In my "unique" life, October 8th was all mixed up with tasks, blessings, communications, worries, observations and a few opportunities to help other people with their unique lives.
Early this morning I read a piece written on the class blog by another student. The student was working on lesson 4, exploring "conflict."

the intellectual identification with or vicarious experiencing of the feelings, thoughts, or attitudes of another.
