planting carrots

I have not blogged for quite a while.  Life has been a series of ups and downs all a normal part of life.  I have had a difficult time recently and I am rapidly reaching a point in my life where I have to reconsider my core values, beliefs and things I have taken as a given for many years.  I belief that we must help the less fortunate and the less able.  I believe in  clear division between right and wrong.  Of late I have started to question what are my beliefs and what are others.  Am I being brainwashed, have I been brain washed and if so by who?

I feel like a veil has been lifted and I am seeing the world through fresh eyes.  I have an older friend who has been helping me find my way in the world.  He constantly advises me to look at the whole picture and not just a little piece.  Today I wonder if  I am just too scared to see the entire picture sometimes and perhaps I looked through the rose tinted glasses because the alternative is too scarey.

well dear readers today I took off the glasses and I did find a few trolls and a few other surprises but its nice to live in the real world and maybe reality will bite a little but it sure beats the slap in the face it gives me every now and again when I realise I have yet again been taken for a fool.

I had a debate about the use of carrots and sticks.  so i am off to plant carrot seeds for myself to reap and sharpen my pointy sticks in case the carrots dont work.
