Excuses are interesting ....
A passionate sincerity is sometimes employed as an excuse for muddled effectiveness.
A dispassionate point of view is sometimes employed as a means of not acknowledging complicity ... an excuse for keeping our hands clean.
Without the passion, no one gets off the dime.
Without a patient dispassion and investigation, problems seldom find a fruitful solution.
One or the other alone is self-serving and full of excuses.
Excuses are a good warning sign. Excuses seek control.
How well does 'control' actually accord with reality?
Where there are excuses, something is out of kilter. Life doesn't make excuses. Should we?
