Question: Sorry EJ, I’m done. This stuff is bullshit; can get this in tabloids.

Waylon Lewis: Dawna, I hear you, as the founder this isn’t exactly what I care to read, and I haven’t read it (yet). That said, elephant, like Rolling Stone, New Yorker, NY Times, Vanity Fair, or other publications I admire, needs to make room for family and adventure, sex and spirituality, sadness and joy, meditation and celebration…for deep stories, for philosophy, and for fun, inspiring stuff.

Don’t fall into Fox News mentality: only following or participating in that media or clubs or societies you already agree with, 100%. ~ Waylon.

    The original article relates a change in the writers' life that made personal growth and progress possible. I find it sad when some people discount the value of someone elses writing because they don't, can't or won't identify with it… or even just enjoy it for its own sake.

    I do pass on many of the articles about sexuality and relationships; I am not in that life-space. But I still can relate because it's not as if I never have been in that life-space and for a significant enough amount of time, at that. There are those who don't want to be in my life-space, and those who are in life-spaces I don't want to be in. Of course, watching TV and reading the newspaper help immeasurably–those should be done more often by anybody who want to see a glimpse of others' life spaces … that includes me.
