Re: “Re: From The Other Side

In response to "From the Other Side" from a couple of weeks ago:

Q: Is the Sender from the Other Side of Reality or the Twilight Zone?
For the sake of seeming otherwise jaded I have to say I guess "a wink is as good as a nod to a blind horse." Many relationship blogs document boyfriends/girlfriends skipping out on one another, leaving the other to guess what happened or feel they are responsible somehow for the other person´s disappearing act. In revolving door relationships this might be common. Relationship Gurus call these people ´flybys,´ not ´beautiful people,´ unless they are referring to physical attributes. They inform readers these people are without what most people call ´conscience.´ I agree.

The Sender says, "I should of never left back to Cali..."(should uv, would uv, could uv or is hindsight 20/0). "I miss you and all the good times..." (but couldn´t hang around for the bad that might be a part of any real relationship building), "I never got to say sorry for leaving so here´s my apology hope u will read it..." (was the Sender held hostage? or was the self-imposed straight jacket of fear and insecurity a couple notches too tight? did Sender purposely lose the Receiver´s email/phone number? or did that silly little thing called "conscience get lost in the move? Or was the Sender onto their next resource yielding adventure date that would help solve their problems - either because Receiver did not have those resources or was not willing or ready to commit to the investment? Instead, Sender uses a public billboard and posts an anonymous message (switching from personal impersonal you to texting ´u´), that may never reach the intended Receiver - Cheers?). The Sender makes the big splash statement, "You were the best thing that ever happened to my life and u opened my eyes on a lot of things..." (isn´t that a wonder...but for all Receiver´s efforts opening Sender´s eyes, all that heavy lifting did not create an Avatar). Now here is the real disclaimer or ´lead in balloon,´ "Hope you are doing well and that you found someone who can do the same for you..." (because the Sender cannot be the best thing that ever happened to the Receiver´s life?, Sender settled for the next ´best/better thing,´ now safely tucked away with their new human toy and resource manager/patron with benefits and feels brave sending out a message to the last ´best thing´?) and, let´s finish on a good note, "...Lots of Love." (Lots of Luck).

A dictionary definition of Love is the emotion of strong affection and personal attachment.[1] In philosophical context, love is a virtue representing all of human kindness, compassion, and affection. In religious context, love is not just a virtue, but the basis for all being ("God is love"[2]), and the foundation for all divine law (Golden Rule).

Reads to me like...the Sender is not familiar with love and would not be comfortable living in it. Further, it seems the Sender is without an anchor and will settle for any benevolent port in a storm, but don´t ruffle their [his/her] hackles. The name for this psychodrama - "What´s Love Got to Do With It"?

I would like to create an art film of vignettes about people who have been on either side of this scenario reconnecting unexpectedly, and be the camera grip, the fly on the wall watching the awkward dramas unfold. Cheers or Jeers?
