Today's Tendril...

Sometimes mistakes become scars.

Sometimes mistakes are easily erased.

And sometimes, well sometimes, mistakes become monuments of warning,
recognition,
or remembrance.

Logic of Appearances 1

Point and whisper.
Logic of appearances.
Condemn on sight.
Logic of appearances.
Image over substance.
Logic of appearances.
Acceptance feeds expectation.
Logic of appearances.
Acceptability in context.
Logic of appearances.

But no book is its cover,
And no mirror is its face.

Lines of Exploration 2

Taglines and frontlines,
And lines in the sand.
Headlines and bylines,
And "truth" that's been canned.

There's more to a story,
Even at "The End,"
For the fabric of a soul,
Will always need a mend.

Today's Tendril...

Knowledge is like a jar full of sand — gaps remain between the grains.

Today's Tendril... A Cliche Re-revisited

There's no "I" in team.

But there is in reality.

Today's Tendril...

All too easy to hoist the sails of popular opinion and catch the winds of prevailing thought.

Not so easy to put the oars in the waters of personal opinion and row to the shores of independent thought.

Said the...

    Said a rock to a desert cactus, "Ever want to turn yourself into a balloon, just float away, and come to rest in a greener pasture?"

    Replied the cactus, "What's a pasture?"

    "Never mind," said the rock.

    And the rock sighed long after the brutal desert sun finally set and the cold desert night settled on its surface.

Meaning in Decline

Beauty is subjective.
Transformation destroys something.
Chaos is relative.
Order requires power.
Honesty is elusive.
Privacy needs a shield.
Reality is myopic.
Only the struggle lasts forever.

When trust is used as a dangling carrot, don't be surprised when the donkey heads for the cliff, cart and all.

Today's Tendril...

When given a choice, take platitudes over attitudes.

But when the choice isn't yours to make, smile at the platitudes and brace for the attitudes.

The trouble with a system of "checks and balances" is that too many people write bad checks.

When does a box of possibilities become a box of horrors?

When it's Pandora's Box.
