Brian’s Reflection: Friday, July 4, 2008
Caresses, expressions of one sort or another,
are necessary to the life of the affections as
leaves are to the life of a tree. If they are wholly
restrained, love will die at the roots.
- Nathaniel Hawthorne, author, born on this
day, 1804, in Salem, Massachusetts
The World, and human beings, are for caresses. It may sound sappy, but it’s a lot better than greed, power, control, hate, racism, homophobia, sexism, arrogance, indifference, war, militarism, etc.
This July 4, why not (within the bounds of appropriateness) do a lot of caressing?
E-caresses to you all!!
