Missed Comments?

ive-missed-youDid I miss your comment? I’m noticing a lot of comments that have not been showing up in my e-mails but are going straight to spam, which I have to manually log into the dashboard to see. Give me some time as I search my way through my files for anyone I may have missed. I enjoy interacting with the social community and would hate to leave anyone unanswered, especially if you have a question. In the meantime, feel free to continue to respond to posts as you see fit and I will get to you shortly. I appreciate the patience.- EC

Writer’s Quote Wednesday – Igbo Proverb

Today’s Writer’s Quote Wednesday, as part of Silver Threading’s weekly cup of inspiration, is from an Igbo Proverb:

igbo proverb“No one gets a mouthful of food by picking between another person’s teeth.”
– Igbo Proverb

There is such powerful symbolism here: Food is what we give the body for energy and nutrients. Food is the substance needed to keep our bodies burning fuel and operating accordingly. Food can therefore be symbolized as anything of value we wish to accompany our lives. Anything we wish to hold on to, to swallow, and to make part of us in a way that will give us nourishment of spirit. Something like a kind word, a friend, understanding, a spouse, or writing itself, anything of substance. The world would be such a happier place and filled with happier people if we all learned to mind our own business. If you are not here to help change the world, you are here to help hinder its growth. Stop looking for flaws in other people since in doing so you will never see the flaws in yourself, since you will never get a mouthful of anything by picking between another person’s teeth.
