Wise Friend,

“It’s never about the cost; it is about customer satisfaction.” Oh! It sounds so beautiful! I risk being moved and stop thinking.

What an inversion of reality and practicality! Which business would survive without worrying about cost?

Sensitive Friend,

Whose money is this person spending? If it’s her money, she still conveys a wrong message; this is how she sustains financial illiteracy.

It sounds like, covering ignorance, hubris, carelessness with pedestrian demagoguery.

If it is not her money, then who gives the money to her?

Wise Friend,

Many leave outside of reality while earning a living. I’m not sure if they ever wake up. They strive and survive. The problem, is their naiveté hurts thinking.

Sensitive Friend,

From time to time, social media annoys me so much. I used to refrain myself from confronting. I repeatedly have to tell myself this is only a social media “friend” and not my friend. Things changed, sometimes, these are the people who share the same values, and the way they raise and issue or respond overcomes not ever meeting but allowing me to clarify thoughts, to change my mind, if I decide so.

Wise Friend,

Real life annoys us frequently. It’s not the monopoly of social media.

I’m thinking about a group of people on social media, not the ones I stop following as I do with real life friendships, given seriously opposite values; the ones who seem to swim in a river of neutrality with intelligent wording. They make me wonder: “What are actually their opinions?” Two days ago, one shared the video of a woman crying and talking about the death of an acquaintance, commenting that each time somebody dies, something dies in him. It struck me as cheap comment.

Yesterday, Boston happened. Not even one mention. I knew he was the one not to follow any longer, he stepped out the neutrality river.

Wise Friend,

Enchanted by her son’s sweet words, Caterina wrote to me, “He made me think about myself and wondering what would my mission be….”.

Bringing up a good, manly man is quite a mission!
Enjoy the journey!
The rest is secondary.

 

 

Sensitive Friend, 

Yesterday, the journalist wrote about witnessing a beating. She called it “injustice.” It was “evil.” Scratching my head, why as a narrator, she refused to call evil “evil?”

Today, Boston was attacked. If they don’t get caught, we have injustice. If we refuse to call it “evil,” then we disparage the truth.

Wise Friend,

Let’s dare say: “This is evil!”

Today, my toddler granddaughter spoon-fed her food to the father saying: “Aaah!” The father obliged.
