    Like you, I too can get perpetually lost, (and found), inside the safety of my comfortably chaotic universe of a head.

    But there's a universe out there too!

    Outside of you.

    Other people, vacant lots begging for company, sand crabs boring holes underneath your toes in the sand, cinnamon dusted cappaccinos, conversations that begin at three in the morning.


    Lovely poetry written on bathroom stalls, secrets exposed, secretly.

    Tears, hugs, blue cheese drizzled with honey.

    Dogs drooling on and outside your car, their tongues, their smiles!

    Running on concrete with one boy slinging from your arms and the other one clinging on your back, making them laugh!!!

    Sipping wine in a courtyard with a chain-smoking cancer patient.

    99 cent stores!!!

    Flirting with baristas, flirting with flirts, confiding in strangers with a knowing smirk.

    Concerts, crowds, collecting bracelets from various vendors.

    Touching people.

    Smelling people.

    Seeing them, feeling them... firsthand.

    There's a whole world out there, beckoning....

    But it all costs so much money... and besides, it's so scary when you're alone. If I already had friends that were involved in it, maybe it wouldn't be such a problem, but... well, I don't.

    In other words, the world you just described is inaccessible to me. It might as well not exist. I can't reach it. I don't have the skill or capacity to be a part of it.

    I'm glad you're enjoying being a part of it. Just make sure you maintain your connection with it. It's easier to lose than you think it is. You have a very good balance between the intellectual/cerebral world, and that other one. I'm glad you made it back into our world to share the impressions with us.

    Reading this thread, I can't help but think of this:

    I see trees of green........ red roses too
    I see them bloom..... for me and for you
    And I think to myself.... what a wonderful world.

    I see skies of blue..... clouds of white
    Bright blessed days....dark sacred nights
    And I think to myself .....what a wonderful world.

    The colors of a pretty the sky
    Are also on the faces.....of people ..going by
    I see friends shaking hands.....saying.. how do you do
    They're really saying......I love you.

    I hear babies cry...... I watch them grow
    Theyll learn much more.....than I'll never know
    And I think to myself .....what a wonderful world

    Go to sleep, iguana.

    But... I like fantasies...

    But I get what you mean, even myself I feel like I really need to get out more and like have fun moar as opposed to like chilling and dreaming things up. Although that's very fun in its own right

    Reality is so limited.

    But, really, for the sake of a proper response: I do like things outside, especially people, and I love to see a positive change to things, but what I've seen you define as "experience" is really just an extroverted way of looking at the possibilities the world can hold.

    (Not to sound like an ass, but) I'll gladly keep the universe inside of me, and I'll enjoy it a lot more- maybe occasionally share it. Then you'll see.

    I love the world outside, that is if you exclude all or most of the people in it.

    as much of an introvert as i am, i thrive on soaking in the outside world. when i am online, 90% of the time it is in public.

    plus, there's only limited fun in reading and experiencing people on the internet. reading and experiencing people in real life is much more rewarding.

    being able to use the backspace key is great cause you can edit what you say before it reaches someone's perception, but nothing beats the thrill of face to face conversation.

    that being said, i can never have enough alone time, but there has to be balance.

    It's the so-called simple things in life that get me and clench my heart in the bestest of ways!!!
    Yep, I can relate to this!!!

    And I agree. Anything nature-oriented feeds my soul. And traveling is another delightful thing too -- much of why I love traveling is the fact that I'm actually BEING and EXISTING in the moment, experiencing and seeing new things, new peoples, new cultures, new ways of life, and viewing historical artifacts along the way....
