What do we mean by distance?
I got off the telephone with my mother. A hundred years ago it would have taken a few months for me to get to where she is. Seventy five years ago it would have been a week on the trains. I can drive it in about 16 hours. Flying takes about 5 hours. Yet I pick up the telephone and she is grumping at me about eating right in about three seconds. How far away is she? I know and speak with people from around the world. I don't know the people living two doors down.
What is distance?
In this world there are half a million people sitting in small rooms right now. They are typing away. Most of them are alone in the room;…
or are they? Some of them are typing away at the distance making contact in a new and different way. Here on this list we have people shopping for sex, intimacy, friendship or just playing at a fantasy. I admire the bravery of the people who post photos here. I see them as a gift to the rest of us. Thank you for sharing the sight of yourself. Thank you for removing that reserve that distance.
I post no photo because it gives me some distance. I need some distance to hide in. My employer would not approve of the choices I make. My views on life, love, sex, and just down and dirty fucking, would not fit in his born again fanatic view. His view point is far removed from mine.
