, I've no idea why you're apologising, you're totally welcome to be here and to chime in!
I wish there was a love button - that was such a wonderful, heartfelt, insightful, wise, super-articulate post from you - thank you so much for writing it.
It makes my day to know that there are people like you in this world - beacons of light in an often dark place. This will make such a difference to so many people - and other creatures! I'm particularly over the moon when it's younger people who are articulating such things. I'm GenX, a really rotten generation in many ways, my leaving yearbook was full of cited ambitions like "I want to be a millionaire by the time I'm 25!" and "I want to get rich and to get laid as much as possible!" and "I want to have a villa in France and a jet-boat and marry a photographic model!" blah blah blah (we should request a vomit emoji; here's an imported one:
Oops, that a bit big!
The first generation I taught were GenY, and such an improvement on what my generation had been. I'm often reminded of the saying, "Change happens one funeral at a time!"
It feels good to know that there are people being born who are going to be an improvement on the world average attitude. That you're still going to be here and shining your light when I'm dust. Great stuff - thank you!
My DH loves Firefly
and tried to sell it to me several times. I'm not instantly hooked - probably the environment putting me off - I'm not as much of a SciFi buff as he is. But I did really adore Wonderfalls
, and if I'm not mistaken, I think there's a common production element to that somewhere... And I love Dead Like Me
I'll tear myself away now, everyone, and actually do some work!
Have a great evening, and remember, the coffee is in the pantry over there!
