I wonder, if I were to write an entry about cynicism, would people doubt my motives?

I'm pretty sure that I would. In fact, I'm pretty sure that I'm doing it right now, as I type this sentence.

It's just something I was thinking about today. I don't want to become one of those people. One of those people who's distrust has become so universal that they can't even trust themselves anymore. I know several people like that. They're not happy people.

I don't want to be like that. Like one of them.

But, problem is, I'm bombarded with selfishness and deceit everywhere I look and everywhere I go.

Lies disguised as kindness.

Cruelty for my own good.

And so on...

It's hard to trust. It really is. To look through the deceptions and beyond the actions and see what a person is really like. To ignore the bumps in the road and remember that it's the destination that's important.

I'm rambling now. I think I'll go sit in my garage. It's a nice night.

Speaking of your garage, how's the kitty you set-up in there one winter. I think it was a black kitty, you put together a blanet stuffed box-nest for it. . . . .? . . . ?

Spook died almost five years ago.


Obviously had been reading/remembering an old post of yours.

I absolutely love the way you write, and I've tripped around all over your site taking in various posts.

I will try to be more cognizant of what I'm responding to, as to when you had written it.

= O

~Hope you enjoy your weekend!

No need to apologize. She was a good kitty, and I still think about her sometimes. They're good memories.

If you haven't left a comment here before, you may need to be approved before your comment will appear. Until then, it won't appear on the entry. Thanks for waiting.

I'll pretty much approve anything except SPAM comments, or comments that clearly have no purpose except to piss me off, or comments that are insulting to a previous commenter.

Use anything you want for your name and email address. I think it has to at least look like a valid email address though.
