uh oh the coffee maker leaked again but that's okay, who of a certain age hasn't leaked something from their body?
It's old and has a broken toggle so if you don't put the caraff back
in just so, the coffee dribbles down and leaves a mess on the counter.
Then I spilled the cup a bit picking it up, so who's to judge?
Life is quirky if you notice. Little things that make you wonder if
you've gone crazy or if everyone has these kinds of things happen.
That's if you're lucky because those quirks and weird things are what
keeps things interesting.
They may be odd but they are YOUR oddities.
habits and weirdness doesn't grow on trees, one must form them over time. The surprise weirdness shows up like a new TV show, and can be as entertaining if you let them.
|No More Wine!|
Suddenly my poodle does not like the opening of a wine bottle, an all
too frequent happening these days. He is content watching out the back
slider to see if a neighbor is threatening our safety, by maybe going to
their mailbox. One of us asks the evening question, "do you want wine?"
He pops up like the guardian of the gates of hades, barking and running to the daddy. It makes us laugh still, happens all the time now, and yet we laugh. He is so sincere in his new weirdness about wine, we take turns supplying a running imaginary commentary for him.
"No !!! No more pops! No more noises... haven't we had enough noise?
You two should stop drinking wine! Think of the Poooooooooooodles!"
I watched a video the other day ( find it here ) that explained to me I am a highly
sensitive person. I suspected it... I think all the time and cannot
stand noise or violence, am overwhelmed by too many frightening daily
circumstances, I pick up on unspoken clues others miss, I am highly empathetic.
I feel shell-shocked.
When it all gets to be too much I hear myself say, "I
need to go to the studio and make something" I found out I am not odd,
nor neurotic (well that's not proven) and 20% of humans are born like
this too. In fact 20% of over a hundred species of animals have it as
We just need some methods to enable us to cope with this crazy world
we live in, and to stop judging our selves. We need to inform the 80% of
people who are not like us that we are not just weird, we are people
too and if they persist in judging us harshly and dismissing us, we will
not believe their assessment of us. So there.
We are sensitive to noise at our house, the popping of corks, loud cars, jets flying over on training missions, sudden barking of poodles who are startled.
If you want me, I'll be in studio making stuff.
Linking to T stands for Tuesday... like a "drink' post
