"Plain speaking" speaks clearly and makes its points to the teleological, ontological and theological situations of life.
Good work, Poet!

|On the public transit today, the driver was querying a young woman of 17. He assumed she was in the "Opportunity Program"(for highschool drop-outs)because she was going in the opposite direction of the highschool. She was attending the jr. college here, taking her preliminary subjects so she could transfer to the state college. Her goal was to be a Vet. "Why?" he asked, "You could be a Vet assistant and it would be a lot easier, of course you wouldn't make as much money." She didn't respond, a quizzical look on her face. "Why should she limit herself?" was my response. Oh the wasted
potential in accepting mediocraty. This attitude comes from those who own dreams were sacrificed to neccessity. Fine write, Paul! Lin

|I like this. It is simple and truth, Paul. It's all about navigating onward anyway, why buy a sports car if you can't wring it out every once in awhile. I can't drive 55!! Poetry and writing and just plain damn living needs to break the speed limit! Thanks for Plain Speaking, Paul.

|Nowt so bold or fundamental as brass tacks, and upon such are the riches of hearts and minds founded... how can anything be mundane that Allen Bennett touches or brings to life?! Have you heard his reading of The Wind In The Willows??!! Absolutely priceless and is the most precious thing (almost!!) I have ever heard. I would certainly have that in my Desert Island Disc collection, anyways. And, aye lad, you is about as ordinary and mundane as your fellow countrymen, AB and Ted Hughes... any higher and you'd be Rabbie himself!! Bit of a Hovis write, this... Gold Hill in Shaftesbury is, for me, on home turf, but ain't quite so brass-monkies, I assume! :)) Nice one, Wallace LOL Grommit xx PS... You turnin into Robbie Williams (new biog pic!) ??|

|Wonderful picture! I wonder how much one can read into a picture and how many different views. To me, this picture is inspiring, it's like looking into the brightness of the future, from where the present is dark. It offers a sense of hope. This is the way I read into this picture. Wonderful picture!

|Ah, yes, indeed, we all like to dump on our parents . . . er . . . mundane ways, not always for the bettermment of those which critique the old. What is mundane to some is exciting to others. Ain't life just wonderful?|

|The streets talk of other times and were built to last; not well lit as the lives that walked them eons ago did not shine but cast shadows on the mundane.|

|Outstanding write, Paul. I, as well, care very little for the mundane and wonder about those who chose to dwell within it. Perhaps they were the undiagnosed depressed souls of their time, or maybe just dull people who lacked the inspiration of dreams to light their path.

|Excellent Paul! One has to wonder if those who penned the idioms actually lived by them;-)

Why call a spade anything else but a spade !
Philosophical and street wise write Paul !
