		Meistara Thorhalla and I were discussing that just last
night; "manners" are essential to "Peer-like qualities," yet it seems
sometimes that so many people are clueless about the whole subject.
		It also doesn't help the matter when others interpret what
they hear in a hostile light; I myself have been guilty of assuming
hostile intent on people's part where none was intended.

		We all learn from ducks with water rolling off their
backs; I've learned from both my Peers that a kind response to a rude
remark can take the fire right out of a situation.

		It's great to be authentic.
		It's greater to temper authenticity with reality.
		-Faremanne de Vere
