Years ago ...
This is the age of the 'sensitive'.
We have to be careful about what we say, what we hear, what we do, and what we see.
Yes - like the wise monkeys.

Strangely enough - there is more tolerance towards others, by some - and less, to others.
The lines are getting blurred, or is it a change in morality that is the new vogue ?
The new world is getting smaller, information more available.
All of this is very interesting, altho not better in so many ways.

This has been a strange week, a week of changing mindsets.
Those there, those strange ones - they have become mine, and with that I have to make peace.

Here a story, told to me years ago, it would like to be repeated.
It is not mine, it is story for all people in all worlds.

When I was 9, the biggest, cleverest, and strongest person in my life was my Father.
Then a few years later, I noticed he was slipping.
By the time I was round-about 20, he was not all that clever, rather a wimp, and not all that impressive.
At 30 I noticed an improvement in my Dad, slowly he was learning.
40, and I was a dad to a teenager myself, and knew my Dad knew it all along.

Such is life - and then there are those who had no dad, they had to learn in another way.

Full moon again,
and bad news was the order of the day -
altho there was a silver lining,
if there were clouds,
which there was not.

The story of the jackal is to be told.
The unfortunate mutt turned up at our door, as friendly as can be.
A wagging tail, a smile on the snout, a true friend to all mankind.
She was a descendant from the line of the jackal.
Hunger was her mate, and she gobbled all in sight.
Then the travesty, the rat poison was still on the ground.
The label said it was meant for rats which were Warfarin-proof,
and four to ten days will mean the end of the varmint.
She was no varmint, she was no problem to anyone, and it was only a mouthful.
Ten days was a long time, the label was true.
Sometimes life has ways which is strange to all ...

"Look not at what is contrary to propriety; listen not to what is contrary to propriety; speak not what is contrary to propriety; make no movement which is contrary to propriety" (非禮勿視, 非禮勿聽, 非禮勿言, 非禮勿動)
Confusius; he says.

This period ends on the 19th September - no particular day to remember.
Unless another round with the issues are to be considered as important.
A law, to be a law, must have teeth.
Sometimes those teeth are false teeth.
