Long live all maidens

easy and beautiful !

Long live mature women also,

Tender and loveable and full of good labor.

Ignorance is Bliss  

Hi again, 

So ... your foray into the meditation room allowed you to give all the idiots the right of way, eh?  At least you were in the moment. 

While we are more informed than our grandparents, we are not necessarily wiser. The internet and the copious books on health can lead to what Stephen Leacock wrote about in the short story, Symptoms  (I think that’s the title, although I can’t find it on line). His premise was: the more you know about illnesses, the more you experience the symptoms. It’s hilarious, and of course, exaggeration and simplification, but I do believe that we can become preoccupied with all the warnings. The media spins the news and increases the Fear Factor in so many cases. We, on the other hand, have to consider our Quality of Life.  I, for one, like my vino, my poutine, and my three-inch heels.   

That is an absolutely telling line: I have not come across Lindas and Annes at St. Hildegarde's except for secretaries and admin.  We might discuss what it reveals. Interesting, indeed.

Of course, I always prefer to drive home with you, Adria, when it’s convenient.  I do wonder if Eddy will be there. I thought Francine overdid it last week, when she asked me if I knew where he was. She must have seen or heard me accept a lift from him. How exciting!  Another little drama within the writing circle.

Am also scrambling to have something ready for domani. (So many foreign words lately.  I wonder what it all means.) I’d better get to it.  So see you soon: same time, same place. 

Sleuth Sarah
