Being one amoung about 8 billion, I don't particularly stand out, which is nice. It would be cool if we all 8 billion could sing, 'Out of Control ' together some day at a live show ! THAT, apposed to just 'being' out of control... Why not ?! Can we do a live show hologram in space large enough for a nighttime hemisphere to view ? Just a thought. "What a fucked up world it is too " ( far too often, but not always, thankfully, thankfully ). More about me ? ....Something about me ? I am at a point in my life somewhere btwn birth and death. I can tell you my birth was about 53 years back but am not entirely sure when my death, or some closer to the moment might argue...'re-birth', might happen. " The end is not as far as the start ".
Lucky and unlucky to travel a fair amount. Most work related, but a bit of time in btwn allows for some recreation. That takes many forms from hiking and jogging to drinking and occasionally whatever is associated with drinking. I am frequently melancholy but def not sad, luckily. Philosophical, love space, planets, stars and suspect we might find our way there collectively, at some point.
I wonder a lot but just as often pulled back into a real appreciation for a good life. I am very comfortable being alone in crowds but deeply value the times when I am not. Some of my best moments have been alone on isolated desert trails, running.
It's where I enhanced my appreciation of different Native cultures in North America. From Native art to spiritualism, having experienced a few truly surreal moments in their realm, some welcoming and some not. It's interesting at times. Beyond interesting really. I invite 'their' company and hope they either like me or at least accept me.
I know how that sounds. I live in the day to day world of work and responsibilities. But I also know that when entering these territories, if it is not done with appreciation and reverence, it will be a very difficult and possibly a dangerous journey. Spirits and guardians exist in these spaces. Communicate with them, ask permission and listen intuitively to the replies. They carried me, joined me, on some of these isolated runs, but they also smacked me for being arrogant and making wrong assumptions.
The replies may come at the most surprising moments, or, maybe not at all. It's amazing when it happens. Isolation in outdoor space creates connectivity with everything that exists and exited, in that space. Being alone in a crowd can too oddly enough if one remains relatively calm and aware. It's amusing to me that I note these things. Not sure why I have, but hope it is interesting.
Finally for now, a very strange, I now admit, sense of humour. So be it. It's not for everyone.
BIG U2 fan. Important influence at each stage of life. Always looking forward to the next event....cheers.
