Many thanks to J from Brazil for her fun addition to the blog! She found us, read our entry, and responded that she "loved the word!" It just goes to show that caffection is a universal term for the love, affection, respect, and curiosity we can all have if we aren't afraid to light a candle and seek it out.
There's only one way to live fully, satisfy our yearning for connection, and enjoy the wealth that's available to all of us, and that is to let go of the suspicion and irritation we feel for those who are different. We're all different to somebody. Some days we're even different to ourselves.
So, from Ohio to Brazil, Muito Abrigado, J! Write again soon.
