Hi. It's me, your thread host. I'd like to welcome you to my humble abode. Please do not mind the odor escaping from the carpet, and please, guard your nostrils, for they are the gate to your lungs. And no one likes mesothelioma. Now now, come! Don't mind that staircase, it doesn't even lead anywhere, only to what you've already seen. Enter in through the doorway, watch your head! Oh lord, I truly must wallpaper this wall soon, just look, it's skin is peeling away, like my good old horny lizard Norman. Oh... oh Norman, how your skin would shine in the light of the morning. Oh... Oh. I'm sorry, I didn't mean to make you uncomfortable, it's a lizard thing. Now, take a seat, choose carefully, I think there may or may not be a rusty nail stuck in one. Oh! haha, I do see our first guest has indeed poked himself, just look at the sight of it. The blood oxidizing and fleeing from it's human prison, wow. That's truly fascinating. Sorry, I'm rambling again. Dinner time! I want every poster here to lift off their lids of their entrees, and see their dinner! Just look at the scrumptious commas, ovulating pleasure with every breath they take! Or perhaps, the alphabet soup? The creamy red of lost poet's blood fuels this literary powow. Just... watch out for the order you swallow the letters, or they may just spell certain death for the unlucky one. Not a soup or live calamari fan? Perhaps just a little snack of sentence fragments, just dip them into the warm, curry based sauce of culture, and welcome into your body the knowledge my table has to offer. Well, what are you waiting for? Dig in! Ok, so that might seem a tad off-topic, but I'm hoping it illicited some sort of reaction to the one I was looking for. So, intuits, how in tune are you with your five senses? A lot? not at all? Do you wish you were more in tuned? Less in tuned? And Sensors! How developed are your 5 senses? When you walk out of the house into the rain can you feel every drop on your skin, soaking into your flesh, and borrowing through the epidermis, shriveling up all left skin? When the wind is blowing fiercely, can you feel every single hair on skin being pulled by mother nature, like a piece of gum in your hair? I guess what I'm aiming for in this topic, just in case it is discombobulated beyond chance of recognition... Is... eh... it's hard to verbalize. [ame="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=P9tbvQu6Iq8"]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=P9tbvQu6Iq8[/ame] Is this how life seems for you? Does that make sense? I'm not too good at verbalizing my thoughts. For example, maybe my "anecdote" may explain what I'm kind of aiming for as a response. ---------------------------------------- Many times, I wish I could experience my senses more than I do. Since we live in a very extraverted, and sensate oriented culture, I've learned it's the norm to be very sensate oriented. Obviously. I long to, for example, take a long walk in the beach, and feel the sand inbetween my toes, stand on top a roof top, and feel the rain, walk down a brisk woody trail in the winter, as the air fills my nostrils and makes me live. Taste a ... carrot cake slice (omg they had those at work today....) and essentially bask in it. But alas, I cannot. Food is just food, some tastes better than others, and I can be a picky eater, but I don't get people who pay $50 more for the same thing. EXCEPT: Name brand sodas. Walmart's dr thunder just does not cut it. at all. Anyways, the wind is just the wind, the rain, is the rain. Of course I can imagine what it feels like almost easily, but I can't... like... Actually feel it. And since I kind of really want to, it drives me... bonkers!! Do YOU (be it N or S) experience experiences akin to Evey's roof top experience, become alive in your sensations, or are they rather dull? I don't know why it's so hard to describe what I want to say.... lol. Again, you may now post!
