I love you all

who I know
in those rare instances
when I love myself

You are of greater worth
Than any point
Any argument to be won

You could be wrong
Or maybe I am
1000 times
Your worth to me
Would not diminish
I am yours, you are mine

You put up with me
I put up with you
Our group
is more than points of view

People are stronger than facts
Love is greater than truth
Points of logic pale beside
Little human acts

Divided by much space
Physical and ideological
Nonetheless we find our place
There is always a place for you
And one for a 3BILL

Beautious!

Thank you.

Cuts to the chase!

I can feel it.

Feels good!

Much light, well done with a solid wrap-up that really drives it/us home!

Here's a little Lou Reed from my basement. It was pretty much trashbin drivel until a buddy walked in and grabbed his drumsticks. It picked up a little from there. It wasn't just his drumming specifically that turned things up, it was more his presence, his place, our place...

Thanks

That's very good, I knew the song right away. Very good.

It does feel good.

It's easy to treat the person as the argument and nothing more, when engaged. That's fine for debate purposes, where the ideas are just fighting proxy war with the people.

Sometimes its to hell with the argument, they are a person. Even if they were all wrong, even deliberately wrong, they're still a whole person, with the 1% that's composed of ideas being... 1% and nothing more.
