George Orwell

    GREAT reply/viewpoint, Patty. I liked the quote because of the contradictory thinking between one or the other (and I’ve been there on more than one occasion)…and then having to choose and/or accept both…throwing in the triple thinking approach never occurred to me…thanks for making that a significant consideration…and THANK YOU for reading by blog…xo

    I understand this… the hardest part is when you feel you have to choose one or the other… triple thinking occurs then!! 🙂 good quote! xo
