Passion Thinkers and the Wannabees (Hampton Roads-VA-NC-MD-WV)
I believe in, 'if you don't practice it and do it, then you will lose it' and be just a 3rd person of yourself than the acting first person. If you don't tease the thoughts out, you'll never get 'up to bat', let alone to 'first base'.
Having an active empathy, sympathy, resonance comes from engaging the feeling you feel from what others verbally, in this case, or non-verbally, in person or reading-between-the-lines- do in their expression 'out loud' or directly to you.
Whether in sympathy or sharp disagreement, there is still a connection-a grouping: conscious or circumstantial. I'm looking to find people who want to feel each others thoughts (short of being perv-dogs looking for carnal gropings). The energy which compels the more intense engagements is what I want to consider, investigate, and direct to our fuller understanding of ourselves and the nature of these bonds which bind us wittingly or unwittingly.
If interested, get back to me with Yahoo Groups or Google Groups in your subject line.. (I'll even put up with a Facebook or Google+ circle group for this cause)
THE AVATAR FOR THIS NOTION:
Looking forward to 'reading you' in the throes of your exhibited passionate verbalisms.
