Home invasion

It can be disconcerting, to say the least, when you find someone has entered your home uninvited. It may not be a burglar or another bent on damaging or taking your belongings, it might be someone you know quite well, or think you do. If you have not specifically invited a person to enter your home at any time you should be able to expect that you will remain undisturbed until you choose to invite others to join you. Most people would or do feel uncomfortable if they are discovered while asleep, or showering, or in other intimate positions, and were confronted with someone they were not expecting making themselves at home. It is a violation of a person’s personal living space and right to privacy to treat another person’s space as your own; if you do so on a regular basis and not during an emergency you should take a look at your standards closely. If you have been invaded on a regular basis you should take a look at the messages you are sending out and re-evaluate your availability to others and your lack of desire for a private place of your own. We all have need of a private space we can call our own, a place where we can be who we want to be. We all deserve to have a place for communion with only ourselves. Do you believe we have the right to protect our own homes from disrespect?

I've been struck many times by the thoughts that run through my head when I'm outdoors and contemplating nothing in particular. The thoughts can be profound or silly, sad or joyful, relevant or not. But they're always there. And with just a bit of concentration they can lead to the most astonishing places and on the most convoluted trails. Exploring those vagaries and jigs and jogs is fun. I'm attempting to find more of these trails to see if they lead anywhere or nowhere, because even nowhere is somewhere. The bits and pieces of the outdoors help to make the indoors survivable. Photos help bring the outdoors in and remind me of many of the thoughts I had while still outside, a very valuable tool they are, too.

  1. good topic and I do believe that we have the right to protect our self and our home and of course our families.

  2. So true. We all need our private space no matter how humble. Thank you again for liking one of my posts. We must respect our mother. She’s the only one we’ve got.
