Foundations (please understand this is an off writing day)


Ever had a dream where you are walking around in circles looking for a way out.  You go to the right, to the left, to the front and back, you look up and down and all around.  Yet somehow each turn you make brings you back to the place you are trying to leave.  Today as I talked with my husband I believe this is how I felt.  I wanted so much for him to empathize with me about something.  I tried to tell him in adult terms baby terms. teenage terms, book terms, ignorant terms, movie terms, smart terms,   I tried using analogies and allegories and still nothing.  I tried linking it to his childhood.  I tried talking about his college experiences and still he did not understand how I felt.  At this point I  decided to give up he was fundamentally unable to understand how I felt.  So what does this have to do with foundations.  I don’t know but I do know that if you are fundamentally unable to empathize with me then I guess our foundations are not as strong as I thought
