Words of Wisdom
Sarah Carey writes:
Most people are good and decent, yet all we hear about is violence and crime. Most people are worth loving, yet we are trained to despise ourselves for falling short. There's too much money involved in hating ourselves and we seem to have accepted self-loathing as a fact of life. So when you read in a brochure that your fatigue and mental weariness is the result of possessing a poisoned body, it's easy to believe.

So I think we need more sex. The corny kind of sex that is about tenderness and love, the kind you can't really talk about without wanting to cringe. Maybe if we could convince each other that we are fragrant and not poisonous, then we could counteract some of the marketing that tells us the opposite
Read it all, and put down that enema bottle. Really.

Oh, uh, emphasis mine. Just because.

...and the Google ads at the bottom of the page are for predictably bogus "detoxification" schemes...

I love Google ads. Sometimes they're just so... wrong.

And sometimes they're completely random, seemingly unrelated to the page they're embedded in. Those are often the funniest ;-)

She makes a good point. I wouldn't be surprised if people also tend have their self-views reflected in the form of being highly judgmental towards others.

Do you think she *really* means sex and not the pre/post times that hang around the sex part? I don't know this person; maybe she really means sex, but to me it's the other times that bring people together. The rub-rub-spurt part is just body mechanics.

Sorry. Don't mean to rain on your parade. I'm not feeling very well.

Carry on.
