I know.....its like I don't have a pencil but hey I have a knife.
Well of course that is an obvious replacement for a pencil.
... that is so random. And oh-so dangerous.
I've always had a feeling that we were very different people, Muse, this just confirms it... I, personally, believe that as many times as you need to cry over something, you should, otherwise you're only repressing an emotion and exacerbating the problem. Obviously, that isn't the same for everybody, and what works for one, may not work for another.
Oh Muse that is terrible. Good luck with the next paper keep us updated.
How amazing that is a grat picture
I kind of agree with you Muse I am not much of a crier. But there are rare times when things get to me and I can not help it.
It seems somewhat similar to something I recently read by a Buddhist Lama, Lama Yeshe. He said that sometimes we express anger, thinking that it is the only or right way to deal with the emotion. We express it, thinking that by expressing it goes away. But actually we are only practicing expressing anger, we are only creating a pattern by which the afflictive emotion will certainly run through again.
Of course I don't have the exact words of Lama Yeshe, but it was something to that effect.
I remember there was this old saying, and now I cannot remember just where I heard it or the details, but the basic gist of it was, you should only cry once over anything, becasue beyond that there is no point to do so and contininuing to do so will not resolve anything. So after you get it out of your system once you should be over it and move on with your life.
Oh my, how did a photo of a droopy flower become a symbol for a phallus?! Filthy minds all of you! (besides muse!)
Interesting. It's certainly a good idea, saying we should not dwell on those things which cause us temporary unhappiness but focus on going on with our life. Thanks for the reminder.
Dang, Virgil...Sagging, eh?
No not me, but I'm told as a man ages...
Oh have you seen my thread and poll considering whether it's ok for men to cry? It's here: http://www.online-literature.com/for...ad.php?t=42028. I would love to see your vote and comments, though i'm sure which side you'd fall on.
I like them... it serves to remind how fragile and short life is - meaning, to make the best and most of it.
These are simple but they are nice.
Dang, Virgil...Sagging, eh?
ah but Dark Muse I chose to go Anti-Dark Muse who saw in the flower the possibility of renewal of life and a return to greatness--that the light is on at the end of the tunnel and the support of other flowers will bring about a cheery Waltons ending. I just had to turn this entry around.
What can I say, I am one of those morbid people who seek the beauty in death
tisk tisk Virgil you naughty boy you
Well, one never knows how DM is going to depress us, but leave it to ol' Virg to interpret the sad lonely dying flower as a metaphor for our aging sagging bodies. Wow,it sure makes me enjoy the parade of time.
