There’s a lot of sense in washing with water after using the toilet. What can a roll of tissue paper do? Rub “it” evenly on your butt? Com’on people.

I am ashamed because I know you are Education students…and you have systems in teaching…[are] taught systems in teaching. I know you are better teachers than me. All I know is that I research a lot. I don’t research for grades…I am retired. I don’t research for money—sometimes I research for things that don’t even directly benefit me…. I am just in a quest for truths. [emphasis mine]

Grief, Realities, and instik

Air droplets No Comments
On a poem, with instik:
“When you’re in love you feel grief?”
“No, grief is love.”
“In this reality (the poem’s).”
“Oh, you should have told me that.”
“I’ve been telling (or trying to tell, lol) you. But don’t think of love as grief in our reality, it’s just the poem’s.”
“But do remember that in reality, love leads to grief.”
“How can that be? When love is bigger than reality?”
