 Well, I'm eager to build community in this community. I know there are other giraffes out there in my daily life, but unless I catch someone being blatantly compassionate, I don't know it.

I found an NVC cartoon series, and I couldn't help but get a laugh out of it. 

Of course, it would help me meet my needs for connection if you were to share what's alive in you. Speaking as a baby giraffe, I hope this community will help me become more aware of what my needs are, and how I deal with them when they're not met. 

Lately, I've been especially focused on the need for connection. Today, I'm teaching a scuba class, and, this mornign, I wasn't eager to do it. I'm looking at the ways the class will help me connect with the new divers, and now, I think it'll be ok.

I'm headed to a Alternatives to Violence training in a week.

I think i may need it in communication.

Someone was explaining nonviolent communication principles to me once and told me one should never apologize. That has puzzled me. Does it make sense to you that an apology is violent? I suppose it goes with judging that there's a right and wrong?
