Re: Peach Harmonics and the I.S. (Kid Anthem)

"Crucifixes work, but insanity might be better"

I found that Ace on the River contained many bits of wisdom pertaining to life subjects beyond poker. One I want to mention -- and I might misquote, but if I recall correctly Barry claims to not be a superstitious man, but if someone thinks their good luck is coming from a charm, or are just happier with it, it would be wrong to condescend them for using it.

It's possible that with a great enough technology peoples' minds and thoughts could be read. It also might be true that nature, aliens, or even pigeons (birds have been around longer than we have) are able to access our thoughts without our permission. I don't think either scenario is all too likely to be happening now, and if birds had telepathy they surely don't care about my own inner space -- maybe what I'm going to eat for dinner though, but I still really really really don't want to embarrass myself and have overly stupid thoughts, and I happen to like privacy. Still, I find myself anxious over the impossible happening, resulting in internal measures to trim the branches of my thought trees if they seem too ridiculous.

So I end up practicing my own version of cognitive behavioral therapy because of the aliens that I don't believe in hacking into my thoughts and laughing at me. I don't see how that couldn't be labeled an insanity, and yet it is helping me better myself and at maintaining my focus. Inspiration comes in fantastically diverse forms if you're willing to get creative and even a little bit crazy.

Re: Peach Harmonics and the I.S. (Kid Anthem)

I don’t feel comfortable blogging anymore. A long time ago I invented a persona to help better understand my place in the world. A few years ago I took the persona to an extreme and found that I was loved despite being discombobulated. I then merged the persona with my own in an attempt to reveal my own voice without it being noticed as different. I have recently approached myself, and decided that due to not having enough of a handle on my life, at least compared to well adjusted adult people, I won’t be able to further share my thoughts due to a fear of what lies beneath and a petrifying insecurity that I’m not able to shake.

To Mpethybridge:

You were right.

Re: Peach Harmonics and the I.S. (Kid Anthem)

Personally I think it's pretty brave to blog and the fact you do it with petrifying insecurities just makes it even braver and really speaks volumes as to the quality of person you are I hope you change your mind, but that's for my selfish entertainment purposes, so obviously do what's best for you.

Your writing is very interesting. I dont know how to comment on it but I like it. I thought we were headed places when you said you were peeling away membranes. Maybe this is it though. Best of luck in whatever you do.

Most people seem to have more handle on their life than they really have. Your write well and writing things out, also what is underneath, takes the power from it.
