"What is the difference between unethical and ethical advertising? Unethical advertising uses falsehoods to deceive the public; ethical advertising uses truth to deceive the public."

This activity of blogging goes WAY beyond what anybody is saying or thinking. It is nothing less than a world wide nervous system in which all sorts of people see, think, and feel what someone very far away (and often very different) is seeing, thinking and feeling.

Every day I visit England, Pennsylvania, Mumbai, Crete, Texas, Toronto, Hong Kong, Tennessee, Louisiana, and New York CITY! And in each place I "talk story" with a person of heart and mind. Often a picture or an idea stays in my mind all day.

John Gardner once wrote:

"To write with taste, in the highest sense, is to write with the assumption that one out of a hundred people who read one's work may be dying, or have some loved one dying; to write so that no one commits suicide, no one despairs; to write as Shakespeare wrote, so that people understand, sympathize, see the universality of pain, and feel strengthened, if not directly encouraged to live on."

Each reader is a gift. They bring their time, they open their hearts, and come along the path of our words willingly. Thank you my readers - especially those of you who are also writers. We carry on the conversation, and perhaps we are each grace notes in a world filling symphony.
