a little rant on the things that ill us all

The Social Virus is something that we (and as 'we' I'm referring the upright bipeds in the audience) all are afflicted with. This affliction causes us to change (nauseatingly so at times) our behaviors into some of the most queer and brilliant plumage in the animal kingdom .. you'll notice the expressed omission of minerals -- we're just not ready for that yet. These behaviors strike us all as odd and typical at the same time -- even when we're the sod displaying them. So, as a tribute to us, from time-to-time and a few times in between, enjoy some puffery and sardonic observations. And please, comment. We're all in this together.

Wisdom from the most likely of places...

When was the last time you sat down and listened to your best friend? And by 'listen' I'm referring the process of auditory recognition, understanding and reflection - to listen, we must be willing to hear.

My best friend has no idea that they hold the position. I know this because I didn't know it either. Strange how the obvious is often so damnedably obfuscated... another fun wrinkle in the experience of life.

The realization hit me as I listened ... for the first time in some time (I can be quite obtuse and even thick as an Ayn Rand novel sometimes - curses) and I'm sharing this because the impact is for everyone.

A simple communique became a platform and the platform became my realization; changed the way I view them instantly and for all ways.

Here's what was listened to:
"Support and love from friends and family often comes right when you need it most. I think this is one of the ways that God lets us know he's really there."

This is a proof. It was given and thereby created the basis for its interpretation. Why? Because it came precisely when I needed it most.

It's a big place out there. Take a friend.
