If I ever thought this was becoming a bore I'd probably cease and desist, nothing is worse than Boring! *LOL* I really do enjoy hearing from any of you who take the time to engage in a Post's Topic and say Hey! Most Blog interaction for me in all the Years I've been a Blogger have been Positive and enriching, I've made so many Real Friends here in The Land of Blog. Several I have had the Delight of actually meeting up with in Person too! I think Blogging can be very Personal because you are Sharing a part of yourself here, this thing called Life, our Passions and Experiences! We've enjoyed the Fluff of Life together and the Sharing of Mutually enjoyable Topics. We've also Shared some of the tough stuff, the Issues of Life if you will... and that is the deepest connection because it is so very intimate and often kept so very Private in Real Life. The vulnerability being what it can be, Blogs have often given utterance and a Voice to things not usually expressed openly in General Public or Society at large.
There is an Acceptance in the Blogging World that often isn't as readily given in Real Life, at least not as openly and unconditionally as I've seen in The Land Of Blog. There are Bloggers who've exposed more of who they are, what they're going through and what they Love online than perhaps even their closest Friends and Loved Ones might ever know, no matter how long relationship has been in place! The acceptance of the Disabled Community seems Kinder online, than the virtual invisibility that can happen getting Lost in Society brings to many who are different and challenged physically, emotionally or mentally. It's just more inclusive here, along with various other differences that aren't always as embraced in Society at Large. You can be different here... it's generally a safer environment to express differences and make them more relatable, because we get to know one another beyond the difference. Perhaps it is also due to being able to connect to more Kindred Spirits in vast Cyberspace than one ever could in Real Life? That might have everything to do with it too?
Who knew there were so many of My Tribe out there? *LOL* Also, who knew that people not even of My Tribe out there could and would also Connect in the most Meaningful of ways that would be a mutual Delight? Perhaps in Real Life we wouldn't have a means to even become interactive and inclusive of one another or ever get to 'know' one another so unconditionally? We might have the chance encounter randomly somewhere in Life but never have the ability to Get Together like you can so easily accomplish Online with anyone at almost any time! Internationally I have a Wonderful Following of Supporters of my Blog in so many Countries that it's Mind Blowing. The Young Prince, when he was a mere nine years old, showed me how to track where Visitors were coming from and statistically see so much more to improve the Quality of my Blogging experience! So he set up the Translation feature so that those who came for a Visit could Translate the content into their Language. I in turn got to Visit the International Blog Community and do the same. It was like Traveling again!
The Nomad in me Misses Traveling so much! I get restless when I have to Stay Put, I really do. I do think that Free Spirited Souls just have Wanderlust inherent in their DNA. We like The Adventure of experiencing different things, the exposure to more than what and who we just are, to be a part of something bigger and greatly more expansive than ourselves. I am enriched every time I meet someone different, experience Variety and Cultural exchanges beyond the scope of whatever I already have thus far. I'll try any new Cuisine at least once, numerous times if I like it! *Winks* I've been experimenting with giving the Critters different experiences of Tastes too, so long as it's compatible to what they are allowed to have, which I look up first to ensure it's safe for their Species. They too get so excited when something new is introduced, they become euphoric about it! This is Hammy experiencing Micro Greens for the first time. Alduin the Bearded Dragon Loved them too! I Wish I could have captured the Image of Hammy sprawled out laying flat on his back afterwards, with what I swear was a contented Smile on his little Face! And Alduin with a Micro Greens Mustache on both side of his Comical Looking Face, where some Radish Sprouts had stuck to his Mouth Scales! *LOL*
I was going to end this Post up there on that last Paragraph, since Yesterday Blogger was not working well at all and the glitches of losing parts of the Post were maddening. But Today it's all working fine again and I want to Write, too lazy to begin another Post, so we'll just continue this one in it's Random Musings! *Winks* Facebook apparently had glitches too Internationally, I often Wonder whose hacking and Trolling to cause such inconveniences and Drama in cyberspace and Why, what their misguided Agenda might be? There are so many misguided Souls nowadays and controversies, confrontational attitudes and antagonistic strong points of views abounding. Though I fully Believe in being part of the Resistance and standing up for what is decent and humane to all Living Transient Beings on this Earth, I prefer Peaceful coexistence whenever it is possible and can be worked out. It seems to be getting harder again as Tolerance wanes within Society once again and some find Hatred to be a preferable state of their Being over Love.
Having spent more than half of my Corporate Lives in a Career that dealt with people who crossed the boundaries of being Law abiding, at Peace and Orderly in how they behaved within Society, I am painfully aware of what can happen. The very worst of Humanity and how it can go so very wrong when boundaries are crossed and Criminal activities and behavior are chosen. There is almost always collateral damage done, there are very few Victimless Crimes and lives not touched by whatever transpired. Everyone ultimately pays a Price for it one way or another... Society must always pay a Price for those within it that have chosen a Path with Negative consequences. It radiates outward like ripples in a Pond hit with the violent repercussion of a Stone breaking the Calmness of the surface. A Positive Path would also Change things, but in ways that Society would benefit. Why is it so hard then for Positivity to prevail I Wonder as a conscious choice? A fascinating random piece of Trivia I found Interesting online was that according to the OED, Positivity predates Negativity in English by 167 Years!
