Nothing Is Black and White

My blogs are mental designs and landscapes that attempt to reflect my sense of not only the times we are living in as well as the past... and both how richly interesting life is.... the people, the issues..... and how difficult it can be for most of us to navigate the uncharted waters. There is a great dimension of ambiguity with push and pull, the lure and the repulsion, the fiction and the real, the known and the unknown, the happiness and the sadness. And we live in this swirl of delicate gestures, driving desires, fantasy, economic complexity and interdependence, isolation and hope. I am trying to render some notion of this and find my way. To have one's heart broken, makes one look inward and out!

Happiness and sadness, to look inward out is the truest form of self recognition. Only eyes washed by tears see clearly. Uncharted waters? or are these waters charted but we just havn't found the right crew to sail them with?

Once upon a time this was less of a problem. Our society had numerous cultural institutions in place, so people knew what to expect and what was expected of them. Then came the self esteem movement of the mid 70's and we decided that people should be able to do what ever they wished. So no more guidelines. No more assistance with deciding what to do either. (after all that would be someone else deciding what you should do) So now the unexperienced undereducated are expected to figure these things out for themselves. Now you just do whatever you want to do. As for having your heart broken, that's just someone else doing whatever they want to do.

Do I sound like I don't like it? Of course I don't like it, I was born at a time when people would make a little sacrifice evdery now and then for the sake of helping someone else achieve their success. It was about us, not me.

I wish it still was.
