Flowers and Candor or Dinner and Dancing (around the bush)

~ Paradoxical Porridge I ~


People who discuss others outside of their presence in the most dishonest and negative terms

Seem the most shocked and offended by those who say what they have to say honestly, without malice and directly to them

Paradox and Understanding

~ Paradoxical Porridge II ~


The clarity and honesty I wish to convey to another 

is useful to the person I hope will understand, 

only if they are honest and clear with themselves.


And, if they being honest and clear in this respect, 

there is nothing, least of all understanding,

that I need to convey.

Paradox is often the outcome of understanding
