “Passing,” which tells the story of Irene Redfield and Clare Kendry, two mixed-race women who grew up together and reunite at a Chicago hotel after years of separation. Clare, Irene discovers, has been living as a white woman married to a racist who is none the wiser about his wife’s background. The relationship between the two women flirts with the sensual as each becomes obsessed with the other’s chosen path. In its review of “Passing,” The New York Times noted that “Larsen is quite adroit at tracing the involved processes of a mind that is divided against itself, that fights between the dictates of reason and desire."

LA WOMEN: Please come and support one of the most bad ass women I know, my friend U

LA WOMEN: Please come and support one of the most bad ass women I know, my friend U.S. Senator Kirsten Gillibrand May 31st for a lunchtime conversation (tickets starting at $250).
She is one of the most authentic, purposeful and impactful people we have in the US Senate at this time. Kirsten is leading so courageously every day, and her presence in Washington is a rare remaining example of genuine truth-telling and integrity.
If you can’t be there, I hope you’ll consider a donation. Kirsten has officially refused to take PAC money and is fully relying on grassroots support.
