Robinson Crusoe is a true story of a man marooned on an Island and for the most part alone and in despair. He needed to un-learn and then learn things to survive. During that process, he came to appreciate the thought of the company of another Human Being
COME HITHER AND LET ME ADORN THEE....
You can drive people toward you or away form you. Yes, you do have that power. if you drive them away, you will miss all of their company and contribution. How does that benefit you..? if you would have them gravitate toward you, then you can share and learn from each other
I WILL SEE YOU WHEN WE MEET
When we post and comment, it is not necessary that we agree....not at all. I have come to respect and admire some people who I interact with that speak-up and risk being known. We both gain from the process..
FIRST TIME FOR EVERYTHING
I learn as I go. The premise is very simple. I have never been here before. I also do not know everything thus necessitating that I journey, seek, and pursue things. some of that is worthy to be shared....
WHAT DO YOU BRING TO THE PARTY...?
Manners, courtesies, sensitivities, arguing without offense but for the subject sake is something we are all capable of. What happens every once in a while is that we are tempted to Judge and that leads to anger. Anger is not easily understood and causes others to defend themselves. The real interaction is then lost...Make allowances for that.
EXCUSE MY FAUX-PAS PLEASE....
Also excuse people who are trying to find out things and are sloppy about it. In time they will discover and refine themselves. Know this so that you don't react.
LEND ME YOUR EAR....AND THAT IS SUFFICENT
There are times that I am asked just to listen and not speak. I can do that. there are times that I want to share or that someone wants to share with me...I say come forward. How can I get to know you if we do not come together..?
LET'S GET TOGETHER....OK..?
So, share your thoughts, feelings, ideas, beliefs, concerns, fears and questions and I will do the same. Of course, only do this if you feel safe, and trust the other person enough to do so. Not everyone is worthy of the Pearls of others.....
Helen Keller, who was deaf, dumb, and blind wanted so much to join our world because hers was not complete. Please look for the best in everyone you meet because the not so best lurks in the shadows and we all have those shadows....
