I’m neither intellectually lazy, apathetic, nor ineffective because I have more choices than a sledgehammer in my toolkit for change.

I will not cry myself to sleep if you do not adopt my beliefs; but if you don’t consider that I’m coming from a place of friendly discussion and helpfulness, you devalue (to me) my effort.

I am, if nothing else, merely more granular.

I still choose to love you more than most of my luggage. Not my STM messenger bag though; I love The Judge (in desert brown) very much indeed.
