Much love Clay! So many people would get benefit from reading your wonderful work.
You are very kind in what you say. I think there are some prople who don’t understand because they can’t understand. I think it’s a terrible lack that some people have. They are locked inside their own hearts and minds and can’t put themselves in any other people’s shoes. They ignore others because they barely know themselves. They cannot listen because they endlessly repeat their opinions to make them seem more real or true. To borrow a phrase from your writing, it’s normative in our culture.
