"How dreadful!" cried Lord Henry. "I can stand brute force, but brute reason is quite unbearable. There is something unfair about its use. It is hitting below the intellect." ~ Oscar Wilde - The picture of Dorian Gray
I didn't find a peer group until I went to University. And there I grew my hair long, wore army fatigues, went barefoot and found a girlfriend.
I freed my mind in the library, I freed my emotions with Reichian therapy, and I freed my body with dance.
Finding a peer group and belonging completed my growing up.
And now I look beyond belonging to freedom - in particular the freedom to express myself.

"I trust what you are doing though…I just see it a little differently.
I don’t see it as you stepping away from the fire. I see it as the fire directing your course.
No matter how airy or earthy or watery you become... to many of us you will always be...a super nova."
"Behind these gates of seeming warmth sits, loosely chained, a fierce attack dog. Perhaps not crazy, but dangerous"
i like feeling a belonging to lots of different groups, where you have a sense of belonging in all these very different ways. like light going through glass, and when you turn the glass it keeps changing.
i think it would be too easy and too BORING if you always had the same sense of belonging all the time.
i remember a long time ago i was in a blues record club. most of the guys in it were very outgoing very effervescent love-of-life type older guys - and at that time i was very young and angry and isolated myself from the world a lot. but we all had a love of blues so that was enough.
