While Caviar’s passing leaves a massive hole in our lives, we can still ‘fill it in’ with
Some Perfect “Cav’ities’!”:
“Pfft...no worries, life is too short to take things too seriously.”
While on the topic of the stage, where the hell is that Godot fellow anyway? I feel like I've been waiting for him forever.
Tripping over the lights
basted in halogen glaze,
with stars in the eyes
and elephants in the heart,
we stomach on
and dream of Fiji,
and natural beauty.
Fresh falling snow,
each flake unique.
to cling to branches
join the elite order
laughing at their brethren
below, trampled, shoveled,
(what are we, caviar?)
until each individual
into an unreconizable
An unexpected warm day
proves the equalizer.
I'm probably considered something of a character.
Ahh, O'Bill, lighten up. Sometimes I just like to mess with people.
Another good technique is to just change the subject by saying something like, "so how are your kids, do you know where they are?"
Ahh, the key to a good one-liner is timing and context. Having a bunch memorized is just wrong, they'll be ineffective:
"Painting must be so relaxing."
"Yes it is, especially when I'm comatose. So, what are your 'hobbies' <sarcastic tone>, welding and small engine repair?"
I suppose I define stewardship differently. To me, it's closer to the Native tradition of only taking what you need, and giving thanks for it, recognizing both our power to upset the balance, and also our responsibility to maintain it. Semantics, maybe, but that's how I've always viewed the concept.
Well, your first error is blaming this on what you call "contemporary religiosity" which is flagrantly untrue. This attitude of male dominance over women, and the belief of their superiority to women dates back thousands of years. As for the rest of your post, I don't believe a damn word, and refuse to address it, really. A perceptive person can see that your argument is completely full of holes. I don't know where you live, but in North America, women are not nearly as complacent or 'marginalized' as you might expect. Now, if you want to make this a discussion of the marginalization of women globally, that is an entirely different kettle of fish, and you should have been more specific about that in the original post. Sweeping generalizations do not make a good thesis.
shewolf, I thought you were already married. Is this about the hubby's haircut? ______________________________________
cavfancier has a double meaning, the first for my dog, a Cavalier King Charles Spaniel, and the second for caviar, Russian Osetra please.
I love my craft, and go into a serious shame spiral when things get slow. Thankfully, there are cool forums like this to interact with others and pass on my superior knowledge, muahaahaa....(don't do evil laugh terribly well, being in a service industry). Sometimes wacky, sometimes serious, just yer average dude in a white jacket...
