polaroid_dreamer Went for a walk into town and ended up at the used book store, where I scored some literary treasures, including one written by a favourite university prof. I'm going to need to start a lending library soon... 1mon

polaroid_dreamer And then - as sometimes happens - the universe reminds you of how incredibly lucky you are.
Thank you for the most beautiful little bowl, @luposkitt! I will treasure it always.

polaroid_dreamer I sometimes feel as though I'm not meant to be here - like my spirit isn't meant to be in my body, but somewhere else, outside of me, instead. It's hard to articulate, and even harder to feel, since it leaves me feeling disconnected from everyone...but I'm having one of those days, and I'm told things are less scary when you talk about them. So here I am, telling you all. Pretty scary stuff... 1mon
  •   rhettredelings I have come to believe emotionally powerful cinematic imagery is both an insulator to make the underlying feelings easier to see but they also obscure them, making them harder to understand and reconcile because they seem more real and tangible than the feelings we've tagged them with. 1mon
  •   rhettredelings I submit that the imagery you mention is a metaphor in danger of becoming a myth. 1mon
  •   rhettredelings ...not that you asked. :-) This photograph is beautiful. 1mon
  •   onomatopoetic @polaroid_dreamer I hope it goes away soon, sounds uncomfortable. Sending hugs! 1mon
  •   polaroid_dreamer @rhettredelings I'm not too worried that seeing that imagery changed my feelings; it more gave me a better frame of reference for describing the otherness that I feel intensely, from time to time. There's probably a chance that since that imagery exists, someone else in the world understands him or herself better, now, too...and I'll never belittle that feeling of personal understanding, no matter where it comes from. Anyway. Thank you for your musings...and the compliment. 1mon
  •   polaroid_dreamer @onomatopoetic thank you; it's gone away again now. (Clearly your hugs worked! ) 1mon
  •   rhettredelings Oh, please understand, I wasn't belittling anything. Imagery and myth definitely have a powerful and necessary place in the human experience. I suppose I thought there was an opportunity here for an interesting conversation that might be helpful in addressing that sense of otherness you experience. I am glad to hear you're feeling better. 1mon
  •   polaroid_dreamer @rhettredelings ah. I didn't mean to upset you, I simply meant to express that the important thing is that people are using whatever tools they're offered to help better themselves. I agree that myth and imagery are powerful examples of this, though I'm not entirely sure how that relates to how I was feeling. Either way, thank you for reaching out - it's good to have support here; it's very much appreciated. 1mon
