Cryptoquote Spoiler – 07/19/16

I don’t believe in villains – just people who channel their energy in the wrong way.”   —   Elizabeth McGovern

(Aah!  The progeny of two teachers.  Surely, she was raised in an environment that encouraged questioning . . . just about everything.  Especially if neither of them were teaching creationism!  It’s just seems so simplistic attaching the label “evil” to people, and things, who/that run contrary to most of our values.  But then again, it is also much more acceptable to do so.  Be well, try to be fair, and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

    That is what I strive for in my daily messages, Tiff. Most labeling, but especially negative labeling, is just so limiting! Have a great day, hon!

    It’s great to have you back.

    Elizabeth McGovern’s sister, Cammie McGovern, is noteworthy, too. She is a magazine writer and a novelist. Her most acclaimed book is a young adult novel entitled “Say What You Will.” It is the story of two teenagers who are struggling with challenging life situations…Amy has CP and Matthew has obsessive compulsive disorder. McGovern lets us look at the world through their eyes and understand it though their thoughts. It is an unsentimental treatment of difficult material, and it’s funny and completely believable. The book demystifies and humanizes what most people would call disabilities. McGovern is speaking from experience: Her oldest son is on the autism spectrum. “Say What you Will” is a YA gem.

    Like you suggest, there must have been some good things happening in that household as the McGovern sisters were growing up.

    Love the info, Wheeler! And, just as there are cycles of abuse, there are also cycles of good parenting. The best compliment you can give me is telling me how great you think my “kids” are! — YUR
