  • Double dip into some honey on Friday at Woodshed!
  • Before ball-of-man, Selleck shared an excerpt from Awareness, a book by Anthony De Mello about evaluating yourself – Do you want to change the world? How about beginning with yourself? In short, Anthony De Mello preaches on the importance of listening and observing to understand, not to consistently cast judgement and labels on others. Labeling others with quick judgement is when understanding ends.
  • Coffeteria to follow

Aye!
