Musings on ageing without too much trauma, from the porch of my 120 year old saltbox style house.

Sunny with a chance of quarter sized hail...on the porch...
Question #17. Where should I break the rules? Beck says "Sometimes you have to break the rules around you to keep the rules within you." I have been saving the hardest questions for last. What are my rules? I am civil, I believe in civility...manners. Respect. I want that in return from the people around me. It seems old fashioned of me to expect people to be kind and mannerly. I am taken aback by rudeness and social cruelty. The rules I break (will not do) to stay true to myself are the ladder climbing at another's expense, to profit at someone else's loss. I do not judge others for their beliefs. This is the way of the world...but not for me.
