The Prevailing Diagonal

A    L    O    H    A  !
Down Palm Lane
One may not 
reach the dawn 
save by the path 
of the night. "

Germaine Greer 




  " I have never 
been hurt
 by what I have
 not 
said. "

 Calvin Coolidge

" What worse illness
 can there be 
than acute 
conventionality. 
You should pray
 every night 
that you don't 
wake up with it. "

George Weinberg

Cool clothing; wondering about the heritage and timeframe for the attire; seems to be a wedding from an old dynasty.

My overall lifestyle has been bitten by the disease - acute conventionality. But, it hasn't attacked my mind yet.

Oh my yes, I think a spot of tea or a glass of wine with that couple would be quite engaging! How fun to spot them.

I have not been hurt by what I haven't said - but have certainly regretted kindness and gratitude not expressed. A work in progress.

I love Coolidge's quote. We should all try to remember that. I have been known to stick my foot in my mouth too many times.
