On being a spoke in the third wheel – A clarification

This was not meant to be an exercise

in self pity, nor even a window into any piteous state I may be in. But I’ve received some concerned feedback so I’d best clarify what my thinking was. And because I’m lazy, it is a Saturday night after all; I’m copy-pasting my elucidation to Kimya:

shafinaaz

ur spoke in the wheel post is sad
u ok?
Me

you’re the second person to ask me that
i must clarify
it’s meant to be a metaphor for growing up, independance, standing on two feet without a supporting wheel….
shafinaaz

aah!
eureka

Me

shafinaaz

means balance has been perfcected
Me

but is it really, sometimes dont you feel like you could do with that extra wheel, to be carefree…
shafinaaz

but extra wheels can slow u down
Me

very very true
i din’t think about that
shafinaaz

like a crutch

mmhm
shafinaaz

at some pt, kno to let it go

And from Lady Kim, words from the Mevlana to put it all in perspective: “You were born with wings, why prefer to crawl through life?”

That’s all for tonight folks, tune in next time for more off-the-cuff entertainment from the life and wiles of the distant planet that is Khadija.

Okay, that was vain but au revoir mes amis.
