    gut instincts and intuition are excellent tools to move through llife with, as long as you have a very clear understanding of yourself and how emotions work.

    Before you diagnose yourself with depression or low self-esteem, first make sure that you are not, in fact, just surrounding yourself with a-holes - William Gibson. (-9.75 / -9.05)

      and I'm glad you said something. I tried to compose a comment in response to some of this over-the-top yelling and scolding about the perils of "inexpert" speculation (good grief but we spend a lot of time shaking our finger at one another on this blog) but decided to abandon the effort, not wanting to tangle w/ folks too much right now. But you've said it well and perfectly non-combatively and I for one appreciate it, doesnot. To speculate is neither unethical nor unintellectual, nor does it demonstrate any sort of wildeyed departure from reality. On the contrary, having a well-developed sense of wonder and imagination are both altogether desirable human capacities.

      Anyway, I'll save the soap box for another day; here's hoping folks can just let you be you and not grill you about it too fiercely.

      God bless our tinfoil hearts.

        but to knock intuition and instinct is just counter-productive.  

        intuition is way too undervalued, imo.
