No wrongs or right with freedom of expression
IN RESPONSE to David Harris (QT 20/01), that particular incident with the tennis ball had great meaning to my very close friend of about 50 years.
Squash had an upsurge through our university days and the ladies' squash fixtures were historically very significant in the '70s and '80s.
Anyone who has gone from constantly playing squash to the occasional tennis match such as my friend immediately recognised what I was referring to.
David quotes James 4:16. This is interesting because in the previous verses it refers to people who are boasting about what they are going to do in the future.
His reference to Hamlet has great meaning for me. Both my friend and I studied Hamlet.
In rhetorical terms, methinks you misunderstand me.
Creativity is something we all espouse; whether it is styles of writing, styles of expression, painting for the Ipswich Show (I cannot wait), craft, having our say, story-telling or whatever.
As with painting, there is no right or wrong - just however I want to paint (deepest apologies to the art teachers who will not agree).
