Strangers.


Who/what are strangers?

I just realized reading today's different Blog posts, that "strangers" is an unfamiliar term for me.

Convinced that I am a part of all and that all is a part of me, nothing and no one is strange.

Now, if I were a member of one exclusive of another or all, some would be strangers.

I to them and they to me.

I sometimes think I may be strange or a stranger to some.

I'm not sure who or what I would consider strange.

Different? Unique?

I consider the parts of my body. Except for the pairs, one part does not look or act like another but is not strange.

Each together is truly ONE.

How do I feel about that?

Whole.

  1. I was thinking about how I'm a stranger even to myself sometimes, but I love this perspective. There are no strangers, not really, but perhaps that's because everything is strange.

  2. Rhetorical questions:

    Yeah, like normal might be insane; strange might be normal. Or is normal strange?

    This has recently happened to me. I've been tested and told that I am normal.

    Is that why for most of my life I've felt that I don't fit? Am I normal in an abnormal world?

    Would I fit better, if I were abnormal?

    Should I celebrate normalcy or mourn?

  3. I love your questions, and I think the answer depends on the moment in which they're asked.

  4. may nabasa ako before:

    there's really no stranger 'coz all of us were connected.

    as for living in a normal world:
    the world isn't normal unless you've learn to accept all the craziness in it. :D

  5. pARE..BASE SA NAGAWA KONG BLOG POST TUNGKOL DYAN DATI...strangers ay yung uri ng kaibigan kung saan kakamustahan mo lang at katanguan mo pag nasalubong mo sa daan... sila yung nakasama mo minsan sa isang lugar at nakakwentuhan. pero walang information sa isa't-isa...

  8. we decide who are the strangers, we define strangers - it is relative, it is like love, we don't really know whether it's really there or not.
    It is our human instinct to know the unknown, while in fact there's none.

  9. the way i see it
    we are all strangers
    mahirap kilalanin ang kapwa
    laging may pretensions

    btw, kamusta kayo?
    baha ba?

    hope you and your loved ones are safe and dry

  11. Strangers get bonded due to a significant event sometimes. Tulad ngayon, dahil kay Ondoy, maraming magkakapit-bahay na dating di nag-uusap ang nagdadamayan.
