Together

Tell me your thoughts
You share my reflections

Tell me your desire
You share my wants

Share with me your life
You share my existence

Speak to me your promise
I will break to you no vows

Be with me
I am with you

Be One
And all is done

For we as one
Have but begun

The perfect conversation

Have you ever tried to really communicate with someone. Yearned for that perfect conversation that comes too seldom and leaves too quickly, leaving you with emptiness and the fear that you may never again feel the same clarity as you did mid sentence? I am searching for the perfect conversation…

People are too fearful to be open, to think upon those unspoken truths of life and death and what ever fills the in-between. I am here to ask those questions. Those philosophical questions. We go together through these questions into the unknown, for we may never know. Yet…we have hope, because it is in our nature to hope and to ask.

In the process of asking these questions I ask you the readers to ask…ask what is filling your soul…what is filling your thoughts. Ask so that we the readers may feel confidence in the unknowing and share with one another.

I begin by asking one question. Mind you there are no answers we are just building towards something greater than one mind. A civilization of thoughts. We build the imaginary world of thought into a reality. Please share your questions so that we may build the perfect conversation.

“The time has come,” the Walrus said,”To talk of many things…” (Lewis Carroll)

Life
Fact of existence…

“Life is as tedious as a twice-told tale, vexing the dull ear of a drowsy man” (Shakespeare)

Imagine life in the context it is…day to day drone of ordinary, then surprises…new things…occupy time…what have we but a damaged world, a beautiful world, a sad world, a new world to the born, an old to the dying. What next? What have we next? Life is a treasure discovered hidden beneath the sea. A secret found within pages of old text. A language lost with the sounds of time. A breath swept among the winds of change.
What is life?

Knowledge

“I know nothing except the fact of my ignorance”- Socrates

“Knowledge itself is power”- Frances Bacon

“The years teach you much which the days never know”- Emerson

Mission

One must try to think
Understand
Appreciate

One must try to interpret
learn
Accept

One must try to Live
Love
Acknowledge

Infinite though,
coming to an end

One must experience Life
Purposeful
Enigmatic

One must complete the Mission
To learn…
And continue learning

Give up

Is it better to give up?
Throw in the towel and run the other way?
What if God hands you a crap hand?
Can you fold your cards and choose the hand to play?

I know People for whom Life has been generous with the misfortunes
Reeling in sorrow after sorrow, not letting there head crest above the water
I know of whom God has rested special interest in
seeing them reach their points and accept their limits

I want to know is it better to just give up…
Do we fight it…
Do we accept it…
Do we do something to fix it?

Why should we have to fix it?
Life should be what we make of it.
True.
But what of Life is there
If all there is is sadness?
