PONDERING THE LAST POST! TIME...TICK...TICK...TICK!


PONDERING THE LAST POST! 
When is the honeymoon over??

To review: Here is a 32 second clip:

video



NONE OF THESE REQUIRE ANSWERS IN COMMENTS: UNLESS YOU JUST WANT TO SHARE....WHICH I WOULD LOVE...BUT THEY ARE MAINLY JUST TO GET US THINKING: 

FIRST OF ALL: WOULD YOU STAY IN A SLEEPING COMPARTMENT WITH ANOTHER MARRIED WOMAN OR MAN (NOT YOUR SPOUSE?)



WHEN IN A RELATIONSHIP IS THE "HONEYMOON PHASE" OVER?

WHY "INITIALLY" DO WE TEND TO WEAR OUR "MASKS", FOR OTHERS? DO WE EVER "COMPLETELY" DROP THEM? IF NOT--WHY????


DO WE WEAR DIFFERENT "MASKS" FOR DIFFERENT OCCASIONS: PRIME EX: "CHURCH" ????

WHY IS FARTING SO FUNNY,  OR TABOO--IN SOME FAMILIES?

I ASK THESE QUESTIONS IN LIGHT OF THE PHENOMENA OF SOCIAL NETWORKING; and WITH THE RELEASE OF "SOCIAL NETWORK" ON DVD

IS IT EASIER TO SHARE OUR DEEPEST AND DARKEST SECRETS AKA, FLAWS AND HOW SCREWED UP WE REALLY ARE! LOL.:"UP FRONT",VIA A NETWORK, BEFORE WE MEET, VS. THE OLD SCHOOL "PROCESS" OF COURTING/DATING? 


IS IT- TMI? OR DOES IT RAISE OR LOWER EXPECTATIONS: MAKING IT EASIER TO MEET? DOES THE ANONYMITY OF "POSTING" ALLOW US TO SAY THINGS WE WOULDN'T USUALLY DISCLOSE?

IS IT BECAUSE OF TIME??? ARE WE TOO HURRIED TO GET TO KNOW SOMEONE IN THIS DAY AND AGE?

WHAT ARE THE CONSEQUENCES OF THOSE "LITTLE WHITE LIES ON A PROFILE OR QUESTIONNAIRE?


I'M JUST AXING !!!! THIS IS A TIMED EXERCISE!





TO PONDER, OR NOT:


FINALLY: DOES THIS PHENOMENA MAKE IT EASIER, OR HARDER TO PARENT:

OR IS IT JUST "DIFFERENT"? AND A NATURAL EVOLUTION OF SOCIETY.

I'M THINKING OF THE EXAMPLE OF THE SEXUAL REVOLUTION OF THE 60'S AND 70'S--LEADING TO THE ANYTHING GOES DISCO ERA...THROUGH THE AIDS EPIDEMIC, UNTIL NOW. WOULD THAT TIME PERIOD HAVE BEEN DIFFERENT WITH FACE BOOK AND TWITTER. (ROOFIES AND ECSTASY NOT REQUIRED PREVIOUSLY!)  TIME REFERENCE AGAIN...HMMMM......

DO YOU THINK OUR PARENTS WOULD HAVE DONE ANYTHING DIFFERENT?


IS SOCIAL NETWORKING INHERENTLY GOOD, OR BAD---OR IS IT JUST WHAT IT IS? PROGRESS, AND THE NATURAL WAY TECHNOLOGY IS LEADING US?




IN THE 



OF THIS DISCUSSION:

ARE FAMILY TRADITIONS & RELATIONSHIPS GROWING OR SUFFERING TODAY?
 LIKE PASSING DOWN GUNS IN THE FAMILY!  LOL!!! DO WE MEET EN-FACE LESS, BECAUSE OF THE EASE OF CONTACT OVER DISTANCES WITH CURRENT TECHNOLOGIES?


I'M THINKING OF THE NEW APP ADVERTISED RECENTLY:  UMI??? OR SOMETHING LIKE THAT: TV THAT LET'S YOU BASICALLY VIDEO CONFERENCE, (SKYPE) ON TV. "BRINGING YOUR FAMILY INTO YOUR LIVING ROOM"!!!
 

I ONLY ASK AS I HAVE BEEN THINKING OVER THESE & SIMILAR QUESTIONS, IN LIGHT OF OUR FAMILIES AWESOME, AND "GOOSE BUMP" REUNION THIS PAST CHRISTMAS. 

4 GENERATIONS WERE PRESENT. I NEVER WANT THIS MUCH TIME TO PASS UNTIL THE NEXT. 

 OF COURSE, HAD THAT MUCH TIME NOT HAVE PASSED: WOULD IT HAVE BEEN AS SWEET?

THE ONLY REASON I ASK IS THAT I LOVED THE HUGS, PERSONAL CONTACT, PRESENCE, EYE CONTACT, SMILES, LAUGHTER, INTERACTION, ETC.THAT BEING THERE TOGETHER IN PERSON ILLICITED!!!

PLEASE EXCUSE THE QUALITY OF THE FOLLOWING PICS; BUT LOOK AT THE EMOTIONS
3 MUSKETEERS IN HIGH SCHOOL! NOT SO HOT NOW-  BUT THIS TRIP STARTED MY RECONNECTION WITH PEOPLE FROM MY PAST !


 MY BROTHER AND SISTER CRIED..WHEN I PASSED ON DAD'S GUNS. THEN,  WE ALL CRIED TOGETHER!

 FAMILY!

 THE COUSIN "WE" DON'T TALK ABOUT!

MOONSHINE HAPPINESS! 

BUT YOU GET THE IDEA--I HAVE TO DELETE SOME PICS ON WEB ALBUMS TO GET MORE STORAGE SPACE TO POST THE ONES I WANTED TO POST! SNIF! SNIF!
