I can’t believe how freakin’ late I slept. Woah.
It’s gorgeous out.
If you scroll down this page, you’ll see a lot of colorful, bubble-pop frippery. It isn’t that I haven’t had any serious stretches lately, it’s just I either don’t write them here, or I write and delete them, as a few weebles have seen.
I donno. It’s weird, in a way, how completely wired people are for balance. Balance influences a lot of our interactions, we don’t even know it. Twins… like, twins who live together tend to develop complementary personalities. Sometimes they’re opposites in a lot of regards, but technically you could describe one with a certain set of adjectives and the other with another set of adjectives. One will be the responsible one, or the other might be the ‘cool’ one, the ‘mean’ one, the ‘smart’ one.
Take those same twins and raise them apart, you end up with two remarkably similar human beings who both seem to encompass a more rounded picture of the same personality.
It’s true. I’m just sayin. How many times have you felt yourself growing calm, controlled, compassionate because someone in your immediate circle was all freaked out/damaged about something? You’re there for them. You fill in that space.
But if everyone’s a-ok, it’s like a good time to break down and have a fitty yourself. The environment provides the necessary backdrop.
Balance. We do it internally, in relationships, all kinds of things. Some internal monitor doesn’t want everything on one extreme end, one pole or the other. If you have someone at the extreme left of the political scale, there will be a vocal faction of the extreme right to balance it out.
If you have 8 years of conservatism and military, then ‘change’ will be the big ticket seller. The pendulum swings back. The populous needs balance.
Where am I going with this? I just woke up, and I’m ‘ruminating’ en-worde. A winded explanation; I present to you: Fluffy crap! Kamikaze m&m’s! The teenage Chewbacca! A sci-fi boink fest!
That’s what you see. Yes. It’s not just frippery, it serves a purpose. A good, good purpose.
I’m tryin’ to balance out all the serious stuff.
