The Ocean

I've always thought that how deep a person's well is, often tells what others are afraid of. For is not the ocean a vast and deep beauty? one who can both show a peaceful, serene scene and a violent storm in the same instances. Most cannot fathom how they would ever come to handle such a beast who shared the same traits. And so has been my dillemma, the reason I've come to understand that others don't know what to do with me....

I am a bit confused. Are you saying that you are difficult because you are deep, stormy and serene all wrapped up in one person?

Things are really not black and white most of the time.
Emotions exist on a continuum - from a smile to a whopping belly laugh.
Things will change as situations change. I think the philosophy of 'The Middle Path' is one to strive for...
This is not always possible or expected.
April, just be the best you that you can be.

Breathe!

Natalie,

The short and easy answer would be for me to say Yes.

The long answer will come as I continue to write my chronicles, and I will try my best to post the next piece tomorrow. Today was a long, long work day as it is nearly 11:30pm for me right now and I started work at 8 this morning..today was Television production day. once I figure out technology better in the next few weeks, I'll learn to "you tube" the productions so that you each can have a glimpse of what we try to do here at Habitat for Humanity.

The secrets of the ocean are often hidden in the wake. The wake can be very violent. Beautiful Wing Seeker.

i'm the calm ripples on water today, and the freightening hurricane tomorrow. i love 'my' people all the more for loving me, accepting me, for that way i am...

and that is the beauty of the human heart...varying shades of serenity and storm.

I agree. A person's personality can be like an ocean. The superficial appearance is not always in line with the underlying turbulence.

If someone does not understand this profound thought, it may be because they do not think this way. I, for one, do understand this analogy.

I think this helps to establish an understanding between you and someone, doesn't it?
