Blog Buddies with Benefits
Now that I am getting acquainted with the Blogosphere I realise what I LUV about it.
There is something for everyone.
It is obvious to some, that our species is endangering not only ourselves but the whole planet. There is a WAR of Ideas being fought and we have to be careful about the collateral damage.
That being said, as a member of the fastest growing segment of the population, those that tick NO RELIGION on the Census form, I recognise that good people come in all sorts of packages. Maybe we are what we think we are, but there is more to us than what we think. What others think about us can have as little or as much effect as we allow. The fact that we are still fortunate enough to opine without fear of imprisonment or being burned at the stake needs to be celebrated.
I laugh, I cry, Blogging becomes a part of me...
If I choose to engage in cerebral intercourse about religion, history, sex, politics, or philosophy, debate creationism and evolution, absorb trivia, share some heartbreaking revelation or stunning confession, enjoy a witty reconstruction of someone'e ordinary day, read a beautiful poem or view awesome artwork, learn about customs and phobias from afar, laugh or wince at ridiculous rantings and ravings, relive my youth through those rose coloured glasses, or simply spoof, cajole, disseminate, regurgitate or just
it's all out here..something for my ever changing moods...
My link list is starting to get interesting and diversified. Its the reason why I have designated my profilic occupation as a Scallywag, or one who mischieveously consorts with the opposition? I love people who never waste? one second worrying or even thinking about the BIG QUESTIONS, but I gravitate towards those who do ponder them from time to time. Regardless, we're in this together, trapped on an island spinning around the Sun at 60,000 miles per hour...
Life is a giant version of LOST
This should be fun! Atleast some of the time? If it were all Doom and Gloom I'd be out weeding the garden and enjoying numerous chemical cocktails. I want to be learning something and to do that I have to keep an open mind.
(Mind you I will hide behind the door with a Rubber Chicken to smack 'ya just in case your ideas are either insanely ridiculous or simply way better than mine!)
Agnostic doesn't have to mean Antagonistic!
(I do have to watch out for that, sorry to you know who you are...)
Hopefully I will mature but sometimes I get so thorny.
I would like my path to lead me past the fascadic points of view and deeper into the people.
There is almost always a reason WHY someone thinks the way they do.
As an Agnostic, I am obviously comfortable with having reconciled that some questions in Life are ultimately unanswerable.
But, and as PeeWee said, "everybody has a big BUT", I am still excited and challenged by meeting people from both alternative and traditional viewpoints.
Nearly everyone, I said nearly, has something illuminating to say about one thing or another. We are all a combo of Charming and Tedious.
Studying our similarities is far more productive and enlightening than sweating the small stuff. Life is way too short and unpredictable to waste every ounce of energy proving that you've got it 99.9%
figured out..even if somedays
you think that you do!
Hope you find someone that challenges you on this or someother list.....
