The things people identify with enough to get all emotional about.

I can certainly see how many, if not most, people would not be interested in the things that interest me. But I rap about them anyway from time to time, just to see if anyone else is. To be honest, I find that I often have more spiritual conver- sations in bars than here on FFL. Isn't that interesting? I honestly don't know whether it was the time I spent with the Rama guy or whether it's something I was born with, but I'm more attracted these days to "street spirituality" than I am to "theoretical spirituality." The latter just leaves me cold. But the former, when someone can rap about how their spirituality measured up to the real world, down where the rubber meets the road, that perks my ears up. > --- In FairfieldLife@yahoogroups.com, turquoiseb <no_reply@> wrote: > > > There is NO QUESTION that I rarely stretch myself on FFL > > these days.
