Drinking tea with Justice this morning.

True Justice always asks you to distinguish between desire and need, doesn't it? It is something I attempt to teach el nino constantly. Justice may carry the scales and sword of legal probity, but in her heart she is attempting to understand what is behind the conflict so she can meet the needs on both sides.

You kid yourself if you think that justice is always meted equally across the board, however. Sometimes one side must be treated differently than the other.

The fundamental concept behind your relationships? The greatest good for the greatest number.

"She reminded me of a warning I was fond of repeating: do not, under any> circumstances, belittle a work of fiction by trying to turn it into a carbon copy of real life; what we search for in fiction is not so much reality but the epiphany of truth."

yaya for always doing quotes these days!

"When you feel fucked up, everyone is happy. When you are alone, the world is an ark. You are a bizarre animal, one of a kind, and they are sailing off as the rain comes down harder and the water starts rising over your knees."

--Kim Addonizio's Little Beauties

"You never even worried, with Jane, whether your hand was sweaty or not. All you knew was, you were happy. You really were."
(Catcher in the Rye)

Anyone who worries with you is a fool. I'm glad Justice has tea with you and I bet she holds your hand.

Travel well.
