fantasy vs. reality

life is hard!
even having fun is hard!
for me, anyway.

i like things, also, tho.
so we keep going. the hard stuff is how the good stuff is possible?
i don’t know.
it’s confusing.

i edit out the mole i have on my chin which is visible in the top pic.
for me, it just detracts from fotos by being distracting!
austin powers. moley moley moley!!!

one of those things, tho, that’s diff irl than in pics.
and there are A LOT of things.
photos and blogs and social media are NOT a real representation of a human being. now, if you KNOW that person… their online persona is usually fine with you because you get it. but what if you KNOW a person and their online persona is even faker than their irl persona?
that’s hideous. off-putting.

i can’t deal with a lot of superficiality, which is why i tend to be a hermit.

visiting family this weekend is a perfect example.
reality can hit hard.
differences of world view and lifestyle…. city mouse/country mouse sort of thing.

i tend to live at a snail’s pace.
levels of stimulation are kept to a controlled minimum, in my neck of the woods.

kind of like a slow roll, i guess?

i’m an introvert.

it was nice to hang around the marina/harbor. there was just a lot of other constant bombardment with stimulus pretty much non-stop that kinda took a toll on me after a bit? combine that with any level of sleep deprivation and riding in a car for seven hours blah blah blah you know how it is, right?

but as life always is, moments of joy and pleasure and inspiration fall between the cracks or something. what i mean to say is….

“For the great majority of mankind are satisfied with appearances, as though they were realities, and are often more influenced by the things that seem than by those that are.”
– Niccolo Machiavelli

    Wow that quote at the bottom is profound. Especially splattered on the blog of someone who takes pics of herself trying on clothes and sitting on her ass.
