... it can take me hours (or in one case, days) to work out how I want to say it here/on-line....
A good post is like poetry. Every words counts.
And humor is quite defusing, when the tension mounts.
Compliments certainly break the ice,
any acknowledgement makes everyone feel nice,
and a good link, or an apt quote, certainly lends a bounce.
If you focus on your own opinion, then you can never be wrong.
Or acknowledge, understand, then extend their idea like a song...
Focus on the news, the facts, the idea itself,
then most all logic will become top shelf,
and even supposed "enemies" will teach you good and long.
To think, live well, share, and belong.
