Rumination on Reality

Although the bright blue sky and brilliant sun on my walk this morning should have lifted my spirits, instead I was lost in thought about how anything is really not possible. In a perfect world, maybe, but in this one, no.

If it were, you could walk up to someone you see in the street and just say whatever you wanted to say, with no concern for propriety and no fear of their reaction. It happens in books and it happens in movies, but it's not the kind of thing we risk in real life.

So conversations don't happen and opportunities are missed out of fear. Blue sky and sunshine aside, it's such a shame that this is how the world works.


  1. Yeah, and imagine what the people who say inappropriate things to you would say in that world.

  2. You make a good point. Still I'd like to be able to just say whatever I wanted to to whomever I chose. Call me a dreamer...
