old relationship about our relationship*

*The title for this post was my iPhone’s translation of my voice speaking the words: why are relationships all about power?

why is power all about relationships?

i asked you first.

but i asked you second.

but i don’t really think relationships are all about power. i just think they’re kind of bi-polar.

i do not think they are bi-polar. i just think they’re kind of elusive.

you mean, like one minute they’re here. the next minute they’re not.

whoosh. they’re gone.

where did they go?

I have no idea.

but it doesn’t have to be a bad thing.

not unless you think it is.

why do we feel compelled to act like stereotypes of ourselves?

do you mean why do we feel compelled to act like caricatures of ourselves?

That can’t be right.

No, it’s not right at all.

I’m sorry. I  didn’t mean it the way it sounded.

You didn’t mean what?

The question.

I’m not sure I understand. Which question?

Of course, I understand if you can’t answer that right now.

Thank you. I appreciate that.

About The Lost Pedestrian

In my wanderings throughout the moments/days/years, I try in earnest to find the mystical within the mundane and the mundane within the mystical, oftentimes confusing one from the other. I have wandered and roamed through many a city, many a town, in a state of wonder and bewilderment, without necessarily going anywhere. I am easily lost, but eventually found. (I am guessing you have just found me). My sincere hope is that you will find Something in this warehouse of thought, memory and false memory, words, numbers, tangents, murmurs, echoes (lots and lots of echoes), voices, dreams, and other paraphernalia.
