—If someone is provoking you, he might be trying to get you to fight to put you in a bad light ... If someone is acting like a confrontative child, sometimes it's good to let the child win ... You never have to level with certain people – You never have to give explanations – You can just sort of bumble, make up little excuses – You will get the message across ... "I hate you!" (No response, why should I provide free therapy?) ... An angry person is really stuck in emotional center ... Make a compendium of dirty tricks that your parents played on you (to keep you off-balance): A. Broken promises; B. Lies about what was said; C. "I had an evil thought and then I punished myself for the rest of the day because I'm not perfect like you." (You're everything; I'm nothing); D. "Shut up!" "Well after all, we're in a French restaurant." ... The best answer to a fool is silence – The best way to get along is to never meet.

REFLECTIONS

 
 
 
 
 

04-JUL-1999.

The Sun, the Moon, the Tides,
and the Cathedral

A cathedral symbolizes a person's body. When someone acts like they know what's going on inside your mind and body, they are violating your cathedral. They are simply guessing about your ideals, they have no idea what sweets and bitters you really like, what experiences you have had, or what you wish, and they have no business laying their hands on you. Especially when they are right, they are wrong.

My head is the sun —
It makes light.

My spine and my lungs are the moon —
They make tides.

My fingers and toes are stars —
They have will.

Then that's being yourself —
That's what kids are like.

One of my dogs is a brindled Scottie named Paris who hangs out with me at Bette's Oceanview Diner. Paris has long grey hair and if you don't look carefully, you might mistake him for an otter. "Oh, my God!" some lady exclaimed this afternoon as we pushed through a crowd of shoppers, "He looks like a rat!" Actually, he does, and I didn't think anything of it until later, at the Point Isabel dog park, when I happened to mention the incident to one of my close friends. "Oooo, Watch out! That's a terrible thing to say!" Alex said.

"—Or vice versa," I said.

"So what did you say?" Alex said with a gleam in his eye. "Well, actually I didn't say anything," I started to say. "You see, I had already walked past her, and I couldn't quite tell if she had been describing me or Paris. Now if she had been talking about Paris, ...."
