    Grey Areas

    It has taken me a long time to learn that almost nothing is totally black and white. I still struggle with this on some subjects.I have learned that just because I believe one way doesn't mean that every one else does too. That what I see as wrong some others might see as okay...

    Chasing Fireflies

    Fungirl’s Notes: This story popped into my head as I was sitting outside on my lawn, chatting on the phone with my boyfriend about his daughter. He LOVES that little girl deeply and she is a topic of our conversations frequently.  As luck would have it the song...

    Impatience, and the lack of civility,

    accepting not everyone sees the world the way you do, is the fault behind the majority of strife in human society. We expect everyone to take us at face value but we do not reciprocate. I try not to rush to pigeonhole people. It is a hard thing to do when you meet a barrage of...

    It's funny how the same thing can make us smile

    and cry, sometimes at the same time. The men/women we have loved. The ones who absolutely shattered our hearts, but at the same time gave us those little butterflies into our stomachs. Those feelings of ecstatic love that made us smile even if we tried not to. And we'd feel...

    Different Hues & Views

    I had a clear and definite line between what i considered right and wrong. And I still do, but I also realize that somethings in life have to be compromised.  Everyone takes a different path through life, facing obstacles that clearly impact their perceptions and define their...

    A Strength And A Weakness

    I never see life in black and white.  In fact, this is one of my strengths and also one of my weaknesses.  Even by saying that I am applying this same philosophy that nothing is ever straightforward. In all life situations there is always a middle ground for me.  A grey area...

    Never Is

    Life is grey. Grey with a thousand different hues, some bordering on black, some sparkling with light and joy, some dark and malignant. Life is an adventure. Painted many many shades. All for us to explore. Life is a challenge. With it's ups and downs. I'll tell you...

    Heck, it's not even in shades of grey (no

    reference to lousy fan-fiction adapted into lousier mommy-**** intended). Rather, life has variable all along the visible and invisible electromagnetic spectrum!

    I have noticed that many people on EP (and in

    our societies) tend to view things in life as being black and white or as being good and evil. Life is far more complex than dualism. There is a wide range of grey zones. As example, I remember when George Bush said: "If you are not with us, it means that you are against us...

    The community I belong to

    and live in is on the whole very black and white. It can be difficult to find open minded people where I live. I believe that just as each snowflake is unique, so are people and trying to force people or issues into just two categories is not realistic.
