The More You Know...




I know a lot of people.  I work with them.  I even socialize with them.

Occasionally, I get to know them.  At least I think I do.  And they get to know me in the process.  At least they think they do.

I have discovered some things in the last few weeks about myself that I didn't know.  Feelings I didn't know I had.  Fetishes I had never explored, even in my own mind.

In the process I found out about other people too and the perceptions I had of them were altered.  In some cases, shattered.  

We're more alike than we ever knew, or ever will.  The further my boundaries were pushed, the further my understanding of why I even had boundaries in the first place became.  

The answer I was looking for was as plain as the bonds that united and divided us.  I have boundaries so we can destroy them.

  1. Destroying boundaries takes a great deal of strength and courage - two qualities you clearly have in abundance...

  2. I believe that as we let ourselves become closer to the bounderies that we set in our lives the easier it is to push them a bit further and further. So that when we have past the point that we thought we would have "never" gone we find ourselves even more exciting and we keep pushing on into the unknown (with a huge smile on our face). Love your blog btw.

  3. We've learned quite a bit about our own boundaries - and had fun pushing them - the last few years. We've done many things we never thought we'd be able to do - things we assume others we know haven't done - and enjoy planning to break new ones. We would hate to become complacent, after all.

    1. Complacency in our digital world would be tantamount to suicide.
      I meet so many people who never let their imaginations blossom out of whatever need or fear exists within them to hold them back. Thank the stars for this medium of expression.
