Take things seriously but not too seriously 
Wear things lightly but not too lightly

saying how things are

Saying how things are is not complaining.
 I cannot breathe sometimes. 
I’m all for optimism but denial? 
There is something very dysfunctional about pretending to smile,
Pretending your life is hunky dory

Yes pragmatic optimism

On a National Express coach to Devon I tried darning a darn in a jumper I’d already done that had come undone. Too much vibration. I was clumsy. DON’T DARN ON BUSES!

 Empathy- the feeling of connection that humans have, initially touch, proximity, sharing the same air, space, house and furniture, is slowly being usurped by digital channels that trick us, actually mediate while apparently replicating and leading to disconnection. Technology- my phone, my computer help me to survive my loneliness, but maybe by making it bearable, prolongs it so it becomes my way of being. We are great survivors, gods of making do, and that  may be our strength or our undoing! Drama!
