      “These three ladies changed our lives” by Dayle A. Dermatis (Non-sex-related, Memoir) 11/21/11

Since the author of this post (also known as Andrea Dale, a fellow erotica author), is someone I know personally, it’s possible this story affects me more than it would were that not the case. But I’m not sure—it seems to me it is a striking account of beautiful actions that brings me to tears. Regardless of whether I personally know those involved or not, I feel true gratitude for that kind of expression of beauty.

      “Michigan – Endings and Beginnings” by Jade at A Poly Life (Non-sex-related, Parenting, Youth) 12/2/11

As simple as this post may seem, I felt quite moved by it. The sincere affection and love of a parent combined with the equally sincere recognition of one’s child as an autonomous being, and having the strength and equilibrium to be with both, inspires me deeply.

      “A Victim Treats His Mugger Right” by Michael Garofalo (Non-sex-related, Personal, Memoir) 3/28/08

This strikes me as poignantly and beautifully encompassing of the kind of love and perspective that it seems to me can change the world.
