It seems it’s been a long while since I’ve dropped by my blog-reads to see what’s up with my fellow writers. This evokes guilt. I think it only proper manners if I want people to come by for a look-see at my scribblings I should reciprocate. This afternoon I plan to put down the there’s-work-to-be-done tasks and go make rounds and find out what’s happening.  Apologizes to the Spo-fans who have blogs. I am looking forward to you. 

I’ve been thinking a lot lately how I am contrary to my beliefs and actions. This morning at the gym I paraded around wearing my new headphones, oblivious to my surroundings, lost in my podcasts. How long have I silently disapproved of my gym mates absorbed in their phones? I recently caught myself silently lauding some right-wing hate group’s social media site being shut down, yet I get livid at the notion of government or popular censorship. Today over breakfast Someone described a couple of Trumpsters he met at work who live in their own little world cocooned by people who agree with their beliefs; last time I looked my blogs and FB friends all have the same political bent as myself. 

This worries me viz. being a hypocrite. Perhaps I am just being human with my Shadow side slipping back into the pilot seat while my Ego was busy looking elsewhere. I don’t know what bothers me more: being ‘no different than they’ or being asleep at the switch.  Oh well, either way I am more conscious of it now and more able to do something about it. 

I shall be a bit more thoughtful now before I cheer the shutdown of platforms even when I find them hateful. I will be a bit more careful before I snicker at thems with opposite beliefs.  As for the headphones, well, I will take the ‘if you can’t beat’em join’em’ approach. Lost in music and lecture was rather pleasant – and no one wants to talk to me at the gym anyway.
