It’s Springtime In Paraland! The birds are chirping happily. The Sun is shining and there is harmony as far as the eye can see. Well so long as you’re are near sighted that is.
Yes Boys and Girls as well as Children of all Ages…The Springtime Para dramas are now coming to the a field near you! Headlines such as “So and So Hates This One And That One.” “He Said That Gizmo Doesn’t Work.” “We Can’t Afford To Do Anything.” “I’ve Got Gas”…er…WAIT! Nevermind. That’s just me as I had chili for lunch…….
You know I’ve been kicking around the field for close to 40 years and at this time every year it seems as if people get a bit thin skinned and take offense really quick. It might be an opinion posted on social media or the subject of a diatribe that no one really wants to hear. But it results in stress, hurt feelings, and maniac giggling from the far right. In any event if you’re going to air your dirty laundry in the public forum expect to get slapped. Not everyone will agree with you, hell not everyone really likes you in the first place…or am I talking about myself? Most probably the last one.
Now I’m not sure if it’s a seasonal disorder? The weather might be chillier and people aren’t outside as much. Maybe people do not have enough vitamin D in their systems. Maybe people are just in general cranky. I dunno…ask a professional, I’m just a schmuck at a keyboard.
Listen my beautiful Children of the Night…Everyone isn’t going to love you. Everyone isn’t going to agree with you. Heck everyone won’t put up with you. But the fact is that NOT EVERYONE CARES ABOUT YOU OR YOUR OPINION! So expect a backlash. Every time I post on social media or even this blog I expect negative comments to flow! It’s called the PRICE of having a voice! You can say “Have A Nice Day” and someone may respond with…FU! Again maybe it’s just me…hmmmm.
As for the term Para Drama it’s not just in the Paranormal Field. It’s in churches, all those metaphysical Love and Light Organizations, even in bowling leagues. There is no real reason for it because it just is.
So put on your big boy Aquaperson undies and face the world! Expect to be called on your shit! When you do, don’t go and say that the person who has an opinion different than yours lives in a bubble or has their head in the sand. Maybe their reality is far more important to them than yours. Maybe they have seen the fall out of social radioactive wars, and maybe, just maybe they might not care about your plight in general. Nothing personal but saying “I DON’T CARE ” takes more guts than posting an eight page manifesto that says nothing of interest to the world.
So as the warm weather sneaks into our lives and all of the pretty, pretty flower bloom remember……When you are dead none of what you have done really matters. Buildings get torn down, monuments crumble, and your self important butt rots into a jelly like glob. Para People Please….do you’re own thing, be creative, and if you don’t get your own way…look towards another direction. I would say play nice but we all know that ain’t gonna happen! At least not in this world..and from what I’ve seen maybe not even the next!
