Keeping life simple

She's got everything delightful
She's got everything I need
A breeze in the pines in the summer night moonlight
Crazy in the sunlight yes indeed

Reality or fantasy. There seems to be a lot of discussion across Blogland these days about the need to seperate the reality from the fantasy of life here..but I wonder whether the side effects may be worse than the ailment..Sure, some folks may get too caught up in the fantasy life here; making it their only world. But I hope they are a minority..and most of the rest of us enter here knowing that Blogland is a respite from the daily grind, an escape hatch from the madness of real life. A new friend here likened it to passing through the Looking Glass..and how true I have found that. I have discovered a whole new world of people whose stories are fascinating, uplifting, arousing, sometimes heart-wrenching, and sometimes just plain demented..but that's the beauty and the intrigue of the whole community. Its like its Mardi Gras every day. If you get tired of having beads thrown at you..take a couple of days off..then return refreshed and ready to dive back into the pool..the water is fine..
Well everybody's dancin' in a ring around the sun
Nobody's finished, we ain't even begun.
So take off your shoes, child, and take off your hat.
Try on your wings and find out where it's at.

Hi NoGlory, hmmmm I agree with alot of what you said. It very much
is like wandering through the looking glass. There are worlds that
open up to you that you might never have known were there..kind of like a rich adventure in an exotic land where the sensations are sharper and times more intense. Very much can be
a wanton and wanted escape from day to day life. I've found it can bring some roundness and richness to you but also a chance to explore
that hidden part of yourself that just maybe you wouldn't have let out (softly laughing maybe shouldn't let out sometimes). All are journeys in some world or another but definitely worth taking the trip now and then..... Vixen

I really try to differiate between fantasy and reality here. It is nice to be able to escape into this wonderland for a while..leaving reality between. Loveme

Hi. Your entry was the one that got me thinking about this..and some others have talked about it too..lot of rumbling under the surface..thought I'd try a little humor..and it truly is a fine way to escape..just have to remember to go back.
