Today, talking about misfortunes, I spun jokes about how often when we lose our marbles, drop a puzzle box or CD carrier and everything falls down around you, often, you will take a second or two to watch it unfold until you realize "I have to pick things up". The people around you also take a second or two to observe, understand and react to what just happened. Sometimes, they just stand there and watch you gathering. But they do, I imagine, feel something. They think "Awe. I hate it when that happens (to me)." And go on their way.
Some people could think "Awe. Maybe this person might need my help." or "This person could sure use my help." So they move and participate and the show then becomes interactive. They bend down next to you and maybe smile and help you put things back in their place. (Sometimes they find new places and it is the good kind.)
But there are many people like me who often think that people don’t want to interact. They don’t want to be bothered by someone they don’t watch movies with. So the world ends up being a stage. We watch, feel and sometimes, maybe, flip the channel or get some chips. We walk around perceiving situations and believe (or abide) this scene cannot be altered or it is self-reliant. No wonder so many people feel alone and out of place.
I want to say that if you ever see me lose my marbles, I will appreciate any help offered.
