Walkabout


Walkabout is a term I first learned from my favorite writer. It comes from the Australian Aborigines rite of passage. In this context, it refers to finding oneself. Some time ago I became so distracted with everyday life that I lost a part of me. I didn’t’ know who I was, what I wanted and where I was going. Then one day without realizing it; I came to a fork in the road. Before I knew it one part of me went one way and the other part, the really important part, went another. So now I go Walkabout and I’ll keep walking until I meet the other part of me. Afterward, we will sit down have a long talk. Talk about what we’ve learned, what we’ve lost and what we’ve felt until there are no more words. Then with any luck, I will look up and see that there is just me.

My journey has led me here to this site.

POST SCRIPT: If anyone regcognizes the writer and the content in my posts... Please do not post any response in reference to that. It will explained at the end.

Well if your other part is as wonderful as this part, wow, how incredible will that be.

This comes from Dr. Franklin’s walkabout story after he discovered he was addicted to drugs. That was not an issue with me. I have no chemical dependencies besides nicotine. ~blech!~ A post on that another time. But I liked the concept. I really was mixed up at that time and I needed to find myself again. Myself before 2001.

Piper,

As per our conversation, this evening, and the mask I wear, to hide my intelligence. I tried an experiment in the chatroom. It was quite amazing. First, I must set the scernario. There are two well-known regulars, showing private flesh part on the cam. Of course, the men, are in a frenzy. I, can turn on my cam, and do the same, at any point in time. I make reference to such. One gentlewoman requests that I refrain, and keep her company. She is such a dear.

Then, I see a new member name: "Gaugin". I have a strong appreciation of art history. I happen to have studied the Impressionists, and the NeoImpressionists. I also know that Gaugin was a fellow-Gemini, which my account for some of the awkward decisions he made, probably fueled by his syphillic brain. I ask "Gaugin" if the real Gaugin was a NeoImpressionist or an Impressionist. A true test of any art historian. Ah, the answer he gave me, was a NeoImpressionist. Which I begged to differ, due to the fact that Vangoh and Gaugin were friends. A tragic friendship, at that point for both. To me, if they were friends of the same era, then, Vangoh was definitely an Impressionist, not a neoimpressionist.

I also opined that, perhaps, Gaugin, was bi-polar? Which I admit, was the wrong hypothesis. It was his syphillis infected brain that caused his poor judgement. Yet, he still is considered one of the greatest Impressionists of his time.
