I try to lead an ethical life and so prefer to lead one based on principle and consistency not impulse and whimsy. I lack the herd instinct and like to reflect a while before making the big choices so that if I am the odd one out at least I will know why.
I like to close my eyes on a windy day and feel the wind rush by and hear it stir the tree branches. See the stars decorate a night sky.I still have a sense of wonder and hope that I always will.Its nice to stop and smell the flowers from time to time.
I despise wanton cruelty but have come to believe it is part of the human condition balanced against the good that we are also capable of.... a dichotomy that is only reconciled through a wide angle lens so to speak.
For me, kindness matters. Honour is a given. Curious always. To follow that path just to see where it goes is a lifelong addiction. I am shy and reserved at the outset, somewhat socially awkward but easygoing and warm hearted if there is a connection. I am self confident without the attitude. Courteous and civil always. Lifelong learner.
Friends only is ok by me. Ladies choice. Like her to be her own person. Have her own dreams, discovering her world and her place in it. I support that. I call it respect.
We are living books , still being written, some a drama, some a poem, some a mystery. Which one are you?
poetry by Yeats. Lots of other, .....Lots.
