It's All Mishegoss - Wednesday #77
By Mark & Patti Clifford • Issue #77 • View online
Hello Friends and welcome to Wednesday. 
This past weekend and week I’ve been thinking about passion and compassion. The funny thing is yesterday while reading through Medium as I do there was a post from my friend Mike Sturm all about passion and compassion. Imagine that and my surprise.
The post actually was perfect and is the first post you’ll see here today since it supported my idea that we really need to be thinking about compassion more than passion.
The stories I curated today are all about compassion. Compassion for convicts/inmates in solitary confinement. Compassion about kids being exploited and compassion for refugees throughout the world.
What defines passion and or compassion for you? Have you ever sat down and really thought about those two words as they relate to you?
I did over the weekend and that’s when I realized that my passion for a very personal project was more about compassion. As much as my passion for this personal project actually was consuming me to the point I actually almost walked away, after thinking this past weekend my compassion for the project is what actually brought me back into the fold of completing it.
So take a little time today or throughout the week and ask yourself the questions I asked above. Think hard and if you want to let me know your answer feel free to email me at If you do write to me and I have your permission I would like to include those answers in Sunday’s edition. I believe others would like to hear from you.
Have a great Wednesday and see you Sunday!
