Maybe I am burned out,
Of something like that there is no doubt,
Not sure what this is about,
Sometimes I guess my thought processes just need to reroute...

One persons reality,

May be another’s fantasy,

One person may see a cute little kitty,

When another may see a full grown lion in ecstasy…


Reality does not exist,

Or so some do believe and do persist,

If something can be touched or tasted,

Does it not stand to reason it does then exist,

Or can it be just one persons perception,

To others still just a deception…


If I do exist in real time,

How can I be one with another,

If that person is in a differing zone of time,

I only ask these questions assuming someone else is out there,

If you do as I exist, maybe then you can explain if you do care,

If caring is beyond your realm,

Then all the above is just my brain on total overwhelm…

A little to surreal and in-deoth for my limited brain power. Trying to come up with an answerable answer is migrine time. Naw. Not really, Ed, you actually got right to the point . . .er . . . I think. LOL

The reality is no matter the time or place you being 3 hours ahead of me yet we are both here now and could talk on IM being in the same place at the same time in ways that do not relate to time or calendar which were only established for the sake of order. It's a fascinating subject and I'm going to bed or I'd spend more time debating it with you;-) Rufuz give your dad a kiss he's having the heebie jeebies.Take him for a walk;-) Eileen

Ed,the depth of this write is astounding. What you see here, and dont see but know it is so id the foundation of reality VS faith. You have split the realms with this write...way to go.

This I am comparing to astrology. You either believe or you don't. I do. I believe astrology arose out of the necessity to regulate and grow crops in primitive agricultural communities by seasonal rhythms observed in nature. This is reality and it is one's perception. I am inspired by the tangible, the real, that I can see, by the patterns of the stars. We can't ignore the unconscious experience which spring from ideas of astrology, religion, and architecture. You are a part of the Zodiac, Ed and I do care about the Zodiac. Persons born at the time of rule by a particular planet are said to have unique characteristics. Horoscopes are detailed maps of the heavens at the time of a person's birth. These characteristics can be drawn about personality, character, profession, talents, and desires, of which you are among, Ed. You are in deep thought tonight. I appreciate you going "there."

Depth of thought is within this write. Of course we care Ed. Never doubt that. Thoughts and questions often arise when we are going through changes. If my hand is injured I know it is a part of me, a reality of that moment. Yet at other times I can look at that same hand and wonder how it can be part of me. I see it but it does not feel real. When I think of my appearance the mirror never agree's. I think I like what I feel, more then what I see :-) and not one drink have I had while writing this.
