Sometimes...we can feel alone in a room full of people.
Sometimes...we aren't alone...but would be better off if we were.
Sometimes...we realize being alone helps us appreciate everything more,
when we finally aren't alone anymore.
Sometimes...we aren't lucky enough to have functional families.
Sometimes...everyone that we loved is gone.
How many people have everything, but 'feel' nothing?
How many people have everything, but can't find happiness?
How many people have everything, but are still searching for something?
How many people have everything, but don't like themselves?
I was drawn to this thread tonight. I've read the whole thing.
You have all touched me! I feel bad because I won't be alone tomorrow/today.
I can feel your pain, sadness & heartache. I want to give everyone peace of heart & mind!
People today live closer together than ever before, but are more socially isolated.
Going about their stressful, busy lives. How many people even know their neighbors?
I mean, 'really' know them? The more people that are crammed into a small space,
the less they interact. Why is that? And so many have to live far from their families.
People running like they are on hamster wheels. Not knowing where they are going.
Not knowing why they are running. Never getting anywhere!
So many people aren't happy, but a lot of them can't tell you why!
We've all been fed the 'big lie'! More, more! Newer, newer! Faster, faster!
The faster we go, the more behind we get! Our relationships suffer.
No time to be ourselves or slow down & really live life!
Why do so many people think about TEOTWAWKI?
Is it because everything would have to slow down? And go back to being simpler?
Isn't that what we are all yearning for? A simple, peaceful life???
I wish there really were transporters. I would pick a beautiful, temperate spot.
In an out of the way place. That had a perfect view of millions of stars at night.
With a brook & waterfall nearby. Crickets & peepers doing their thing too.
Then build a campfire to sit around. And transport everyone there!
We'd have warm, or warming,
drinks of choice.
And sit around the fire talking into the wee hours.
(I have always liked to hear peoples' life stories!)
No place to have to be. No clocks or phones, no bills, no obligations, no cares.
At least for now. Time would stand still until WE were ready to go back!
So until that day can happen...my WISH for you is....
A warm, virtual fire here on ATS. Where you can feel like we are all family.
And share or forget your problems....at least for a little while.
And know that we really do care. You are not alone. We are here for you if you need us!
