I am beginning to be nicer to my cat, actually caressing her some times, when she quite simply goes in my way and rolls on the floor so that I may caress her. Yup, she is quite aggressive like that. Cute.
I had some reflections on how many men actually think of women as pets. That works the other way around too I guess.
That is to say: too many relationships do not involve intellectual exchange from equal to equal. I think the ambition of too many is simply to live nicely with another person who will fulfil their emotional needs. But real exchange between humans is about much more than emotions and feelings.
This is why I had the strange thought that many people would be better off with a pet than with an human as a companion.
I am not really kidding.
Though of course reasoning on my perception of how people feel is quite a stupid thing to do. There is, and I am becoming aware of this more and more, a lot of hidden beauty in people.
People are very complex.
Quite amazingly so, and you never would guess.
