Hello everybody - anybody.

Thought I would raise this thread because I have split personality syndrome.

I am one day a coffeehouse talker then I bore the pants off the customers who just wanting a nice light chat.

I need encouragement to kick off - have you any suggestions? - been around now for a few years - but still a child in some areas of my persona - keeps me young I suppose.

Politics - well our distance makes this perhaps impossible - I used to create talking / thinking topics. so I will try one out now.----------------------------------------------
A BRAVE NEW WORLD

The earth has become so polluted our species are doomed.

There is only one spaceship and fuel left to carry two crew members to another planet to start a new colony.

The world council is gathered to consider who will be chosen to crew this ship - of course both genders are required.

A list of 6 society mores must be introduced into this new generation of mankind .

OK

Some rules to follow -

You can chose any age of person - persons perhaps of history long gone - to man your ship.

The characters must be well known and easy for us to identify with.

When you chose your crew members state why you think they qualify to start a new generation.

Do not consider fertility - we have invented a pill to make the old and dead fertile.

Thought I would start with a light topic first ( smile)

You didn't bore anyone at all, Anam. Quite the contrary. But I think sometimes people get used to the well-worn rug of things. I don't want you to leave there permanently though!!

Interesting topic, gives me something to ponder. Will think on it and get back to you. I personally like threads like this mixed amongst the other ones because like I've said in the past, I think when you are doing the heavy stuff, it's good to go to something light and reflect, take your vision off of things for a minute and re-focus. Creativity does much for the brain!!

Hi Anam,
You didn't bore anyone, but I think sometimes it helps when you have your own thread because it is easier for you to go back and pull up that thread and read the responses and see how far you have come or what has been going on. You can always write anything on the coffeehouse thread though. Look at me and how many times I have written about feeling down or lonely or needy or whatever. We all need people and we need to connect. I hope that you always feel welcome to post wherever you want.

You chose a good topic but my brain is dead for the night. It is very interesting though and I will come back to it at a later time. I just have no creative juices flowing tonight. 🙂

How about Adam and Eve...they were well known figures 🙂

The reason I would pick them because they are mature enough to knows what happens so less likely to do it again the same way....thus leaving all the apples at home.

I think it would have to be two people who are physically fit, smart enough (scientist or doctor), creative enough (architect, builder or engineer), open minded enough and above all someone who is NOT political.

I think it's hard using just two people though, because of all the different races, colors, cultures, religions, etc.

How do we pick????.........

We're doomed......and now I'm frustrated.

Just send me and Brad Pitt, we'll be fine lol

BRAVE NEW WORLD CREW

Ok - ! would chose a comedian as the male - Spike Milligan who created the 'GOONS'
He wrote most of his funniest lines when he was in hospital on the verge of a nervous breakdown. I choose him for the alternative ways he viewed our world - poked fun at the status quo- his near madness appeals to me. As Adam he would make Eve laugh.

My women - well no difficulty with this choice - I would send Lady Diana Spencer - she gave her love without question to a man whom loved another - whilst bedding her to produce an Heir for the Kingdom.

A deceived - betrayed - life - she would in my opinion bring love and affection to her new world.
-------------------------------------------
My six mores.

1 Do not kill anything.

2 Do not abuse anything - our children are our future - post this sign everywhere!

3 Love one another.

4 Eliminate wealth.

5 All to receive the best of education.

6 Stamp out prejudice!

OK - over to you -- bel are you there?

I can think of one person I'd want to send....

My oldest daughter...she just turned 12. She is the smartest, kindest, brightest, funnest. She is trustworthy and she has such inner beauty and strength. She is very imaginative and not afraid to speak her mind. She would be perfect to start a new world.

Don't ask me to pair her off to pro-create....I can't quite do that yet!!

Needed you to make contact - had a really wonderful day with the girls.

Les Miserables was JUST wonderful!
Standing ovation - the girls were quite all through but I could see them leaning forward enraptured.I had the tears to hide before the lights went up - Guess I am a little near to tears most of the time.

We had a snack at Fourtnum Mason - Then latter we had a meal in The Rain Forest Cafe in Picardilly.

Wish you could all have been with us - but actually you were not far out of my mind.

Leaving here today Guidforrd to travel onto Bath - Looking for a little home near my son David.

I wiil be glad to tell you about Bill - I will compose the story at Bath and post it to the coffeehouse to share with all.

