Moon Rabbit? + Commitment to Respect

I was able to update my eye glasses recently... I'm classically short-sighted. In other words, things at a distance, I see as blurry! Reading up-close is all good.

Looking at the full moon the other night, I distinctly saw the ears of "The Moon Rabbit" quite clearly... I'd never noticed them before! Bindy, of course, thought I was going (more) potty! These new glasses are awesome!!!
Have you ever seen the Moon Rabbit?

And yes, I must admit that I do have an active visual imagination! heh heh 

Statement of Commitment to address "Horizontal Violence"

(Mal: While these are specifically 'work-place' addressed, these are still highly relevant to any interpersonal relationships... and quite adaptable in any situation, surely?)
As your colleague with a shared goal I commit to the following:
  • I will accept responsibility for establishing and maintaining healthy interpersonal relationships with you and every member
  • I will talk to you promptly if I am having a problem with you.
  • The only time I will discuss it with another person is when I need advice or help in deciding how to communicate with you appropriately.
  • I will establish and maintain a relationship of functional trust with you and every member.
  • My relationships with each of you will be equally respectful, regardless of job titles or levels of educational preparation.
  • I will not engage in the '3B's (bickering, back-biting and bitching) and will ask you not to as well.
  • I will not complain about another member and ask you not to as well.
  • If I hear you doing so, I will ask you to talk to that person.
  • I will accept you as you are today, forgiving past problems, and ask you to do the same with me.
  • I will be committed to finding solutions to problems rather than complaining about them or blaming someone, and ask you to do the same.
  • I will affirm your contribution.
  • I will remember that neither of us is perfect, and that human errors are opportunities not for shame or guilt, but for forgiveness and growth.
