    On m 18th birthday in April 1977, i went out to canvas town deer hunting with a good friend of mine.   On the way out there i was driving Kim's van which these days would be a death trap of a thing. I think it was a small humber something or other.    The terrain we tramped...

    The Heart

    Home is where you feel accepted, loved, wanted.. So where's my home? Burned to the ground years ago and no where has ever made me feel that way since.. So tell me if home is where the heart is, then I guess I don't have a heart either...

    I Thought I Did, But Not Now...

    Feel like you don't belong?  It may be an indication of mental health.  Out culture, country, music, food, and environment are going to rat-****.  If you feel you belong, you have settled for second rate.  For those who seek refuge in cults, religions, and ideologies, you...

    Nned Some Where To Belong?

     many months ago I felt so out of touch, so out of place on life, felt like I had no where to belong any where, even in my career (Residential Care aide), it was quite the unsettling feeling. I strive hard at work to make a place for me there, to be a real part of the team...

    I Don't Need Somewhere to Belong ...

    I probably should have started a different group, but I thought I'd share these thoughts here anyway. I have always thought of myself as a bit of a nomad.  I have no real connection to any place and would live happily anywhere.  I was born in England but have no desire...

    My Take On Belonging

    This idea of "belonging" is an age old quest. All religions and political movements and even business formations are all based on this the "quest" to "belong." We are a so-called social animal, and yet most of us, most of the time, are substantially...

    Maybe I Belong In The Past

    I feel that I don't belong here, in this time. I feel as though I belong in a period of the 20th century, when values were more defined. Truth seemed to be more of a quality to be striven for, and one considered one's fellows, rather than the 'me first' society in which we now...

    Real Belonging

    It is a contradiction but, at the same time that I want to belong somewhere, I like being "belongingless". I guess the exception would be if I belonged to place or group, which would fit me perfectly and make me feel whole. But I am not that naive. This is utopia and...

    Lost At Sea For Loss of Welcoming Shores

    So then It is that I find myself at a loss for acceptance as I am quite eccentric and it is by chance that redheads share a strange similarity to my plight. At least from what I've read and heard them say. I myself am not a red head but find them all as a torch of sorts if you...
