  1. Hi there – good start, and congrats on your award(s). I liked your post on hands. It was a wonderful photograph. I have often used the example of it taking 2 hands to clap. Everything in life is interconnected, just like when you bow to the mirror, the mirror always bows back. That is a Buddhist term, meaning that the life condition you have, High or low, when showing respect, or disrepect, to someone else – will back at you. The mirror of your life condition will be met by his.

    I have just gotten started on the blogging 201 assignments. I did 101 already knowing so much already because I have been blogging for over a year. My main blog is my important one it is the one with a purpose and focus. You’ll understand if you go. But it didn’t let me blog about other issues or reblog anything else i thought worth passing along, so I created a second one just this past Christmas Day. It’s still important to me, but doesn’t have quite the reason for writing.

    It’s dinner time – but I promise I will be back!

    • Thank you so much Sonniq. Please post some hands! I agree with the Buddhist view, – and it works in a negative sense also, when you are pointing AT someone, three of your fingers are pointing back at you. I have visited both your sites briefly – both terrific in their different purposes. I am a new blogger, just finished 101 but missed the enrolment date for 201 (duh!) so although I can follow the posts I don’t have access to The Commons and I miss the community. See you again 🙂

      • I think i might have missed it too. I was waiting for it to come up and i think i saw it the first day and tried to enroll but I haven’t heard anything. But yes, at least following you can put much of it to work and they’ll have another. it’s only a couple weeks long.

        and yes i it does happen in the negative as well. It’s called the law of cause and effect. It’s a lot stricter than most people pay attention to. People usually use the word karma when it’s pertaining to someone else but when it happens to them they are a victim.
