When physically bothered recently by sinus difficulties I called up a neighbor who had similar problems and asked if they were feeling it. The winds, pollens, gmo crops, grasses, spores, and molds build up at times and affect me along with others having a similar affliction. Checking with someone else at least lets me know I am not being singled out and what I'm going through is in the normal realm, somewhat.
My friend spent about 10 seconds saying they are always bothered (not really a real answer) and then spoke about dressing and looking well. Hardly the response I wanted.
Is it Florida? A bunch of loose ends gathered in one place? Or is it all over? Or am I just out of the loop, outside the circle of balance and harmony in human relations that offers healthy and helpful responses? Sometimes I receive a good response, often from a stranger, but I can't count on it.
Everyone is pushing beyond their scope, defending their turf, careful not to give up any ground, somewhat curious and needy but not willing to lose any control.
And while we quibble, not to sound paranoid, but I suspect the powers that be consolidate their position using confusion and red tape and doublespeak and allow the lowest levels of society to whittle away at what is left.
Oh, to find my way through this, with or without a friend. To find a way to get and stay on course and know that it is so. To find clarity and good vision in the middle of the fog. To see what is true amidst all the lies and compromises. That would be satisfying, truly satisfying.
