    Hunting Deer

    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...

    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...

    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...

    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...

    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...

    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...

    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...

    The Heart
