Coffee Conversation

Wednesday morning blues



Ever have one of those days when you wonder how your could've been so blind about someone? Take it from me: I am nobody's fool. I have a survivalist's instinct about people. Contrastingly, I  have a rather romantic view of things like honor, loyalty and truth.


On this day, however, now three years after being betrayed and abandoned, it is is as if the chemicals in my brain have altered and I see the world through Average Jane's eyes. Horrible, horrible and more horrible! No wonder people seem to find me so interesting: I am forever exploring the depths of thought, giving color and texture to emotion and painting my landscape with lots of love and entertaining hypotheses.


I am no saint but it took my whole life up to this point to fall in love so absolutely and that there is no known cure. That happened six years ago and the relationship only lasted three of those years. I feel as though I have been mauled by an extremely dangerous beast and left to die.

Obviously,  I have not died yet - I still have some ways to go.


This devastating aftermath has had some interesting consequences thus far: it has made me very loving towards friends and my understanding is more tinged with tolerance for a whole new aspect of humanity.


My humanity has made me somehow more human.  Nothing much sways me one way or another. Excessive greed for financial gain is not an issue. I continually do self-examination to make sure that selfishness is not taking too much root. I worry about the long term consequences of any potentially negative characteristics. My biggest failing is my inability to tolerate fools. People who refuse to think and to strive. Don't be silly, I am obviously not referring to one's perceived place in society and corporate clawing. I am trying to talk myself out of my harsh-glass view of life on this day.


I woke up this morning and was horrified to realize what a fool I have been. My relationship had only been in my own head and was not a two-way street.

I never, ever again want to experience the feeling of being discarded like dirty washing or something distasteful stuck under a shoe.


However, the moment of harsh clarity has now passed because life is just so damned peachy and it is getting towards my lunch break. So the sense of my true love just being away for a while returns along with my illusions.

It would be a trifle odd, I suppose, to be a railway bum at my age and not be able to get all dolled up for the occasion

They were dark days for gentle people in Africa.

The colors of blood and black were everywhere - coupled with the burning of the cities, of farms, of people.

Ode to the Egg:

O Eggie, O Eggie, none better than the Eggie!
From bum of chicken to plate of prince, personable, satisfying, uncomplaining and nice to eat
Eggs grow leggs - eventually - and run off to greener pastures
How interesting is the Egg!
