Good Times!

I was driving home listening to the radio when the song Too Close, by Next  came on. It took me back to the days of hanging out at The Orange Tree Resort in the lounge on a Friday or Saturday night listening to Dony's rendition of that song. We would dance up until the band ended. The band was Tribe 7 with Dony Adair.

They are ready to accept and love unconditionally until we and society teach them differently.

There was nothing but smiles and laughter as they danced, made beaded jewelry, and ate. They made sure that they all were a part of whatever they were participating in. They cared about each other's feelings and made sure that everyone was having fun and was happy. Why is it that we grow to become so obsessed with appearance and behavior of others that we miss seeing the light or the struggles in others?  We're so quick to judge b…
