We have here that very rare treat--a beautiful July day in Scotland. Pardon me if I rush out to be in it instead of writing any more today.
I will leave you with a thought: that you cannot be in a relationship with a person you do not know. If you think a person interesting, talk to (and about) him or her with a courtesy and friendly reserve that is appropriate between almost strangers. Do not permit the fantasies of your teeming imagination to block out the observations of your reason. The person you are talking to is him- or herself and not your own creation. Truth is what is, said Saint Thomas Aquinas. Stay rooted in reality.
