Often I feel like sister from another planet in that I seem to look at life through a different set of lenses. For example:
I actually liked the period during which we had one car. It slowed us down. It felt good. It felt right.
I wish all our towns were connected with trains and buses and even passenger boats drifting down waterways.
I don't think the government does everything wrong. I think they handle many programs well.
I don't agree with the sentiment: "If their own parents don't care about them, why should we?" when children are in trouble. On that note, I didn't like the parties in elementary school given for the children whose parents got the school forms back "on time." Should a child whose parents are so disorganized or have so many problems they can't get the school forms back be doubly punished? When I would say that, I would hear "If their own parents don't care about the, why should we?" Then I would feel angry. And then I would feel ... like sister from another planet.
Well, the list could go on. Almost daily. It can make one despairing, frustrated or misanthropic, but then it gets back to ... ...loving people anyway, looking at life through their lenses, not judging ... accepting that the world won't conform to my ideas and that's probably a good thing ... any other ideas?
Same anyone? Additions to the list? It could go on and on and on .... :)
