This is what we read this week on the internet. By sharing, there’s hopefully an opportunity to grow together as human beings - flexing our brains and opening our hearts. Or, we’re projecting and feeling inadequate and are trying to engage you as we work out our stuff.
Below you’ll find some links. When you click on one, it’ll take you to a story/picture/song/etc that we felt compelled to share. Maybe the links below have something in common, a theme of sorts. Maybe they don’t. They will always be interesting and will always be of some value. Take a moment and click through them, it’ll be fun.

- The LA Times and how citrus farmers in Redlands, CA have partnered with LAUSD and managed to keep heads above water.
