On Freedom

I took this Thursday off and it was refreshing. Its amazing how relaxed & free one feels when not at work dealing with the stresses of other individuals. I always feel exceptionally better when the prospects of my boss not being around is a key factor. I've come to the conclusion that we humans just need to be free, not in cubicles, or behind desks or being stressed to the point of over eating, over drugging or over medicating. Everyother person is in some stage of mental trepidation. Ahhhhh freedom, not having to report to anyone or anything!
And speaking of freedom, I was privy to be in the exact opposite thereof in the Bronx yesterday. We went to video a wedding and it was in what I would consider the most noisy, congested and miserable section known as Soundview! The community center was rimmed with drug sentinels, loud music and chicken boned eating and flinging pregnant gals. Just think, my bridal subject had to enter into her special day to this!!! Are they living in an alternate Universe or am I living in one. The bride, however managed to make her entrance - albeit, not a bit flustered by the dismal surroundings, then ensued the ceremony, subsequent blaring loud party music for the wedding and rowdy children underfoot. It was an interesting event, not to say the least. I couldn't live in Soundview though, clutter everywhere, too many people, noise, graffiti, rumbling of the train and the list of negatives far outweighed the non-existent positives. Everything that epitomizes all the stereotypes of what people in the Midwest think the city is like!
