A blog about whatever randomosity my fevered mind conceives.

Behind the curtain…

I can make no apologizes for the constantly fragmented thoughts that spill from my mind, for I am what I am and I do what I do to keep the crazy outside instead of in.

I can spend an entire day locked in debates with myself about one casual topic or another, for it is very easy for me to see all sides to an argument and harder for me to commit (at times) to which shore of belief I actually belong on. However, when dealing with any subject that I am personally passionate about I have little qualms about stating my mind and standing up for what I believe in.

I love the idea of sharing my ideas with strangers, while sharing with those I care most about (and those who care most about me) unnerves me for some strange reason. I also love the ability to see, if only briefly, into the minds of others who are swimming through the same turbulent seas of life with different eyes.

When I write I most often choose to look at the world from perspectives I am least comfortable with; the drug addict, the beggar, the zealot; because I already know my own story, but I do not yet know theirs.

I believe that each of us is the center of our own private universe… this just happens to be mine.

  1. I believe you’re 100% correct! And true empathy IS being able to see things through others eyes. It builds tolerance and understanding. Of others, and ourselves.

    Very nicely expressed here, this really stood out for me today (as I’ve already read WAY too much here!)

    Have a terrific weekend

  3. I can’t believe I wasn’t following you till now! YIKES!

    Now that that’s done. I LOVE YOUR PAGE. This is so cool, I’m surprised I didn’t stop by here before! I love how you choose to look at the world from a different perspective, it’s always so hard for me to do that… Whenever I try, I draw up a blank. Meh. Progress is yet to be made. πŸ˜›

    • haha, I thought you were following all along… shows how much I know! And thank you, thank you, thank you!!! I’m going to get a big ego if I keep hanging out here so much, hehe.
      I don’t know why, but I’ve always looked at things from multiple perspectives… even my own life, though, its harder to be impartial with yourself. I’m so glad you’re following now πŸ™‚

      • Even I thought I was! WordPress is weird sometimes!

        You deserve to have a big ego, my friend. You’re absolutely amazing!

    • WoW!
      Seriously, I got stuck at WoW… my brain doesn’t even know how to process such a huge compliment. Let’s try… thank you very much sir!

      • Well I do have to say– the thing I like most is your addiction to being open in front of strangers. I think words are the pulse in the heart, and the beating drum of life itself.

        March 22, 2012 at 3:03 pm

      • Brilliantly said… I’m going to have to commit that to memory.
        Your blog is pretty damn great too, as I’m only recently finding out… I need to set aside some time to really catch myself up there.
        Thank you (again)!

        March 22, 2012 at 3:10 pm

      • I really want to move the blog in the direction of using words to tell the stories of people who can not tell their own stories.

        I’m super big into self harm awareness (noticing the TWLOHA) on my header. I suppose this is the key issue. Also, the other authors and I are Christians. We don’t want to waste our lives arguing with people about our beliefs, or squabbling about how good “we” are. Instead we want to really focus on helping others, and loving people who really need it.

        I also write lots about writing (a good self help.) I’d like to start reading your blog more too. I don’t really need the time. Just the motivation. It’s always fun to meet new writers and make new friends– but there’s also a lot of effort that goes into it. πŸ˜‰

        As for your blog– i’m hooked.

        March 22, 2012 at 3:16 pm

      • I’m quite big on looking through the eyes of strangers myself… I think it’s important to walk in unfamiliar shoes from time to time, it makes us better people.
        I don’t really have a theme for my blog… I didn’t have a clue what it was going to be when I started it, and I still don’t have a clue now; it’s basically just a place where I can experiment with my writing and connect with other writers. I greatly enjoy that part of things; the meeting, hehe.

        March 22, 2012 at 3:31 pm

      • & thank you for following my blog too. πŸ™‚

        March 22, 2012 at 3:03 pm

      • Cheers! πŸ™‚

    I nominated you for the Versatile Blogger Award. While I’m fully aware that a lot of the writers I follow don’t play these games, I wanted to show my appreciation for what your writing does for me. So there you have it…Tag! You’re It!!

    • awww thank you… I’m still trying to catch up on your blog and I always start at the older stuff and work my way up to the new stuff so I’ve not got to that post yet!

  12. Hey you. I know you’re probably busy enjoying the summer and you’re probably not going to read this for a while, but I’m writing this anyway, mostly because I miss you but also because I’m semi bored. It’s okay that you’re not here now, just know that you’re missed A LOT and I’m just hoping that you’ll come back once summer’s over because the weather’s gonna be shitty. πŸ˜›

    Take care. Love you.