I have read some more of your comments on other threads - you seem to be another women of my dreams --- don't tell bel!

Oh Anam....I am so sorry that you are tearful. Remember, its ok.

Glad that you are taking good care of yourself. Will be looking forward to hearing from you soon.

Things will get better. I promise.
I have known the wound that you are carrying. It will subside and fill with more love. When one door shuts, another one opens. Just open it slowly ok.

Big Hug...and safe travels.

I cried alot when I watched that movie. My daughter sang one of the songs...."There is a castle in a cloud" was it Cossette?
She was a sophomore in HS and won a first place in the National competition. I was one proud momma.

I have a hard time with recall of late. I hope its not dementia.

Hope you find your castle in Bath...look forward to hearing from you when you get settled.

The six mores I would suggest for a civilized society are as follows:

1.Daily prayer/meditation

2.Healing

3.Acceptance

4.Love

5.Positive Affirmations

6.Balance

Welcome back Anam. Your presence was missed. I think you are wise in taking your time and making just the right decision as far as a new home. At least you know that you will always have a "home" on here with all of us.

Hi TS

Thank you - I missed talking to you also - you have all kept me going over so many lonely moments of my life - I am very much at home with you all - you let me talk and get my fears out - across the pond.

What gladens my soul is that I can take you my friends with me to Bath when I move. I will never be alone again. The coffee house has no boundries - wonderful place!

You are all such a joy to me.
LOL.

The Story of MJ 🙂

Why I came to AAC (All about Counseling)

My life was unmanageable. I was searching for answers and happened upon this site, by chance, luck, or pure destiny. I started reading what others posted and I liked the fact that I could have a conversation anonymously. I had a lot of fears and still do.

I had never chatted online and didn't even know what people meant when they said chat lines. I just knew that I wanted to be accepted for me. Something that has been very foreign to me.

I have found that after a year of posting here, that I have the same problems here as I do in my life.

I am becoming alot more aware of myself and my interactions with others. The cool thing about this site is you can go back and read your posts from the past...sorta like a journal gone public 😉

If you want me to be real...open...vulnerable and honest...and less generalities that is harder for me.

But I will give it a whirl...and see if I have changed much.

My biggest problem is rejection. I abhor it. I don't like to be criticized either. I am sensitive. I want to be able to openly express my feelings and be accepted as who I am.

My parents are in their 70's. I love them both very much. They divorced when I was 12. I don't have contact with my father, not by my choice.
My mother likes to play martyr and victim and angers easily if provoked. I think I learned these traits 😉

My daughters are grown adults living in different states. My grandchildren are adorable, 5 now!
I don't get to see them only once a year which seems totally not enough but I love it here and they love it there so I have learned to accept our geographical distances and limited resources.

My current husband is an alcoholic. He doesn't think he is. He just got his 3rd DUI. goes to court next Tues. He can be the most loving and kind man and in a heart beat the biggest asshole. We have been married 2 short years. He is my 4th marriage.
I know too well the jumping into things without thinking it through.

I am trying to stayed focus on what I can do for myself. I can show up, share, and try to figure out which foot to put in front of the other.

I have a degree in Art/Photography. I don't do Photography any more.

I came here to fix myself. Do YOU think it is working? One day at a time.

I use to feel soooo alone. Now I don't. I still have problems, but am learning to look for solutions. And I feel very lucky to have made lots of friends who are supportive on a daily basis. It is way cool. So....that's why I am here. 🙂

Hi MJ

Thanks for sharing - I see that you are a kind soul and will meet PLU (people like us) face to face about most things - yes I agree that these boards are almost a diary of our daily lives - but these days I try not to read back cos it brings out much hurt - I trust I have not done the same to you.

Art -well well - we have another thing in common - rejection yes have a real problem with that also - sensitive - criticism - lived with that daily for 15 years and tried my dandiest to love back the person whom gave out. I wonder why people have need for it -to make them feel good I suppose? Not that I think I am perfect in any way - lived happily with my first wife for 32 years so I have some sort of measure to stand by my character.

Fixing yourself - well I am sure that when you look back over your many words you will accept the improvement that is in evidence.

Yes like you - I want my other self to be heard - it gives me a great lift talking to you all over there.

People who need people - that's what we are - but it is sometimes hard to locate the right sort!

Anam the not perfect !
