She had such a sense of fairness. She spoke out against anything that happened to anyone, not just herself, that offended her judgement about what was fair. I admired that in her but wondered how much conflict it had caused her in her childhood home with her siblings. As an adult, it turned her into an activist and a whistleblower, neither role easy or conflict free.

  1. Fair is what we all should be. It makes me think deeply about relationships with others and fun in the fall of the year. To be fair within our relationships we must strike a viable balance between giving and taking. Balance is the key to fair relationships that persevere troubles.

  2. Fair, fleeting flesh seems to attract dozens. I am a magnet for the clinically insane, when I am insane myself. Oh, fair, fair skin, you rouse with pustules yet you still find a simple, complexity known as rareness. Oh, sweetness, I have smelt the rose and I have been bitten by the thorns. But can thorns bite and snap with their brightness? If they can, it surely isn’t fair.
