I was cleaning out dead links on my sidebar and came across this article on gossip which struck home for me. There are many times I feel compelled to "discuss" someone with a close friend. Afterward, I feel terrible and I know it is because I have chosen to gossip. As my mother always says "En bocas cerradas, no entran moscas". Flies do not enter a closed mouth.
