back to the conversation over here. Lol. I went to the grocery store in town here recently. This is becoming quite the little hot spot! Hahaha So, the young man grabs my cart to push it out to my car and load up the groceries for me. (I love that, lol.) And he asks me where the nearest mountain range is. Hmmm. Well, I thought about it for a second, and I suggested that possibly the Ouachita Mountains would be closest. That was an odd question, I asked him why he was wondering about mountains.
"Well," he says, "you know there are people talking about the flat earth..."
At the grocery store. In the parking lot. With a young person, had to be between 18 and 22 years old. In a super religious town. Full of uneducated, unexperienced, closed-minded... (Yes, this is about where I told myself to get my own shit in check.)
I tuned back in, and off we went. In the end, I advised him to be a little more cautious about starting up a conversation with that little tidbit.
But really...that's what I always say. I always, and I mean always, get into these odd conversations about weird stuff...and I always advise a little caution. I'm shocked when these conversations get going, because I promise you I don't start them. Lol. But they find me. So, I wonder, at this point, if I should be advising caution at all. Hell, maybe no caution is needed. Maybe open exploration about a flat earth or reincarnation or who Yeshua really was...maybe that's what's needed.
Maybe being burned alive is influencing these interactions. Maybe I should be allowing my High Weirdness to come out...maybe I should even celebrate it. I have always valued my camouflage. I have lived a protected life for a few years, almost to the point of hermit-hood. It is time to re-evaluate, I think. I'm not saying I will be more open...but I will think about it.
