Kurt Vonnegut says it all

That's right babies, "be Kind."

That’s right babies, “Be Kind.”

I’ve became a mini-patron of the arts. Here and there I pick up real artwork that adds to the personality of our home. I was in Houston visiting Ethan and Steph when we came across this comic-book style poster/print of Kurt Vonnegut’s well-known saying. I had to have it.

“Be Kind” is the ultimate advice to ourselves and our children. While I’m handing out advice, I’d add, try not to be paranoid or take everything personally, which I often do. This reminds me of a recent Stephen King quote on all the inane political accusations hurled around today: “Sometimes I wish they’d just grow up, shut up and go about the business of helping your fellow men and women.”

I’m a blurter. I appreciate when others just spit it out. How to be a blurter and remember to always “Be Kind?” The Vonnegut poster now hangs in our bedroom and I look at it every time I walk in the room, so  I’m working on it.
