Persuasion or ...

One thing that I learned at a young age when I was disappointed about a relationship is that you can't force anything. This was from my Mother and it has stuck with me all these years. Manipulation is used by unscrupulous people to get what they want. One thing that really bothers me is Elder Abuse be it in the family or solicitors for causes political or otherwise.  
That being said it is time for me to 
(as I told my Boss at one point) to lighten up.

Crocus reminds me of Rural Churches in Alberta
