I have been thinking about this line I shared with you from Garrison Keillor a few months back-- and how it resonates so well with both local and national politics right now:
"Anger is poison. Meet hostility with courtesy. Don't spit into the wind. We've got to live with each other angel cakes."
I typed it out and carried it to my first Haines Borough Assembly meeting, placing it on the table where I could see it. It helped me then, and continues to in dealing with a couple of ugly emails I've since received.
