Little Things.1

So I've decided to add a new category of entries to this blog: Little Things. These entries will be the most saturated with cheesy optimism. I was about to name the category 'Little Things that Make Me Smile', but then tagging each entry with that title is simply too long. But yes, basically these snippets are about exactly that: little things that make me smile.

So for the first one:

I was walking to the gas station to get a pack of cigs, in the middle of Virginia - the South, a red state - and I passed a parking lot; and a bumper sticker on one of the cars read:

"Hate is a learned behavior"

Granted, I couldn't conclude whether the car's owner was advocating compassion, or that we should teach hate, but I'd like to think it was the former. Seeing this public statement of advocacy makes me happy and hopeful.

    Hate is a learned Behavior: Not sure, some things we do have a reaction and alot of times we don't know why. I hate cauliflower. like really hate.

    my personal fav rear view bumper sticker said 'Look, admire, enthuse but don't slam into'
