There's something about poetry that saves me… ~ Martin Espada
I think most of us spend our lives walking that balance beam somewhere between the black and the white. Brief and well captured, Mary.
Right Ginny - thanks!
Interesting gray areas!
Thank you Leovi.
Life is a desert for those who see it black and white--or maybe a moonscape would be a better analogy. Short and sharp, Mary (and true.)
Yes, that is a good analogy. :o) Thanks Joy.
A bit of grey makes things interesting
And most of them are on that guy's sweater. Has he never heard of laundry soap?Very little is ever truly black and white. Ever.

Thank you Berowne. Not wise enough to answer your quiz though.
Very wise ... there is always going to be grey & hopefully lots of colour too!
Yes, very good. Not just greys.
And I say, thank goodness for that...too much black and white makes us too set in our ways...well done...Best for the New Year!!
Thank you Lyn. All the best to you as well.

Yes, an infinite variety.

Thanks Martine. :o)
oh indeed there have...i think though we often see the past much clearer the further we get from it....
I think that's true sometimes, but othertimes I think we tend to forget bits.
Amazing. That is so true. I like your poetic touch.
So fitting! Grey. That shady offspring of black and white will always be around!
Yes...which is why I have to keep coloring my hair. ;-)
So true..life is never just black and white.
Oh, excellent. I love this one.
Thank you Mama Z!
