It’s July 31, 2018 around 10 pm. I lie outstretched on top of the bed sheets my mind wondering back and forth between future plans that I am excited about, and past events. The windows are open as always and after some rain earlier in the day it is a desirable warm and sticky evening. I lie on my bed looking out the window at the half moon lit world. My four-legged friend Rebel stretched out at my side. A chorus of frogs and crickets sing about their delight of summer time. The gently continuous breeze from a little fan near the head of the bed feels good sweeping over my skin. I can remember many similar evenings throughout the past. My mind drifting back and forth between something I am looking forward to and memories from the past. I tell myself, forget about the past and stop looking to the future, live in the present, be here right now. I listen to the chorus of frogs and crickets and the breeze past my ears and I tell myself, live here and now, live for this moment. Listen to the chorus of frogs and crickets and the breeze past my ears and over my body, live for the moment. Listen to the chorus of frogs and crickets and the breeze past my ears and over my body, live for the moment.

i have had a couple of close friends short term, but otherwise i have spent my whole life alone. My parents distanced themselves from me but not my siblings. Loneliness happens when we are not acceptable for who we are. Not being accepted is a thick heavy shroud that is impossible to lift without being accepted. i have come close to giving up a few times but somehow i fight on for the hope that someday i will meet others, like me, and they will accept me like i accept them. littlegreenthing.com has been many things, but now it is another attempt to connect with others that feel the same weight that i do.
