    Her comments about her father reinforce my belief about the Christian comment 'Thou shalt honour thy father and mother' which is - Why? Because they are older, your parents, wise, live in the same house, drink too much, abuse you, live as criminals, run an international aid agency?
    Respect is EARNED, not imposed by some animal sacrificing primitive's idea of what I should do according to HIS mores.
    Hurrah for Anais.

And then the day came,
when the risk
to remain tight
in a bud
was more painful
than the risk
it took
to Blossom.
