THE GEM 17 JULY 2015 : Advice is like snow – the softer it falls, the longer it dwells upon, and the deeper in sinks into the mind.

THE OLD PROVERBIAL RECOVERY

Samuel Taylor Coleridge

1  a childsfirstpictu00freerich_0019

“If you want to marry me, here’s what you’ll have to do:
You must learn how to make a perfect chicken-dumpling stew.
And you must sew my holey socks,
And soothe my troubled mind,
And develop the knack for scratching my back,
And keep my shoes spotlessly shined.
And while I rest you must rake up the leaves,
And when it is hailing and snowing
You must shovel the walk…and be still when I talk,
And-hey-where are you going?”

― Shel Silverstein, Where the Sidewalk Ends
