Tuesday Chatter Weekly


Merry Christmas and welcome to the Tuesday Chatter Cafe, a buzzing place to chat and smile. The coffee’s hot and laced with cinnamon! So have a seat and enjoy the camaraderie!  Be kind to one another because what happens here doesn’t stay here.

And while we’re at the cafe, why not introduce yourself to-

    “We are what we pretend to be, so we must be careful about what we pretend to be.” ― Kurt Vonnegut Jr. I appear to be on a roll with good pieces this Christmas week.

      Thank you so much for sharing, Reena. What an excellent read. I rarely get to Medium, unfortunately. There are some excellent writers there, several of which I know from beBee and LinkedIn.

    For one thing, I LOVE the word capricious.

    For another, I watched Prince William wed the lovely Kate back in 2011. I had to, seeing as how mom woke me up in the middle of the night to watch Prince Charles wed the lovely Lady Di. Now, I’m a dude’s dude. But hells if I don’t love the romance of it all just the same. Please don’t scrapheap my merry bachelors rep!

    Love your blog.

        I do. Abundantly.

        I am a Bronx born boy who has read “The Remains of the Day” countless times, because it soothes me to wander into a world I do not understand. And the words, they imprison me in a most kind kind way.

        I so love your blog.

    Capricious is a wonderful word. Like how you used it to start your poem. I am not sure I completely agree with KV, Jr. I do think we need to be careful about what we pretend to be…but it’s not who we really are just what people may see.

      Thank you, Patricia and I like the way you analyzed the quote.

    I have learned that success is a matter, not of avoiding caprice, but of channeling its fluidity into something useful to the world.

      Yes, I agree. Sudden change, sometimes without reason, sparks our creative senses. Thank you for your relevant comment.
