is he just being a friend ..spin doctoring ...or LYING
i had some interesting thoughts today visiting with people in the 2D world...and the 3D world..... it was about blogging Truth and fiction privacy and sharing...
non sequitors eh
this could become a problem of logic called "on the horns of a dilemma".....if A then not B...if B then not A....... what to do ...what to do ?
then there's that old Eastern philosophy of BOTH...that could really be a "hook em horns" moment
the need for privacy has become even more important in a world that bombards us thru every kind of media with messages....and in many ways "the message has become the massage"....spin doctoring and sound bites that are created to shock our brains into falling out of our own personal space into that of the massagers domain...whether it's print media or any other
they sometimes leave us with the monsterous feeling that we are not OK...worthy... safe....and especially not capable to reveiw and appraise the sincerity of others...especially in the 2D world....
IE: HE'S SO NICE...BUT MAYBE HE'S A 600LB GORILLA
the ontological proof is certainly not available over a monitors screen is it ????????
but perhaps it is.. . ..and a great facilitator of that is sharing
not sharing your social security number or material about oneself that is dangerous....but sharing oneself.....ones essence ....
i've never completely understood the reasons not to share...what can be gained from it....if the sharing could cause someone to have a reluctance to continue sharing so what....no time wasted with someone who wouldn't like you if they did meet you in person... ..if you're an apple...and they like oranges...they will speed quickly to the orange crates and leave a space for apple lovers around you
i have this attitude of
NO RISK NO REWARD...
.it's has had me flying in the face of uncertainty for many years now....sometimes striking out...... sometimes rounding the bases for that all important home run
every morning while i meditate my first mantra is
all that means is take the key and unlock the doors....it doesn't mean that the screaming hordes are allowed to assail you....it just means you give them the chance to assail you....some primitive natives not well understood can be very nice...and if they're in print they can be ignored
take it from me they r usually "straw dogs". they only LOOK dangerous...
and even with their bluster...they may have something important to say between those F U's in their rants...LOL.....if you give them a chance....even if they're 600LBS gorillas.....look at Dennis Miller....he's made a career of it....LOL.....
Grantie brought really good reasons to
be very afraid
i'm excluding flamers in this piece..the cruel mean spirited people who take pleasure in bullying and cruelty just to watch people squirm
these last few weeks we have watched a cyberwar go on here...there have been people writing to illuminate injustices...people creating injustice...people like me trying to use humor to defuse injustice
people angry...for any number of reasons...because they've been personally attacked...demeaned...given time outs
people marginalized because of age...race...education...need i go on with this???
the Raccoon Wars were amusing....but where r all the interesting wonderful bloggers that were here a month ago
i'm sitting in the corner spooning up a 1/2 gallon of Rocky Road and worrying about my weight
wondering if the comments that identified women my age as losers needs any extra thought on my part
looking in the mirror and thinking maybe Botox would improve my appearance. brain and writing ability
wanting a little **remove this comment** ditty beside every comment so that i personally could send flamers into cyberhell
teaching my wee terrier to "SIC EM"
and missing...much to my surprise...people i've NEVER met in real life
and that due to my homebound situation i may never meet in real life
who'da thunk it???
I WANT THEM BACK!!!
ALL MY FRIENDS AND EVEN SOME OF THE FORMIDABLE FOES
the ones with opinions...opinions not like mine...opinions well considered and presented with candor and without mean spiritedness or rancor
.i have on-line friends to whom i've only grown closer for 10 years who live 1000's of miles away from me and even over the pond in countries far away
and the only crimes i can accuse them of is stealing my cyberbeer
so i'm now officially on a mission to bring back the atmosphere that brought me here and kept me here in the first place
I'm sick of this Rocky Road...i'm switchin' to Vanilla
passing out cones
please come back
i may fall flat on my face but i'm tryin'
