My father had so many sayings that he repeated often through the years, ones like, “Do as I say, not as I do.”
For this one, he was ahead of his time, as it’s the mantra for many social media practitioners. I think he wrote this and forgot to put it into his pocket. Well he didn’t say this, but he lived it: always uncut and off-the-cuff.

One thought on “At Least My Father Tried”
Yeah Ken, wow… that is much more profound than it may seem at first glance. Listening without defending prevents the impluse to then attack (think or speak offensively) out of a perceived need to defend something. This is very similar to a really good mantra: “In my defenselessness, my safety lies.” As does my sense of peace…
Thanks for sharing. I enjoy our shared love of philosophy. 🙂
