I’m not in the middle of something, but I feel that I need to be…  Let say there are two people who love each other, but have a tendency to keep an emotional score card.  What does this mean?  It means I’m getting to deal with these two people in a remote sort of way.  I’ve pissed one of them off, and the other isn’t talking so I don’t hear the other side of the story, so here I am forced to hear just the one side and think to myself there has to be more…  Of course there’s more to the story, there always is, but since we’re only getting the one side it’s hard to not take sides, but then I’m Switzerland when it comes to emotional attachment as proven with my own relationships (which is not necessarily a good thing).

So I’m not in the middle of this one, but I have some pretty loud opinions when it comes to the parties involved I’m going to put myself in the middle.  Where I stand at the moment is the deep urge to smack both adults involved around for a while and do some shouting that they’re both fucking up on so many levels.  The most important of which involves the children…

I guess I’m all full of opinions about the whole situation and I’m not happy about any of them, but I’m also not in the relationship in question and I know from experience that I can’t know what’s going on with the two adults in question, but I do know this, if the children are affected in an adverse way I’m going to get involved and no one will be happy when that happens…

What a ride

I’ve been low tech blogging, in other words using a journal and writing wherever I might feel like it instead of being tied to technology in some way.  So I thought I would take the time to transfer from the low-fi to the high-fi all while sitting in a bar in Vancouver while on a well deserved holiday weekend.

The people I’ve met in the last two years have been incredible, the new friends the new connections and the possibility of seeing them all again someday makes me happy.

I was thinking of the story “The Places You’ll Go” the other day and I had the sudden realization that I’ve flown around the world more than once, I went from looking towards settling down in the Northwest and working in theatre low those many years ago.  Now I’m looking at where I can go next, what will I do next, who will I meet and where will I meet them?

Never stop exploring might replace my personal motto, yes I know it’s a tag line from some outdoor gear company, but hey it’s a good motto to have.  In my life I’ve changed from a very region centric to a very global outlook.   I like the idea of traveling the world and experiencing new things, new places and just having fun while doing it.

I’ve been thinking about a bucket list of places I want to go before I die, not that I’m going to die tomorrow, but who knows what might happen.  So far the places that rank pretty high on the list are all of South America, Antarctica, more of Asia and all of Africa.  Someone asked me the other day if I had a million dollars what would I do with it?  My answer is simple, pay off the debt I have and the debt some other folks I know have, put my things in a pack and head out for the first place on the bucket list.  Life is too short to be taken seriously, you need adventure to make your life worth living.  I’m not saying traveling and living out of a backpack is what you should do, but you shouldn’t be 100% comfortable with your life, there should be something to keep you on your toes, after all isn’t the point of life to live?
