    I Got Stared At

    Did you leave a coffee on your roof? Maybe they just wanted to inform you of something. I'll do that sometimes to get their attention so I can tell them of a burned out taillight or if their brake lights aren't working. A horn is so hostile. All they have to do is acknowledge me and I can...

    Post your desktop

    Just black. I write a lot and remove as many distractions as possible so I can immerse myself in my words. I even wrote my own word processor (Browser based) so I can turn off all the jabber surrounding the page. It's like writing in a void.

    I Feel 'Bad' Due To The Mask Mandate Ending Soon

    It could help to think that the virus is still highly active and claiming a thousand lives a day. My inspiration to continue wearing mine is to do all I can to protect children and those unable to protect themselves. However, I have a difficult time trusting those with faces I cannot see. I...

    What do you think of people who can forgive easily?

    I think forgiveness depends on a resolution. If the issue persists or simply fades with no resolve, forgiveness is in the least difficult. On the other hand, without forgiveness relations suffer. Is it more appropriate to ask for forgiveness, or to offer it? I think one is a matter of...

    Are there other others or is it just another other that wouldn't bother with the others?

    How many here are autistic¿

    My school experience is like... Nixon administration. I don't have any clue to how schools today are. I was thrown out of school in 9th grade. Not for being disruptive or trouble. I just skipped as much as I went. But rather than assisting me with the issues involved, they quit me. In as...

    What do you think of people who can forgive easily?

    I can't. But I keep my discontent to myself.

    Misogyny Festers Here

    I don't know the posts she is referring to. I've stumbled on a few posts that I felt should be deleted for their content. Perhaps that is the basis for my opinion. I think there are posts that a woman could be expected to be offended by. She presented that she shouldn't be required to have...

    Misogyny Festers Here

    You say that like it's a bad thing. ;-) I'm just saying, if they condemn all women because they can't get a date, or any other reason, then it is fair to call it misogyny.

    Just another one

    I'm sorry about your Dad. I can't relate. I had a really bad relationship with mine. And I was there. And it never goes away. Different circumstances I know. But having someone die in their lap isn't something I'd want for anyone. I don't know how you would have dealt with it, but not...

    Misogyny Festers Here

    I would argue that Aardra has as much right to post her discomforts as do those she is speaking of. Isn't it all just feelings? Is it not so that your post is bitter because she nurpled your sensibilities? I'm on her side. I think people that degrade others are covering for their own sense...

    Just another one

    It is comforting when others feel empathy for what we go through. Even the little condolences give us a bit more strength. So, thanks. I'm okay. Was a time I wasn't, and it's the people that are willing to take their time to respond to a person's grief that helps us stand up again. There...

    How many here are autistic¿

    Anger is only useful in a physical altercation. It can give you force and intimidation. But it doesn't help with rational thinking, which is what you need when you're trying to make a point. Sure the school system sucks. Teachers like to focus on the brilliant. It's easier than having to...

    Reliance

    Me too. For some reason I tend to take responsibility even when I've not agreed to what they have promised me to. What started this thought is me having spent two years remodeling my wife's house. Almost done. But she wants a laminate floor laid down. I've already finished the floors in two...

    How many here are autistic¿

    And those that fall for most of what you said don't have the brain power to think their way through it. To me, that's simple. Not that I disagree with you, no, not at all. But people will generally chase the shiny things because it doesn't take any thought.

    What are you listening to?

    The click click clicking of an old, worn fan.

    Reliance

    When people rely on you, if you fail them, who do you let down? Them or yourself?

    Once a day: What are you thankful for?

    Blue sky, green hills. Sunshine after it rains. Kittens, frogs, and bugs. Little kids. A good book. Someone that is happy to see me.

    What makes life worth living?

    Take yourself away from everyone. Be alone, completely alone. No contact with anyone. You are in an abandoned town and there isn't another soul to be seen. It will take you only a matter of days to realize what makes life worth living. Community. Relationships. Being able to grow with...
