Wow. I've been floundering in recent days, watching hopeful connections disintegrate, figuring that despite all attempts there was just no chance of relating to much of anyone anywhere (save a couple unbelievably open-minded precious and enduring long-time friends, and a couple seemingly developing ones, or so I'm encouraged). Came close in college in the late 80's, through the Cultural Anthropology and English coursework (minor/ major respectively), but those, too, were solitary pursuits. Why did I not stop to consider this forum before. Today is my first stop here and I am soooo impressed by ALL I've found so far. People saying things that make SENSE to my rational-focused mind-heavy way of processing/ integrating information/ insights into my life. Again now, I see a ray of hope. Eager to read more....
