I try to sympathize with every human being. It’s not too hard to remind myself everyone is living their own reality, with their own experiences that made them who they are. Everyone has their choice in their responses to events (Which might not be completely accurate; I have gotten flak for being soft-deterministic from hard determinist before) but in the end, it is up to them to be willing to reflect on their views. Anything I could say won’t make much difference and as I recently commented on Elliot Nichols post, anything I would say is going to have the opposite effect of what I intended.
The highlight poem I made is humorous to me, because the bottom half is the mirror image of the top half. Mirror image here used as same movements, only left is right, right is left, effectively rendering it a opposite.
Everyone uses Medium the way they enjoy most. I’ve chosen to treat everything on here as art. And my engagement with this art is for selfish reasons. I do not need to agree with the artist, as long as their work gives me things to think about, reflect on and in some way enhance my being, it has done it’s job. Lots of art, literature included, is sickening. That does not render it without value.
