The Sounds of Blogland

It's no secret that I'm a people watcher. I love airports for that reason.....I could just watch people coming and going.....and imagine the stories behind the good bye kisses and hello hugs.

That's probably why I love blogland so much. It is like living in a huge apartment building with people from all kinds of walks of life. And even's kind of like having x-ray vision and being able to look behind the doors and into the lives of all of you.

As I travel through blogland, I hear all kinds of sounds. The laughter of genuine happiness....the sobs of sorrow. I hear the joy in newfound love or the catch in the throat as you hold a newborn baby. I hear the tears of uncertainty......the sadness in being alone. I hear the sound of pain.....pain of a broken heart....the loss of a loved one. Or the worst of all....personal pain in the possible end of life.

So tell you travel through blogland...what kind of sounds do you hear? What kind of sounds are you drawn to? What sounds do you run from?

You have nailed it perfectly. I like the analogy of the apartment complex. As watchers, we tend to create little fantasies about what we observe. Every morsel of information we glean adds to the picture. Right now I am watching 5 blogs and cruising others. There is one blog on my watch list I am having trouble with. The person whines all the time. I am forcing myself to watch in hopes I will be more open to the pain this person is in. Not easy for me to do. I am compassionate but also a person of action. I usually gravitate to the blogs that are funny or thought provoking.

There is a difference between a good BJ and a bad BJ.

Canyaz.....what a wonderful comment! And I'm so happy you stopped by here today. I know what you mean....but I am glad that you are forcing yourself to watch for awhile and hope for the best at that blog. I watch about 60 blogs....and I'll watch yours now too!

What sounds do you run from?

Well, I personally know the answer to this one.
I run from DRAMA. It makes me feel suffocated.

Otherwise, I'm drawn to the sounds of friendships here, the like minded and the different minded, like me Oh, me wee mind.

AND the voice of a friend that cares.
How can you resist that?
Thank you, for being a voice in my life.

Hey angel -
Just took a jump into your profile - I love putting the little hand right where your nipple would be and giving it a click - did ya feel it?
That explains it though - the "12 hours and waiting" that is - I thought you were in Texas, so that was where I went - couldn't find ya and came back home . Maybe next time

It's funny - I become personally involved within myself. I feel sorrow for the pain - and joy with happiness .. as we've all stated a hundred times .. it's like a famn damily. There are only a handful of you who visit my site regularly - and that is OK with me - no complaints at all - but, the point is - the handful become very important to me and I start to love them, even though I do not know much more about them than I read in their blogs.
The only ones I shy from are the ones who write ONLY about sex - there is so much more - real thoughts - real feelings - life experiences and thoughts about it.
As far as people watching? I LOVE people watching - though I never see any fellas walking around - I know they're there - I just don't seem to see them

Have a good day Angel, fortuna

angelofmercy5 replies on 7/10/2006 12:51 pm:
Fortuna.....oh no! 12 hours in Texas waiting???? I feel awful about that! But I loved your comment honest man who admits to people watching the women mostly!

its like you dun know them... but u know them well, all at the same time.

its like looking through a peephole or a window or a small crack in the door, you smile, cry, frown - participate in their lives without being in it, without intruding if u choose not to.

its like having so many friends and not feel dissapointed cos' there is no expectations for them to feel you the way you do them.


angelofmercy5 replies on 7/10/2006 12:52 pm:

I feel all those things as well. Blogland holds a special place in my heart and I have made many friends here As long as we accept the criticism along with the compliments we are good.

I'll have a cafe, mocha, vodka, valium latte to go please!

Good girls go to heaven.....bad girls go down!!

angelofmercy5 replies on 7/10/2006 12:54 pm:
MWW....we certainly must accept the criticism along with the compliments! That's what makes this place so special.

I also love hearing the sounds and being even a small part of all these conversations. I love to celebrate with those who are celebrating and I am always happy to give a hug to those who are sad and depressed. I will honestly pray for those who are in need of healing, both emotional and physical) but I am somewhat frightened by someone facing death. It's not that I'm afraid of death, it's just that I don't know what to say.

