Never alone…

I come home from work and nobody’s here. I open the windows and hear the birds chirping. We’re never alone, peeps. ❤️

I was thinking about this more this morning, thinking of how limited I am when I live only in my own head, confine myself to only what I see in front of me.

When I’m home alone I’m regularly reminded of my aloneness. The sounds of my feet on the whitewashed plywood bounce around the walls. Just the same as my thoughts bounce around in my own head. Existing at best in an echo chamber. Inside and out.

Life is so much bigger than my dining room, than the four walls of my house. When I open the windows and expose my ears to something more…I remember that. I hear the wind in the trees with their leaves gently clapping. The birds singing to each other and that little puppy dog yapping next door. I hear the cars motoring to and fro and the neighbors living their lives just a stone’s throw away.

Opening the windows brings those sounds inside, fills my space with the conviction that we’re never alone. There’s a life-force inside all of us that bonds us together just because we’re living beings. It doesn’t matter if we’re feathery birds or green oak leaves or frumpled, crumpled human beings or chatty puppy dogs. We’re all linked just because we are. A network of neurons each transmitting our pulses to one another in the global space. That’s almost too corny but whatever.

A network of neurons each transmitting our pulses to one another in the global space

The only thing I need to do is open the window to un-sever that connection.

Sounds riding their waves. It’s a magical thing for the lonely soul.

It’s funny that I have access to the whole world by way of the internet. But when I sit on my phone my life feels small and shallow. When I open the window life is full and big.

Thank god for Spring. Winter makes me wanna fly over the cuckoo’s nest.

We live together, we act on, and react to, one another; but always and in all circumstances we are by ourselves. The martyrs go hand in hand into the arena; they are crucified alone. Embraced, the lovers desperately try to fuse their insulated ecstasies into a single self-transcendence; in vain. By its very nature every embodied spirit is doomed to suffer and enjoy in solitude. Sensations, feelings, insights, fancies – all these are private and, except through symbols and at second hand, incommunicable. We can pool information about experiences, but never the experiences themselves. From family to nation, every human group is a society of island universes. - Huxley

Aare your videos intended on being creepy, they have gotten my interest

tcr! tcr! · Jan 9, 2021 at 8:10 am

That’s awesome! The videos are just more momentary expressions. So whatever I got going on is what comes out.

TomRiddle · Jan 15, 2021 at 5:43 am

Oh, so its kinda like venting but not all sad? Its like writing in a journal and sharing your thoughts. That actually really cool!

tcr! tcr! · Jan 15, 2021 at 8:52 am

Absolutely that. A spoken, video journal. Although the videos of this type always do start out on paper. Good for the soul to get whatever out.
