Deep/Thought Observation:

 For a few weeks I have been observing the kids play ball on a team. There is one girl that seems VERY oppositional to anything anyone tells her. I was sitting there thinking about what types of therapies and/or medications would soothe her, so that she could actually have some fun, instead of spending her time in battle the whole game. Then it occurred to me... that generations before would look at the same child and think "that girl needs a good spanking, discipline, etc." In generations to come, I wonder what assertions we would make about the same child, and how parenting and medicine will evolve. I also wonder why humans have these notions about what proper behavior should be. I wonder if everyone was just allowed to grow up without our constructs, how things would turn out. Does commitment, drive, and responsible behavior HAVE to be taught? What if its okay for things to not be so orderly. What if those who weren't so "orderly" were tenacious enough to demand that we quit organizing things. Humans are interesting. We make up all these silly routines and ways things should be, and then spend our entire lives trying to conform to these silly things, or spend our lives convincing others that they should conform as well. It kind of seems like a waste of energy to me. I appreciate how far we have "evolved", but at the same time, I yearn for an existence where we do the activities that are required to SUSTAIN life. Eat, sleep, move, LOVE, and just be. Maybe in my next life I'll be a tree. Or, maybe I've been one already. *LOL*
