Things that amaze me at 3 in the morning

Originally uploaded by destinyuk*.
When I ought to be asleep, but after two nights of twelve-hour mids and three days of sleeping in the afternoon, my sleep cycle is screwed up... I'm feeling like these youngsters, but haven't had the alcohol and drugs...

So, things that amaze me:

That words can inflame;

That sarcasm, cynicism, and irony aren't recognized or appreciated;

That some people can't discern between words and actions;

That the internet is both a place which encourages transparency and which allows for complete anonominity;

That even at the age of forty-four, I seem to evoke strong feelings in people;

That some people don't really believe in political discourse or democracy;

That understanding that disagreement doesn't mean contempt isn't seen by everyone;

That anyone can think that one or two blog entries defines a person, particulary when the other 800 entries haven't been read;

That some people still think followership means to be blind;

That some people still think leadership means to dictate;

That noticing differences is easier than noticing similiarities;

That anger doesn't do anyone any good and only eats away at the heart;

That good men and women can agree to disagree while still believing in the same vision... and that some people just can't bring themselves to allow a disagreement to lie fallow;

That pettiness is still alive and well;

That there are those who are forthright and those who aren't;

That humor evades some pucker-faced people...

I'm sure there's more, but instead of blogging, I'm going to catch a few hours of sleep.

My thanks to all of you who continue to drop by and visit... those who are supportative and, yes, those who aren't so supportive... Dialogue is a great thing...
