#912 Differences and Feelings (Contributed by Wendy)

Post contributed by Wendy:

To see people as human beings, their spirit, soul and personality, versus labels and acronyms.

I adore shows like “Little House on the Prairie and “Road to Avonlea!”

Some reasons are:
The clothing, home decor, nature scenes and my love of boots! Heart matters spoken, simpler times and acceptance of one another’s personality and individualty, naturally.
Story-telling, song singing, instrument playing and barn dancing… whiling away the hours! Musicians keeping it real and keeping their clothes on, while artists and activists marching for freedom were taking them all off.
Endearing and eloquent words as well as manners and common sense being common place. Ways in which community rallies ’round one another, becomes a team and works it all out together, no matter for who and/or the reason.
There’s an awareness when one hurts all are affected. The salt of others tears is tasted. And within all of this, there’s an undeniable spirit. Not one of the same, “cloneliness”, but one that is human kindness. A living true to DNA of be-ing, the only acronym to define differences.

These were times when labels such as crazy and insane were not toyed with as in slang for fantastic, but care-fully delivered. A sensitive~ a spiritual guide, sought out for sensible solutions. Determined, tenacious, impeccable ~ seen as a keen eye to detail. Creatively chaotic~a brilliant poet, play write, novelist. Introspective, inquisitive left wing thinker~perhaps a clever scientist, physicist, innovative entrepreneur, inventor. Anxious ~ a stressed system, maybe in the midst of transformation. Nervous~ seen for what it is, shy by nature, grief stricken loss or perchance pining for love.
All attributes within their own right. Some being social butterflies, others sideliners, some prefering company in smaller circles, while others are the life of the party. Room for one and all, no-one greater than the other. A diverse and vast spectrum of persons intermingling… beautiful.

I don’t know who gets to define what is the right personality or mind… Albert Einstein, Joan of Arc, Buddah, Allah or Jesus Christ! I only know to follow Little House on the Prairie and The Road To Avonlea’s example of living within an exacting code of ethics, just feels good and right. Besides, I’m given permission to wear ma’ boots year ’round and free with confident grace, to go skinny dipping as I am, at the Crawdad hole, honey-sugar-baby mine… Awesome!

  1. I know that I’ve changed a lot over the years. I grew up country, but in high school, I was in denial and went goth. My best friend was probably one of the preppiest girls. It was odd to see us together. Me in all black and her in bright colors. We stayed together. Even after I became a mom and ditched my goth look. I’m back in touch with who I am and my best friend has always accepted who I was.

    • This blog wasn’t entering my emails for sometime so I never saw this comment and what a perfectly prime and poignant example; reflection this is, Bekah!
      A photograph of the two of you entered the annual, no doubt:) If not, it should’ve and the card attached should say; Thank you for being a friend!
      Best Friends Forever, no matter what!
