Soft & gentle does the trick
- Presently, we're experiencing a very wintery cold snap - 'north winds
from the polar regions, they say. While I was out and about today, it
was extremely windy with horizontally driven snow / sleet managing its
way in and around my unprepared ears and face as I sought to stretch
the collar of my jacket over my head like an embarrassed and shy child.
It reminded me of one of my childhood school lessons which often passes
thru my mind while pondering over the adage `soft & gentle does the
trick' The Teacher set out to illustrate the varying weather
conditions and how we adapt to them. One caption showed a person
leaning and battling into a storm clutching at his long `Inspector
Colombo' like rain coat and the other caption showed the same guy,
smiling and walking tall while the sun shone down, carrying his coat
over his shoulder. The wind tried and failed, while the gentle sun
succeeded it's easy, really!!
