Blame Is Such a Blur
Today I venture out. I am at a tavern style bar and grill and have already been served a Heineken. Maybe I have celebration on my mind. I am optimistic that my neck/arm pain is going to subside and more importantly, I feel some breakthroughs underway.
I was thinking about the concept of ecology and how it really is a much broader and more important “science” than say, economics. Economics is all about the relationships between inputs of resources and the outputs of goods and services. Ecology takes the economic concept further and includes the concept of replenishment. Not just what is yielded but what is sustainable.
Have “met” a lot of people on EP. There is a really great variety of personal styles and interests, quite refreshing. Various favorite subjects, writing styles, senses of humor, emotional sharing, calling out, reaching out and on. But the most important observation I have made is what we all have in common. We are all human persons seeking connection. And for the most part, we are full of compassion and seek to do the right things in life. I thank all of you.
Doing this “EP thing”, at least for now, helps me to create some clarity around my own thoughts and actions. There is a sense of obligation to be honest with myself before I share a set of thoughts. For example, (hopefully) you do not see any “spouse bashing” on my part, although I am very concerned about my marriage. When I review my writing, I find myself eliminating things that I feel but don’t really believe.
My emotions, on the other hand, I try to be very raw and open with, about what I am feeling without being too involved with blame. Blame can be such a blur.
