..........or you can walk away.

LOL!

And the birds in the background are thinking
"Ok, act cool...pretend you don't know them...."

Great picture, Z!

I like the caption. The trick is to know when.

Z said...

Thanks, Heather, it sure is a perfect illustration of my caption, isn't it!

Elbro, 'the trick is to know when' is right. geeeeZ will only be accepting rational, informed, respectful comments from now on....like the huge majority of my great commenters (and it's a privilege to have them here!) Differing viewpoints are, as always, welcome.

Chuck said...

My problem is I'm not always good at walking away

Z said...

Chuck, me, too!

Z said...

There's nobody who loves a good fight here at geeeZ more than I do, some insults are fun and creative and that's good....
The trick is also to know "how".

Craig and Heather said...

I did appreciate your caption, Z.

And it's a good reminder for me as I not only tend to "rush in where angels fear to tread", but also tend to be stubborn about not letting go.

Z said...

Heather, we all can be stubborn, we just need to sense when we need to walk away..(not always easy, i know!)
It's the wise, not 'foolish', who tread carefully and productively, right!?
Stick around, good discussion needs us all.xxxx
Also, I put a lot of stock in 'know your audience'...
(especially in witnessing, by the way)

lol aw Z..how approriate girl!

Birds have a whole different manner of body language and expression.

They're very interesting.

And I say, GET INTO IT!!! :)

Faith said...

Great picture, what expressive birds. Ms. Z has her father's talent but a different vision. As it should be.

Z said...

Faith, thanks...she does have a different sensitivity/eye than he did but nonetheless very good. I loved this picture and it very well illustrated the point I'm trying to allude to.

Brooke, I love "Get into it"...I just need to set new rules. xx

Faith said...

Some things it seems to me we SHOULD get into, some best to walk away. Depends on what you have in mind.

(By the way, for a long time I've taken for granted that I'm going to get some kind of error message when I post something, and that I have to just keep backing up the browser before anything will post. Of course I always also save what I typed first. Is this a common problem for people here?)

Craig and Heather said...

Faith,

Blogger's giving me trouble, too.

Z said...

Faith, Pris tells me she has that problem from time to time, too. I have no control, sadly.

Please read my comments....The last thing I'm suggesting here is we not get deeply into ANY subject.

But, I want the insults to stop, I want the "Dog chewing the man's pant hem and not letting go" to stop. Sometimes, we're not going to convince anybody on things political and everybody's journey is different, too, in re to other topics. I need that respected by everyone.

Z said...

By the way, I only want it respected HERE, at my blog. What others want to do is TOTALLY fine with me, elsewhere!

I'm just grateful for good, open communication ...like Elmer's Brother said on the phone the other day "Our blog is our front porch, and we should only have guests there we want to have there"

I'm glad you're here, Faith.. and everybody else who weighed in here today xx
