But before that...being over familiar...maybe, boundaries are not always obvious...

Nobody seems to give a hoot that I'm a little different.

    Elaine Edwards on good days you make me laugh on not so good days you help me smile...I appreciate that with all my heart in 
    this moment on a difficult day

    Aaaaaand then I may have spoilt it but ahhh well after reading his interview and remembering watching telly as a kid...I always felt different as a kid. I often struggled to fit in, ialso experiencing fitting in with ease with the right people at the right time...and with myself when like today my body seems in strife...

Smiling as I read that. And feeling affection and probably being an annoying punctuation deviant, partly due to not being well at the moment...a rambler in normal circumstances exacerbated by feeling close to possible death, without worrying it may happen this time because when it finally does it'll be a good day to die...oops I didn't mean to tangent...I grew up with you on my telly we loved Star Trek night and the tradition of the new ones are gonna die...but the accepting differences was a subtlety I didn't get as a child and it may have helped me form into a person who accepts others for who they are not any labels that may apply to them, even then the labels I do like are funny, authentic, loving, generous, talented, unexpected, delightful. I like people who have those labels used about them often but difficult, annoying, stubborn, able to drive you up the wall etc tend to only be the ones closest to us who love us for that side of us as well and us them and I don't know why I am saying this but I feel good saying it. I may not be saying what I think I am though depending on how well I have managed to articulate my I could go off on more tangents so I will leave it there...I may be learning or it could be too late already ;)
This is usually the point I say sorry for being me and I think that is a habit I may be ready to give up :)

  • Elaine Edwards I may come over as a rambling crazy woman sometimes...I've learnt to love that about myself....I am willing to make myself look foolish to touch another persons soul....and hope they don't have me for inappropriate soul touching...I gave that up a few years ago but I don't mind the celebrity dream lovers visiting my astral planes or some such euphemism...mmm I do get interesting dreams...besides don't think the soul can touch inappropriately only the personality can do that because where the soul is not influenced by our stories, all is connected. Even the bad guys have no personality at that level and may not appear to have one but there is such a lot of fear of their own darkness in the way of them connecting to it...I reckon anyway and who knows who has got it right or close but I think most of us who are not sucked in by the darkness of harsh experience of deeper layers of fear....those of us who learn to love much more than fear...

    On sharing this...some conventions are made to change but resist it all the same...seems about right to me...the next chapter is all about us writing out scripts or whatever happens and working towards harmony and the time we stopped playing with all the negative energy which results in the idea that our differences make us enemies, it merely makes us different, it is hatred that makes us enemies....hatred and fear which is at the root of hatred of difference. How silly is that. All we have to do is start accepting we can all be nice and we can all be arse-holes (said in a very English posh accent to soften or maybe harshen the blow of the arse word, not the wind in the willings) and the more we treat each other with respect the more we tend to behave without having to force ourselves in a nice and loving manner, enjoying life with others around all supported and supportive. 

    We have had societies like that before and they were not boring like Demolition Man, was it? Sly gets to be an old fashioned cop in a weirdly innocent society. Or whatever films have planted seed of doubt that we can live in harmony, while also planting seeds of hope and overcoming all odds no matter how preposterous they seemed to be our psyche accepts norms it learns from fact or fiction, it isn't fussy, it can also learn a few things from advertising or the news and history written from a one sided angle, not everything we learn can be trusted as really really the truth...if you listen very carefully life will tell you what feels true and what has a question mark over it and it all has that at times but it is okay. Life is an adventure and fun can be had the same day life reminds you it can end.
