"If the audience is composed of broccoli and rhinoceroses, stop giving your speech. You're not going to get your point across, no matter how well you express yourself."
That works so well as a metaphor for some of the things going on in my life right now, on so many levels, it's just amazing.
And from a conversation with a dear friend:
"well - [family]'s not something everyone wants. intimacy scares a lot of people...they want to love from a distance. And it's pretty impossible to do."
Not said in response to anything specific, per se, but certainly germane to some of the things I've been observing lately.
Many major things are afoot right now. More later.
