At The Beaver
Taken with Horizon 202

This is what happens when a cat with a fetish for crinkly things gets hold of a piece of film.

Just read all the stories on The Forgiveness Project {via SuperHero}. Of all the stories, I related to this woman's perspective best:

"For me forgiveness began with murderous rage."

Also the wisdom of these words from Desmond Tutu:

"To forgive is not just to be altruistic. It is the best form of self-interest. It is also a process that does not exclude hatred and anger. These emotions are all part of being human. You should never hate yourself for hating others who do terrible things: the depth of your love is shown by the extent of your anger."

More than ever I know I need to figure this forgiveness thing out, but my anger is only just now even remotely beginning to surface... Forgiveness is so often conceptualized as a concept separated from and opposite to anger. These words have made me think.
