Lions Roar : January 2012
SHAMBHALA SUN JANUARY 2012 64 couples counseling, or if it was their son who had screwed up a marriage with a wonderful woman whom they had grown to love. “Vanessa made a few bad deci- sions,” was all I could get out before chok- ing back the tears. No dummies, they read between the lines. Stoic and supportive as always, my dad told me to let them know if I needed anything. “Okay,” my mother said, “now let’s have a drink.” Week 4 With a week to go, my main problem is no longer being a mindless smartass (now I’m a mindful one), but staying away from the plethora of meanspirited websites I troll for hours on end.

It allows me to have com- passion, for the people struggling with addiction, the disasters, the wars, and murders. I pray for them. Must know their suffering to be able to help them.” But what about the hours I was losing to The Soup, Celebrity Rehab, and The Drudge Report? “If you need information, make a list of what you want, go to your computer, find this, and turn it off.
