Writer's Block: Since you've been gone

Do you keep in touch with any of your exes on LiveJournal or other social networking sites? When an ex friends you, do you usually friend them back? Why or why not?

I do not.  I have one "ex" whom i lost track of about forty-seven years ago.  Her lifestyle was not conducive to leaving forwarding addresses, and i have no personal reason for wanting to contact her.  I did (and do) think it would be beneficial for her son to meet and talk to her.
So far as i know he has not tried to contact her or has been unsuccessful in his attempts.  She could be dead, as she would be nearly seventy years old now.and her lifestyle was also not conducive to a long life.  She could have matured and had a productive and happy life, i hope she did.  She was very young to be a wife and a mother and a divorced woman.

Wikkileaks Reflections

Here are thought about diplomacy.
Tact is not dishonesty.
If you can't say what you want to say
without lying to somebody
or about somebody.
maybe you don't need to say it.
At least that's what my mother told me.

Jesus said Love your enemies.
Gandhi said don't lie to them
Don't be unfair to them.
Don't try to get more from them than is just.
Never leave them with just two choices.

If i can distinguish tact from deception,
why should i fear  information leaks?
If i cannot distinguish tact from deception,
why would i chose diplomacy as a profession?
Maybe i should be in a "home" somewhere?
