Love 25
Adjudicate
(Elfje and haiku)

Inconsistency
Seems to
Be the distinguished
Hallmark of all earthly
Humanity

any given day
love becomes a deck shuffled
for definition

“The heart of a man is made to reconcile contradictions.”
-David (Home) Hume (1711-1776)
Scottish philosopher and historian

(Note: He changed the spelling of his name in 1734,
because of the fact that his surname Home,
pronounced Hume, was not known in England.)
adjudicate: verb; make a formal judgment or decision
about a problem or disputed matter.

    • Reminds me of on of the Asian countries where you are not allowed to jay-walk (heavy fines) in the middle of the street unless you are 100 or older. Then you can cross where ever you want and traffic has to stop.

      I didn’t know there was a ‘beyond the age of judgement’? Does someone else have to care for you and pay your bills? I would think that if you can still do that…like the gent in my neighborhood who is over 90 and still driving his car… you should still have to follow some rules.

      • My father in law was a magistrate and had to finish when he was 70 because he was beyond the age of judgement so we sort of borrowed it as an excuse for doing silly things 😀

        • Oh…like forced retirement. Makes perfect sense now. Though with the economics here I don’t think most of us (not in law or politics) can retire until we are in our 80’s or beyond. That being said isn’t or wasn’t there a European country where folks were retiring at age 50 and now are in a financial fix trying to pay them all. Only those with huge inheritances or in good businesses for themselves who may or may not have earned their money (if they choose) seem to be able to ‘retire’ and spend their money on more than just necessities. But I shall venture to stay away from all things political. 😉

          • You have this absolutely correct. We are retired now on a small pension that covers necessities and not much more but work is difficult to find at our age. I had no idea people worked till 80 anywhere. Totally out of touch with the world but fully in touch with the earth is probably the best way to describe me.
