Literature
good mom vs. bad mom
A good mom's love
Though you may become the biggest slime bag on the planet, she'll condemn your actions, but she'll still love you.
A bad mom's indifference
The cosmic microwave background radiation of The Fall.

Literature
the allure of the dark side
Everyone has a dark side. Allowing your dark side to gain the upper hand sets you at odds with nature, humanity and God. Either one or all of these will eventually end your evil.

Literature
slightly subdued
I was gearing up to have an amazing day when my mom tells me that her friend’s husband died in the early hours of this morning from a heart attack. He wasn’t all that old. It’s still a beautiful day but I can’t quite engage those higher gears anymore.
I should be feeling a lot worse.
I have Mozart’s Sleigh Ride going through my head; which is a very merry piece of music!
*shakes own head*

Literature
I have spoken
After spending many many years of engaging in the activity of thinking, and getting nowhere slowly, I have come to the conclusion that the answers, if any, are not to be found in thought. We can make better progress towards the Truth with Love, Kindness, Humility, Compassion.
But most especially with Love.

Literature
Anything can happen at any time
But you don’t believe it, do you? You’ve gone beyond thinking that ‘it will never happen to me.’ You know that if bad things happen to others why should they not happen to you or to those whom you love? The odds are low that a plane will land on your house. We find comfort in such statistics, I guess. Pity the unfortunates who do experience what we all fear. It’s a lottery that nobody ever wants to win. I pray you never do.

it just looks that way
Nothing happens by chance –
it just looks that way.
Nor is everything predestined –
it just looks that way.

Well, I don't care what you say;
this is going to be another day without love;
but that's ok, that's ok.

Dear fellow deviants

Something to think about:

Dealing with strangers online seems to involve a kind of dual thinking.
It's weird: 1. you are who you appear to be; and 2. you might not be. I always think of the phrase 'bozo in the basement'. E.g. You see a pic of an attractive female user but in reality it's some bozo in a basement posing as said female user. Or, a handsome young guy is actually 60!

Have fun here but as on any social website take all precautions. As my friend reminded me the same rule applies in the real world. Basically, trust no one until they have earned it; and even then there are degrees of trust. The process of trusting someone begins only when you have met them face to face. And they strongly advise never meeting a stranger you've met online in the real world. A lot of conditions would have to be met before considering doing that.
