Happy Birthday to my mother today, October 12. She was born October 12th, 1930 in Minneapolis, Minnesota. She was extremely loving and highly intelligent and I never heard her say a negative thing about anyone…never.
She died in 1993, 24 years ago. Missin her today on her birthday.
In today’s fast-paced world, I see so many people compromising their own integrity. It seems to be the way of the world within digital communication, our commute to the workplace and living with our team members at work.
Is it because information is so condensed and fast-paced? The rate that we are I say, attempting to live and assimilate data/information seems to be almost an unreal or surreal experience. Then to top it all off, at least for me, try to remember what it is I need to remember to get “things” done, is at times… exactly that, hit and miss for sure.
I have always felt in my life that I needed to “get it all done” and I now find that statement and or belief almost obsolete in today’s world. I just can’t seem to do it all now.
I don’t do much of this, typing about my inner thoughts, at the moment, so if this is not making much sense, maybe that is the reason why.
Recently I asked Scary about the inset photo on his FB account (was this him before the facial tattoos?) He said it was and this was my response to him:
Wow! So different. I’m curious as to what made you choose to tattoo your face knowing how people would treat you for this choice? Why on your face? Most people just do body from neck down & most limit the number to just a few. You also knew how people treat those who had tattooed at least a little on their place. You chose that decision where many of the individuals you talk to have differences that nature (God) gave to them so they had no control over.
I wonder this because I have many people think that other’s choose to be different in being gay, overweight, etc. (I don’t think they have a choice myself) & respond that why would someone choose to be different and face the things that other people say to them?
It suddenly dawned on me that people are responding in a way that shows their preferences in what they find attractive and people who don’t fit that image are made to feel uncomfortable in order to try to “shame them” into conforming. Kudos to you to be able to stand up for yourself. In a way you are a human diamond–you took the untattooed you and withstood the pressures of society and became a diamond.
