... is a piss-poor method of communication. Especially the written word, which suffers from a lack of ability to nuance (tone, inflection, body language), and also doesn't have the advantage of instant feedback to detect and correct misunderstandings.

Even with the leverage of nuance and real-time feedback, spoken communication really sucks for communicating, too. It's weird that we humans seldom realize this.

A sage person once said that if we really understood one another, there would be no argument. (At least I understood him to be a sage person...)

Where does the parsley, rosemary and thyme fit in?


Get your facts first, then you can distort them as you please.

That goes in the turkey dressing - I was mind smudging, not cooking...

Sage = creole. Not Mexican. Not all beans! I use other appropriate herbs with Mexican I promise. We have fantastic Mexican grocery stores and restaurants.
I also make a fabulous vegetarian Sage and Onions gravy. I love sage but don't use it often. When I do......wow.
If I'm just making beans, not ethnic, standard in onion, bay leaf, organo, thyme, maybe some cumin.

When seeking sage advice just Go ask Olyve, I think she'll know grin

And so the rest of us are stuck trying to figure out what this thread is about?

Existentialist vagueposting?

Language is the best we got, sport. Until you're ready to do the Vulcan mind-meld.

Culinary white sage is not typically used for smudging.

Western sagebrush has been used by the First People for millennia and is one of the four sacred medicines.

Perhaps Loggy's "sage man" is similar to my Reefer Man

If Olyve had only spoken up earlier, it would have been forwarned...

I guess my point was made, then. At least you know (or suspect) that something wasn’t adequately communicated!

Imagine wondering that about everything you read…

Purrhaps this is suggesting that the round-table doesnt provide enough diversity to encourage communication through thread drift. I purpose a new thread in the mold of Schlack's word association game, except that instead of using just a single word, whatever an individual associates with a post on that thread would be valid. As psychoanalysts know it is all about what the clients associations are with a particular item.

It would be fair to have queries about what the association link is to avoid disorienting intentional non-sequiters leading to offtopic as opposed to official Hijack as that is actually the topic.

This will surely reduce confusion about the topic of the thread drift thread.

Not sure I get your drift...

Hey! Maybe art is one of the enhancers of communication?
