Retro Post: Let's talk about sex, baby

Now that I have your attention...I'd like to know what makes us tick. What, (if any)triggers do we have? Are there generic triggers and then those specific to an individual, or are there none and we just 'are'?

TRIGGER A: Laughter: 1. The act of laughing.
2. The sound produced by laughing.
Think about who and what makes you laugh. Why that person or thing has that effect on you. What you would do if that person and or thing disappeared forever. Laughter is traditionally the best medicine...for...well anything. Then again, it can also be a nervous reaction to a situation, person, or thing. How many people laugh hysterically when they get blood drawn or get a shot administered? What is laughter curing in that situation? Not a damn thing. On the contrary it's showing your heart on your sleeve. The inappropriate instance of laughing in a serious setting, during a serious procedure.
“Laugh as much as you breathe and love as long as you live.”
TRIGGER B: Touch (today's world, smh) 1. touch is a standard Unix program used to change a file's access and modification timestamps. It is also used to create a new empty file.

First of all, this is what a Google search on 'touch' pulls. What ever happened to physical touch? Non existent in today's technical world I presume. We'll move along anyway. TOUCH. Touch is felt, touch is sensitive, touch is important...touch bonds you. Think for a moment...what it does to you. It stimulates you, hurts you, gives you chills, makes you cringe. Some cultures do not approve of it, others are excessive with it. All in all though, its a part of life. Who makes you feel what when they touch you. Think about it. A person, an animal, even a thing...what is it and how does it make you feel?

"In rivers, the water that you touch is the last of what has passed and the first of that which comes; so with present time."
-Leonardo da Vinci

1. Sound is an oscillation of pressure transmitted through a solid, liquid, or gas, composed of frequencies within the range of hearing and of a level sufficiently strong to be heard, or the sensation stimulated in organs of hearing by such vibrations

Music, voices, noises...some you love, some make your ears feel like they're bleeding. One song may make you want to cry while another makes you want to dance. Rhythms are a part of us. Rhythms are what help blind people get around. Stop for a few seconds and FEEL the sounds around you. That bus outside, the music playing near you, that car alarm going off in the distance. You can feel them all. There's rhythm in sound, rhythm in voices, rhythm in sex. Its all around us. It is us.

"Ambivalence is a wonderful tune to dance to. It has a rhythm all its own."
Erica Jong

Now you're probably thinking...what the fuck do these triggers have to do with me? ...That's the whole point. They are you. Pay attention to them. Pay attention to yourself. Feel your surroundings...laugh. feel what it does to you. Hear what it makes you might learn something.

Until next time...Live like you're dying, Laugh like no one is listening. Peace & Love.
