I was given T by [livejournal.com profile] cindywrites. Thus, in alphabetical order:

Talmud: Thank you to the old Hebrews for realising that it's important for interpretation to evolve while parts of the text stay fixed.

tenderness: One form of the principle by which I try to live my life: Don't be mean. Pretend that other people are just as vulnerable in their soft spots as you are.

throat: My uvula is swollen this morning, and it's a spooky feeling, like I'm going to choke on part of my own body. Truly weird and discomfiting.

toenails: As much as Bull Durham is filled with cliches, the toenail-painting scene is a wonderful and mischievous look at sensual love and gratification delayed and redirected.

together: I fear that our society is going to have to rediscover what the word 'solidarity' means, before we can make any more progress.

touch: So important, so twisted by people who want to turn it all into sex or all into sin. Comfort and safety.

travel: I'm getting to be too old to tour Europe for a month with nothing but a backpack. But I still want to do it.

treasure: Too much of the noun, not enough of the verb.

Turkey: o/~ Istanbul, was Constantinople, now it's Istanbul, not Constantinople ... o/~

turtle: Sometimes I want to pull my head in and just wait until it's all over. But turtles also always remind me of [livejournal.com profile] alterjess, and joy from unexpected places.

Ah~ touch... can bring so much by doing only a little. of late it seems to bring great comfort to my loved ones.

And Karl- you're never to old to live out a dream.

I'm glad that there is good touch in your life; you are certainly gifted with it.

If you would like it, your letter is S.

I keep company with good people, both online and off -- yourself most emphatically included. I'm also very pleased to be able to return some of the inspiration to you -- it's a two-way street.

If you would like it, your letter is P.

In other news...

Happy birthday!

I'm terribly sorry that I missed your b'day, brother. When can we get together to celebrate?

I'm way to literal. If someone offered me "T", I'd wonder if there were scones and sympathy as well.
