Reeve and I with my really cool alarm clock shining like the morning sun on us even though it was dark “as all get-out” outside. Thanks to “What’s Up, Doc?” for the gift. Love it!
Good Thursday to Ya’.
Reeve, my partner, dislikes mornings and prefers to make the rest of us do the morning routine, that is … the “barn chores.”
This is the case even though I wake him with 10,000 lux of good, vitamin D-production-helping, filtered “sunshine” – artificially-produced from my alarm clock. Ten minutes later the [admittedly very fake sounding] birds begin to chirp.
Corporate leaders often balk when faced with controversy. At OutJustice our team has worked on a wide array of social justice issues. Our leadership brings a lot to the professional advocacy table, including extensive experience taking on tough topics and “uphill battles.”
We welcome a challenge.
Of course, we know that many politicians lie, often prosecutors make deals that mean even less “justice” than what the law provides, human resources departments can be shady, and politics is usually what rules the roost no matter where that “roost” sits.
Politics is everywhere; but, sometimes we are surprised in a good way. This week we are pleased with Starbucks.
Starbucks is a company with quite a bit of power. The company stood by equality in the past.
On behalf of virtually everyone in our society let me say: Seriously?!
It’s true. After eleven years with my partner I still want some privacy. Reeve: I have no desire to share my “#2s” with “yous.”
That’s indeed why the door gets locked.
I hear him approach. He says something to me that I cannot make out that is probably one of those questions he already knows the answer to but annoyingly asks anyway (a misguided need for continual conversation? Do others suffer this at home?) … and immediately grabs the handle and TRIES TO ENTER!
