Want the thought

Why this
Just to get some
Damned thing

A reminder
Of hasty grabbing
Straws for deadline
Panic purchase
Giving nothing
Appearance an illusion
No heart
Almost thought
Push button purchase
Done

Heartless gadget
See through the thing

The gift
Dizzy with the searching
Why why why why

    So much to get caught up in, especially at this time of year. I have been thinking that if we can walk away from it at this time of year, it might be easier to keep perspective the rest of the year. But sometimes, I just think out loud. Hi Bear! ๐Ÿ™‚

    • ps …. I am the rotten ingrate, here . When trying to discover the reasoning behind a particular gift, I learned there was none. Oops.

        Funny how that works (or doesn’t). It’s kind of like some people buy gifts with intention or at least something resembling thought, and sometimes, a gift just happens because “it’s what we do.” I happen to be a meaning person, and so I sometimes forget that not everyone else operates the same way. Sometimes I wonder if for some people, they just follow the “perceived rules” of gift giving instead of exploring the spirit of gift-giving. I guess not everyone thinks about gifts as an expression of celebration of the relationship. Geez, Bear, I’m rambling AGAIN! speaking of ooops!

        • You have perceptive rambling. ๐Ÿ™‚ Perhaps some of these folk ARE “celebrating the relationship” as meaningfully as they are able. ๐Ÿ™‚ Mr. Potato Nose is watching me. He says I sound like “Meow”. {For you readers unfamiliar with “meow”: “Meow” means “catty”. A “catty” remark is a comment that is insulting …. if you understand it.}

            Mr. Potato Nose may not realize that truth isn’t always “catty.” ๐Ÿ˜‰ After all, some people might just be following societal expectations without questioning them. That’s hardly celebrating anything. Then again, Mr. Potato Nose probably thinks me a bit catty at times. ๐Ÿ˜‰

          • The entirely obligatory social status gifting as was done in Japan isn’t sort of gifting that is done with office lotteries which is different from families at Christmas which is different from charity which is different from personal relationship gifting and that is only slightly different from true gifting which honors the gifter as evidenced by appropriateness and thought and quality of the gifts in relation to the means and abilities of the giver so that thought and effort always have more value than trivia. The best gifter places no burden of gratitude or obligation onto the receiver, but brings joy to everyone, and debt nor stress to anyone, including themselves. And that is what I like. ๐Ÿ™‚
