because of friends of mine

explanation - my list of suggestions from last night's entry wasn't to scold friends of mine; it was because various friends of mine and i have in one way or another, or lots of ways, been the person feeling inadequate, shamed, addicted, judged. AND friends of mine and i have also been those judging or not seeing - but that wasn't the point.

what is the point? i think the point is seeing. awareness. paying attention. listening. shutting up.
in a busy, digital, electronic, noisy, living-indoors culture, it takes effort to pay attention and look and listen, and really see and hear. after all, what we're really looking for and listening for is ourselves. that may be why we avoid this work sometimes.

but - it's worth it.
