  1. What about ghoulish cupcakes? Or doughnuts frosted with ashes of the dead?

  2. ….. I think the “effect” of shallowness as in the effect of light is what he means in his pathological test list, but you are more of a word moulder than I, so if you insist I might change it after reading your latest blog ?

      Dave, you had me so confused! I read your comment twice and wondered “I think this sir read my latest blog and is calling me shallow…” But then I realized you were referring your own post. Haha ๐Ÿ™‚ Although your interpretation is more insightful and very plausible, I think he is referring to shallow or blunted “affect” which is a trait common in personality disorders such as psychopathy (now often referred to as antisocial personality disorder), histrionic pd and sometimes narcissistic pd. It means that the person is deficient in expressing true emotions, and their outward emotions are often fake, egocentric or maybe even over exaggerated since they lack depth of feeling. Think Patrick Bateman in American Psycho. He was a very successful character, wasn’t he?

    dont talk about flaws when you think you are diamond…
    you’ll do well.
    i would love to read something on nature from you… ๐Ÿ™‚

  5. Do you write reviews on poetry?

    Better a diamond with a flaw than a perfect pebble. – twisted!

    very twisted! ๐Ÿ™‚

    • Fountains said

      Twisted! How so? ๐Ÿ™‚

        to me, it’s very condescending
        like a pebble is not good enough
        and if i had a choice
        i would always go for perfection ๐Ÿ™‚
        but that’s just me

        this quote seems to be saying that because you’re precious/pretty/classy/whatever you can have flaws… that’s human i guess, but it’s not preferable, at least not in my books.
        A pebble maybe just a pebble, but that doesn’t make it any less than a diamond. It’s us who give it a lower status. Perspective, I guess.

      • Fountains said

        I think you are reading far too much into this proverb. ๐Ÿ˜› I understood it as: be as valuable/great as one can be despite one’s flaws/mistakes, for it’s better than mediocre/common perfection.

      • v v v v v said

        did you really mean this? – “better than mediocre/common perfection”

        gosh! ๐Ÿ˜›

        i love diamonds by the way, but they are over-rated.
        i still would choose a perfect pebble.
        but in the same way i would choose a perfect diamond.
        so, what i mean is perfection is better. ๐Ÿ™‚

      • Fountains said

        Yes, yes I did. I wholeheartedly believe in making very, very loud mistakes. And I don’t believe in perfection, and if you do – I might venture to say you’re going to be sorely disappointed some day. ๐Ÿ˜›

      • v v v v v said

        i am living in that predicament

        but one day i will be satisfied…
        that’s my faith ๐Ÿ™‚

      • Fountains said

        I might also say to never just settle for satisfaction, but unadulterated contentment. ๐Ÿ˜›

  7. v v v v v said

    Better unadulterated contentment (with a flaw) than settling for satisfaction. โ€“ Fountains Proverb

    ๐Ÿ˜€ okay?

    you see what i did there?
    unadulterated contentment = perfection…

  9. Thinking of you, much as my mum thinks of me when something happens in London, I remembered you talking of Boston. – x

    • Fountains said

      Fortunately, or unfortunately, I’ve not kept connections in the city so my selfish world, at least, is still in tact. I appreciate your thoughts greatly.

say something to me.
