“Why of all the people on the globe to light me up like that, does it have to be a crazy person?” I asked Linda a couple weeks ago, laughing my ass off. “I mean really, only two people in my life have been able to do that. Now this?”
She didn’t miss a beat, “Ummm, Diane, like either of your Mike’s were actually sane?” sarcasm and irony dripping off her good-natured words.
Before I could draw a breath to make a smartass reply? It hit me. She nailed me, it, totally. I literally did the face-palm and said, “Well,” the full exhale made the second word a whisper, “shit.” Then laughed even harder.
I had been explaining to her how it worked for me, that slam-rush when someone thought of you, that psychic connection that sounds like so much utter tripe to a normal person.
I did it just now, you see. (11~something am) Was surfing you tube, and chatting away on 2 pages on FB, when WHAM it hit me, I looked up and decided to hit the site meter of another site right EXACTLY as the lost-Mike (not the Dead-Mike, obviously) hit the page. This time, he didn’t read me. Another night? I had written the time down on my wrist to prove a point to her while playing yahtzee at her house. We came back here, and lo and behold – the EXACT time he had read me. Not useful at all. I normally totally ignore it, other than to make a point that I really CAN do it. I mean, he is as gone as the dead one from my life, so why hasn’t that tie ended?
Its of no use to me at all, then, this so-called gift. I mean, what the fuck, universe or evolved other-70% of my brain that apparently I get the joys of using? My kindreds have never been sane. Or perhaps I am not. Or perhaps alike’s really do attract, worse, connect, and neither/all of us are not quite sane. I have NO idea. All I know, is that all of them and I have fought like cats and dogs, at least part of the time. And that I love them fiercely whether or not we could stand being around one another in the long run. It is to laugh, right?
But I didn’t come to talk about that, this is the result of another thread talking about technology. I want to talk about a thought-provoking comment by David Williams on Journey with RoundTree7’s FB page…..
It began with me defending books over Kindles and Nook’s… and ended up with me thinking about string theory and human connectivity.