I am really angered by those who would deceive others and those who are thoughtless with other peoples emotions. This may be cyber-space and the relationships are often only in our minds but mean people suck!

angelofmercy5 replies on 7/10/2006 5:45 pm:
VAT....good comment! And I think mean people suck too!

what a wonderful way to frame this whole experience here. I look for sounds of creativity and joy. But I will not shy away from sadness and sorrow, given that I know the person(s) feeling as such.

The only sound I will deliberately and consistently avoid is that of self-pity. As I believe Ayn Rand once wrote, "the only sin is to stop trying." I think self pity is the morass into which the quiters fall.

great post Angel!

I'm sitting on a bench in the Blog-Mall of earth. Thousands of people are aimlessly scurrying along. I see someone new wonder in, searching to cure an unsaid need, then wander off alone, dejected. Another runs through, barely looking through the window panes; in a hurry to be somewhere else. Then comes a third ... walking slowly ... searching every inch of this massive room. Her eyes settle on me. She walks up, examines me closely; looks deep into my eye and says ...

"Nice Blog!" Then she walks away.

angelofmercy5 replies on 7/10/2006 5:47 pm:
Look.....WOW! This comment was good enough to be a blog itself! Thank you so much. I love the blog mall connotation.

blogland is like Dante's inferno sometimes

other days - it's ElDorado

i hear sighs, smiles, laughter, chuckles, deep throated moans

i hear whispers, snide snickers, grandiose chest thumping

i seek out the sighs and laughter - if a blog resonates with me, i return to it again and again
and like Maggielicious - i avoid the drama - what's the point??

thank you for your kind wishes of late - btw did you know you resonate? like wood chimes in a summer's breeze

You cannot conceive the many without the one.

angelofmercy5 replies on 7/10/2006 5:48 pm:
I agree with you Wicked! And thank you for saying that I resonate.....that was a nice compliment.

I hear all kinds of sounds...laughter, sadness, happiness, desire etc...I have two pages of watched blogs lol..and sometimes it's not possible to comment on every one of them...but I am reading them ...Sometimes I might take someone off the list if I don't relate to them...and some days I will add new people...and I have some people on the list that haven't blogged in months...but it is always fun to go back and read them now and again

Hello Angel,

I am drawn to those who are lonely, hurting and lost. My compassion takes a hold of me and there is no turning away. I also love the intellectual meaty stuff like that of Connor's and somethingelse40. Funintheday is one of my favourite's for he is witty, intelligent and a real story teller with great imaginations.
The funny one's like Maverick's, Alamo...gosh so many to mention...I love the variety...never boring.
The erotic one's are okay but not on my top of the list.
Those whose writers or authors are young adults I love most. Their thinking is so free and honest.

angelofmercy5 replies on 7/10/2006 5:51 pm: mentioned some great ones! I guess variety is the spice of life!

We're generally moved by the sound of first person narratives, where our fellow adults actually let down their guard and tell it like it is. The sound of excitement over an upcoming romp, the sound of regret over missed opportunities, the sound of life.

I'm with Maggie. I hate the drama but I love the rest. Particularly the smiles you can sometimes feel through the computer screen. They have a sound... I'm just not sure I can describe it.

Life, I hear life...and I love sharing that with everyone I meet. I tend to stay away from mean spirited people, or people who are just plain negative...I also LOVE meeting face to face with people that I've met here in Blogland...I'm only been disappointed once, and even that wasn't so bad. Love visiting with you.

I make mistakes, I am out of control & at times hard to handle. But if you can't handle me at my worst, then you sure as hell don't deserve me at my best. ~Marilyn

Angel....All our lives we have to hide our penis, or our vagina, our breast, even our anus as if these important parts of our bodies either didn't exist or were bad. Here we can talk about them, or show them to each other and be accepted as sexual and thinking, caring, fun, creative and very interesting people. To me it is exhilerating to connect compasssion and sexuality. It's been missing from literature, art everything and here we can express it, play with it, ask for it, learn that we aren't isolated or perverts. We are people living fully and well.
Right here, right now,we are all explorers, Asstronuts on the cutting edge of the sexual frontier.
Big hug for ya' Angel cuz you're a sweetheart....

angelofmercy5 replies on 7/10/2006 8:13 pm:
Panthiest.....I have gotten the best comments on this blog post! I love the term "Asstronuts"! But you are right! We are free here in a way we cannot be in real life! Thank you for bringing this out!

