  1. This actually made me think about the way that particular societies stereotype people. Why the bloody hell can't he go out for a drink? Does that suddenly stop because yozu are 'old'? Where I live, you rarely see women in the pubs and I sometimes nip for a bevy on my own, when in a lot of peoples' view here I should be at home cooking the dinner. You have to just be yourself, but it is hard work sometimes, especially when you are living up to your own expectations, not other peoples'. Good on him, lovely to see him and how his face lights up when he smiles. xxx

  8. If you give your presence, its stability, its peace, its lightness, its steadiness, his freedom, or your understanding, your gift will do wonders.
