my Gratitude to you…..

Advertisements

you know that brittany spears song, “oops, i did it again?” Well, think of it when you read the first few lines,

oops, i did it again.
i opened my mouth,
offended a friend…

OK enough of that.

PICTURE IT

i ran (literally, with a shopping cart) into a friend, one whom i’ve not seen in a few months.

“oh my god, drew. hey. i’ve been really worried about you. i’ve been meaning to call you.”

i look at him with a puzzled expression and ask “really?”
but,the voice decided to take it to the next level.

i chuckle and ask why he said that.

AND BEFORE he could answer, i stop him and ask,

“why people (myself included) who have been out of touch, that is the first thing they say?

when in reality, if you are truly concerned…:

 

YOU COULD HAVE

picked up the phone

YOU COULD HAVE

sent me an e-mail

YOU COULD HAVE

gone to any of the BILLION social networking sites of which i am a member and left a message

YOU COULD HAVE

skyped me (it’s always on)

OR YOU COULD HAVE SIMPLY
gotten in your car and driven over?

so, i ask you again, just how concerned were you?

just how concerned am i?

where does the offense part come in? well, his wife just sent me a text saying that he didn’t like being put on the spot.

all i did was ask a question.

so….

oops, i did it again.
i opened my mouth,
offended a friend…

 

but what i’ve learned, i need to make sure i don’t say the same…

🙂

here is part three…

 

60s TV BATMAN REUNION: Oct. 8, 2011 Adam West, Burt Ward, Lee Meriwether 1/3, 2/3 waiting for 3/3

Hook, this is for you!

but I don’t know what politics is

And I awake to the thumping of some tribal music coming from the pub across the way. No biggie! Then this scream. It is the same woman, every bloody night she exits the pub and screeches. she is beyond pissed. I wonder if she will have a massive hangover. I’ll watch BEING HUMAN: US. And ramble on until sleep revisits.

I am beginning to make my preparations for my return trip to back VA. I purchase my ticket on Wednesday. I am kinda looking forward to the 18.5 hour trip…kinda. I set up a tumblr account to “photo” blog it along the way. I tell you this. As soon as I return to HR(Hampton Roads), I am heading to the beach. I have missed the sounds of the waves lapping at the shore, the taste of the salt spray, it will just be nice to be back at my centre of power. Jejejeje

I think I am going to try to combine a few draft posts into one. Ready? Set! Go!

Had the oddest dream. I was sitting on a split rail fence, eating a kebab of roasted veggies and a huge crocodile jumps up and snatches my food, leaving me completely intact.

¤¤
I admit, I have this “fear” of returning. So much has changed and I fear that those changes have separated me from the past. Does that make any sense?
I fear a loss of freedom. I fear a loss of self. But, how can that be? Perhaps not a “loss” of self but a “submersion” of self.
But aren’t these the “feelings” one usually experiences when one returns “home?” oh my, “home” is not a building, it is a place where you’ve left a heart print

Confession time…
I DO NOT UNDERSTAND HUMAN EMOTION. Whoa now waitaminute… Hummm, maybe what I don’t understand are the complexities, the nuances of human emotion. I often tell people that I am emotionally distant (which really isn’t true). I believe that I just process stimuli differently, weigh the helpful and less than helpful outcome (as best as I can, with all available data) and thus react differently. But most times, I follow… (I don’t know what to call it…my “inner voice??”
I have also learned to take certain emotional cues from those around me. And sometimes that just confuses the hell out of me! enough about that…for now

If we fill our hours with regrets over the failures of yesterday, and with worries over the problems of tomorrow, we have no today in which to be thankful ”

My Lord Phoenix, soon to be 31…Ahhh, to be 30 anything again. Any plans? And a 6 month anniversary coming up…

and finally

aquarius

We may feel as if anything is possible today as the Moon’s entry into futuristic Aquarius encourages us to cut our ties to the past. Alluring Venus forms a cooperative sextile to radical Uranus, attracting us to new experiences. Venus, too, enters Aquarius, further detaching our desires from our emotions. Anticipation can set us on edge and a lack of self-restraint may empower us to overreach our limits and take risks we might normally pass by.

peace and long life

but I don’t know what politics is

Son: “Daddy, I have to write a special report for school, but I don’t know what Politics is.”

Father: “Well, let’s take our home as an example. I am the bread-winner, so let’s call me Capitalism. Your Mum is the administrator of money, so we’ll call her Government. We take care of your need, so let’s call you The People. We’ll call the maid the Working Class and your brother we can call The Future. Do you understand son?”

Son: “I’m not really sure, Dad. I’ll have to think about it.”

That night awakened by his brother’s crying, the boy went to see what was wrong. Discovering that the baby had seriously soiled his diaper, the boy went to his parents’ room and found his mother sound asleep. He went to the maid’s room, where, peeking through the keyhole, he saw his father in bed with the maid. The boy’s knocking went totally unheeded by his father and the maid, so the boy returned to his room and went back to sleep.

The next morning he reported to his father.

Son: “Dad, now I think I understand what Politics is.”

Father: “Good son! Can you explain it to me in your own words?”

Son: “Well Dad, while Capitalism is screwing the Working Class, Government is sound asleep, the People are being completely ignored and the Future is full of Shit.”