Right now I hear the sound of butterfly wings and the ocean...

I'm a people watcher too. But in the blogs, I find myself
attracted to people with a sense of humor. I completely
stay away from drama mongers and cliques. I had enough of
that in high school, don't need it here.

I tend to follow recommendations. Cru sent me to you and
I've enjoyed your blog more than you know, girl. LOL

I like to think of blogland as a large roman bath house. Everyone is mingling, chatting. Socializing at its best. Listening to the whispers and soft talks. Naked women everywhere. Hard cocks here and there.
Drinks of good wine, and hot bread for snacking. Then goat meat for dinner.
Toga, toga, toga....

Carpe Diem

I run to the happiness side of the room, I love hearing about people FINDING what there looking for here, I also love hearing about different peoples lives and What goes on in the little worlds.

BUT I try and stay away from the painful ones, the ones that hurt! For this will suck me in faster, than the speed of LIGHT!

OOPS...I have NO regrets about this......THIS is how I met you ANGEL! in your time of need....I reached for you, and gave you a GREAT BIG HUGS!

Sometimes I hear laughter, sometimes a crowded room--people chit chatting{mzhuny's}lol, thens there's erie silence of pain, whimpers of ones crying out for someone, sometimes I hear hearts breaking in two, tears falling, other times I hear moaning and alot oh ohhhhs and ahhhhhs...hehe, or the full blown screaming orgasms that usually make my jaw drop...sometimes I read about someone's kids and can almost hear them giggling, mostly I can almost hear the Love, and offering of friendship...almost like when you hug someone and they make that...MMMMM sound! Then I hear....Moooommmmmmmm!! and I snap out of it! Nice post sweetie!

I follow some blogs regularly, check in on some of the new ones, and a few others as time permits. I enjoy sharing the fun others report, and share the sorrows because it's the neighborly thing to do. It's said that sharing multiplies joy and divides sorrow. I try to do my part in that arithmetic.

Is it an apartment, or an old-fashioned telephone party line?


angelofmercy5 replies on 7/10/2006 8:21 pm:

The sounds of laughter that make you cheer.
The sounds of crying that bring a tear.
The sounds of hope that make us strong.
The sounds of despair when we go wrong.
The sounds of silence when we are lost.
The hands of a friend at all costs.

Hold a hand out to those who need, you'll never now what it may bring.

I hear the sound of a soulful sax echoing through the stairway of a thirteen story building full of apartments with glass walls, ceilings and floors. It plays a blue song amid the flurries of red activity and green thougths. Each note becomes a part of the walls and the people within those walls and they are richer for it and it for them. The melody rises and drifts above the clouds, becoming rain which nourishes the dwellers below. Sax is life.


angelofmercy5 replies on 7/10/2006 8:25 pm:
Tenor.....there is nothing more beautiful and haunting than a sax played well. I play the piano.....and I can put alot of emotion into the music.....but nothing like the sax can convey. What a wonderful comment....and I hope you will stop by my blog often!

Hey Angel,
I've just recently started to blog, and what a blast.
In my life I've had quite a few bad times and some good.
Blogs have allowed me to speak up about life and some of the lessons I've learned.
One thing I will always believe in, Life is short, Live to the fullest, and always be nice. You don't have to be an ass hole to live life, just be nice and enjoy.
I guess that the Canadian in me talking.
So in around about way i'm saying the sounds of the blog i hear is the freedom to speak, wether it is heard or not don't be affaid to speak ones mind. AND BE NICE

I guess the statement holds true... "theres always someone out there that has it worse than u do"... I sincerly do wish everyone much happiness in their quest to find whatever it is they are looking for.. Have a good day

What sounds scare me off?

Does self pity,no body loves me ring any bells?Trying to win a race to the most top responder or writer in blogs?Show off's and smart asses I steer away from,boastful, proud,haughty, blogs.Don't get me wrong, I believe in self praise but people tend to over dramatize it/themselves.
