Being Gemini Is Being Different

Smilin & Dancin & Prancin @ Ambrosia
That’s the sunny, cheerful me
immersed in dancin’ & prancin’,
sometimes even rooooomancin’

I didn’t realize this at the time. I mean, when I created this second blog. I just thought there were things I didn’t want in my other blog… but nooooo.

That’s just what I thought!

The thing is, it’s my evil twin at work again. I don’t believe in hocus-pocus and magic crystals, but every once in a while when the fog clears in my mind I can see that I have really got two distinct points of view.

So for lack of a better explanation I’m going to assert here that, yes, I am a real Gemini and, yes, I seem to look at things from different points of view. Some days I see things only as my cheerful, sunny side. Some days I see things through my critical, dark side.

Sometimes I see two POVs at the same time or even three POVs or even more, and that really sucks.

Of course there are more than two points of view in looking at anything. If it weren’t for Gemini’s in the world, there’ d be at least 7,000,000,000 POVs. Unfortunately I don’t know how many of those peeps are Gemini, but let’s say 1/12 (yanno, 12 astrological categories). So add in 583,333,333 extra points of view for each Gemini.

That’s not really
the other me, although
it might be to some.

Like I was saying, when I started this second blog I didn’t really recognize this “twin” factor at work. I just knew there where things I didn’t want in the main blog.

The funny thing is, the need to seperate the two genres was triggered by a remark by a snarky acquaintence who said, “You use big words.”

By that my friend meant polysyllable words. And it was true to his reality, but it was also true that I’d been drifting into the use of more and more polysyllable words, and more complex sentences too.

And that was not who I wanted to be in my fantasy life. I want to be carefree, even able to misspell things.

So here I am. Here is this blog, the other side of my fantasy. Here I feel more comfortable being critical. In my fantasy life I like to immerse myself into roles. Here, more or less, I slip into the mindset of my workaday world and approach things from a more analytical, realistic point of view.

Ok, here’s something very interesting, I am reasonably sure that not many of the readers from my other blog check in here regularly. How do I know this? Well, I meet readers of my other blog inworld and they tell me about things they liked about post I’ve written, but they rarely comment on the blog itself (yeah, I know… why?). Here in this blog, I get more comments on almost every post than I do in the other blog in a month or three even.

Go figure!
