Our responsiblity is to share...since kindergarten we have been taught this...I didn't know that this could be so easy to do. I shared a photo with someone who shared it with others...a simple photo in my mind...I also have shared, as often as i could, some of the thoughts and moments in my life that i think about and feel...simply by writing them down..as so many of you who are reading this now do on a daily basis. I am struck with the idea that we, as humans, as spirits, have a great responsibility to each other...to come together and share how we think and feel...some people think this blog shit is just that...a waste of time on a computer in the coffee shop...well i say that ironically, in this age, it is something that is bringing us back to a central place of sympathy, compassion, sharing, telling, understanding that we have lost in this day and age..this day and age when things are too fast and we have forgotten the tribal mentality..the idea that we as humans need each other to listen and to talk and to share our trials and tribulations and through the wisdom, love and experience of others who have gone through similar things, we learn, we cope, we breathe..we understand that we are not alone, that we all are on the same planet in the same boat...we all have parents, we all brush our teeth, we all love and get hurt, we all cry (sometimes not enough) we all want to be good (some need to be better) we all laugh (some more than others) we all sleep (some can't as much as others) and we all hurt..(some more than others).....this is the fundamental basic core idea of why we are evolved beyond monkeys...(i like monkeys, don't get me wrong)...this blog serves as a platform of tribal means...a way to come together from all walks of life and share and believe and live through each other...a way to create and compel and share.
Thank you Amanda for reminding me how important it is to share.
