Old fashioned virtue?
Since I was a very young girl I have admired graciousness. I don't think I knew what it was but I remember paying attention to the difference between grouchiness and graciousness. I did wonder later on if it was a character trait for nobility since it was often labeled that way.

Now in middle age I admire it even more. It shares space in a list that includes politeness. Very cheap insurance along the way to non violent being. Learned while contemplating the steps from reacting to responding during ordinary days. An antidote to snark/sarcasm.

Falstaff was my tutor      a thoughtful blog including thoughts on character


  1. Peso,
    I wrote a blog post on graciousness for you. Rather, it wrote itself because I hadn't imagined treating the subject that way.
    By the way, I like your work.
    Minnesota is lucky to have you.

  2. God, I can't believe it. My auto spell check on my i-touch misspelled your name.

  3. thank you Brad for your kind words - and don't worry about misspelling - pseko is an acronym ( or a Finnish word for some type of cholesterol).
