A conversation with Alice...
Reader:
"Hello Alice, I have a question for you?"
Alice:
"Ok"
Reader:
"Why do you want to do this, I mean, to let people know so much about you?"
Alice:
"Just thought it might be helpful."
Reader:
"Alice, are you famous, like some Alices I've heard of?"
Alice:
"No, I'm not, any of them! Why do you ask?"
Reader:
"I just had to be sure, you know, so I would know whom I am talking with. You must understand that?"
Alice:
"Yes, you must be careful, especially these days... Someone could mistake me for some other person, real or imaginary, it seems."
Reader:
"So, if you are not one of THOSE Alices, where do you originate?"
Alice:
"Right here silly! What a strange thing for YOU to ask..."
Reader:
"Sorry, I just wanted to make you say it so the point would be crystal clear."
Alice:
"Ok, but they can't be that dumb, can they?"
Reader:
"It's not the dumb ones that I want to impress with that thought."
Alice:
"Ok, understood, now can we get on with it???"
Reader:
"I would like nothing better!"

Alice:
"It sure isn't going to be very warm today, I hate that, welll, I guess hate is to strong, I mean, I actually don't hate the cold... What I meant to say, is, I hate that the cold is stopping me from enjoying my daily walk."
Reader:
"You enjoy a good walk?"
Alice:
"DON'T MOST PEOPLE??!! Sorry, the thought of missing the exercise and enjoying the outdoors is making me cross."
Reader:
"Yes, no need to apologize, I should have seen the emotion in your first statement."
Alice:
"Thank you, most people are so superficial but you really do care, don't you..."
Reader:
"I feel it important to show that right up front, this would not be a good talk if you thought I was uncaring. Do you want to talk about something special today?"
Alice:
"Yes, I would, at least it seems important..."
Reader:
"What is it?"
Alice:
"About the world today. Is it all going to Hell?"
Reader:
"You just dive right in, don't you… Why such a subject?"
Alice:
"Well, it's on everyone's mind but nobody wants to admit it. Sure, they may speak about it in passing, but only in passing and then quickly change the subject provided that someone else doesn't beat them to it. If they were to stay on that subject, soon would come the point where they would have to actually deal with it. Most people can not really deal with something deep and or scary. Why do you think that the so called reality TV is so popular?"
Reader:
"I guess, for the same reason. They can see someone else dealing with tough situations on the TV screen and then live through those TV characters. That way they don't have to deal with anything themselves."
Alice:
"Well good, you do follow what I am saying. However, it does seem that you too may not want to take a stab at my question, is that the case?"
Reader:
"I have my reservations about getting off onto touchy subjects, but, I do agree with most of what you say on this issue. So yes, let's talk some of this through... You first, Alice...
Alice:
"Thought so, well, here goes... Back to my first question, do you think the world, in general, is going, so to speak, to Hell?"
Reader:
"Oh, that one again, welll, I think that most people have always thought that to be true. Maybe we have to narrow the subject a little?

# 3
Alice:
"Well, let me clarify my question a bit. Sure, all history and any open conversation with someone will reveal that people have always thought that way, but… I mean to say that there has never been a time in history when so many things could go so wrong, so fast, and even all at once. I am, of course, talking on a global scale not a regional one.
Reader:
"Now I am starting to get it. I guess in that case, I do feel that the world is taking a nosedive. That's not to say that I am all doom and gloom about things. I can't be, because just when you think nothing will get better, often it does, at least in some small ways."
Alice:
"Pardon me for saying this, but, you are still looking at it as a limited region surrounding you. Remember, we are talking globally and across the board."
Reader:
"Hummm, globally, give me a minute to form an answer… No, give me a month…… Hummm, humm, hum... "
Alice:
"Should I go to lunch???"
Reader:
"Well, you want an intelligent answer… Ok, try this… The globe is too big, I have no answer…"
Alice:
"Oh yes, now that IS intelligent… Come on, I won't let you sneak out of this topic. Now, where is my intelligent answer?"
Reader:
Silence… "Alright, here goes… You obviously are a bit more informed than I about global matters, so what do you think I should base my answer on?" I mean, in order to give a real answer to a big question such as yours, I need a wide range of knowledge. I do not feel that I have that."
Alice:
"Finally, you just gave me the answer I was hoping for… We can change the subject now."
Reader:
Wide eyed… "HUH??? The answer, wha, what do you mean, I just gave you the answer???"

Alice:
"Plain and simple, you did… I was looking for an intelligent answer and that's what you delivered."
Reader:
Silence, again… "Alice?"
Alice:
"Yes?"
Reader:
"As smart as you are, you sure are weird…"
Alice:
"Thank you, I'm not often so honored."
Reader:
"You're, welcome, I guess?"

"HEY YOU! YES, YOU! The one that's reading this… Come here! Now, tell me why "Reader" delivered the answer I was looking for? Send your answer to me, Alice at Newz Blast. My e-mail is
alicesrestaura@yahoo.com and I will be delighted to here from you.
Alice Srestaura
"Oops, now you know my name, or do you?"

We will leave my conversation with "Reader" for a bit while you send me those answers. Here is another person I'll refer to as "Reader2". Reader2 has some interesting problems. Come on; let's talk to her.

Alice:
"So, when did you first notice that these problems were getting out of hand?"
Reader2:
"Well, I really never have felt at all in control. My life has been the classic roller coaster ride for as far back as I can remember."
Alice:
"What specifically are the things in your life that you consider a roller coaster ride? I mean, is it depression and or something else?
Reader2:
"Wow, what a simple little question for a lifetime of misery…"
Alice:
"Sorry, I'm just trying to get us to a focal point so we're not drifting around with no results."
Reader2:
"Yeah, I understand, but YOU must realize what a tender and sore spot you hit when you call me on this subject."
Alice:
"This IS going to be tough, isn't it?"

#5
Reader2:
"Tough?? Now you're describing how I feel most of the time.…. I have no idea why, it has just always been that way for me. Seems like everything I do comes hard and at a large cost. Why do you think that is?"
Alice:
"Everything you just said has a very subjective ring to it. Kind of like you have built this up on your own. Don't get me wrong, I am not trying to belittle you, your life, or your condition. Remember, we are trying for some real answers here and that sometimes takes guts. Also, what you describe is more of a common human experience than you obviously think it to be. Do you have many friends and do you like to socialize?

#6
Reader2:
What I should really be saying is that I am in need of help to get through what I call, this life of mine. I am at the crossroads again, and feel very lost." Plus, to answer your last two questions, no, I do not have many friends and very little social life... Once, way back, I did have many friends and I was the life of every party, so to speak...
Alice:
"First things first, we need to go back to where we were on the last conversation so that we can work through the issues that are causing havoc with the spirit, and essence of your life. It has been my experience that we must start at the very beginning as you would if you were writing a novel. So, shall we begin?"
Reader2:
"I.......... do not really no where to begin.......... things are just so confusing. As far back as I can remember, it has always been such a battle! I had a loving, nurturing childhood, with great and unending support from my family. Not that other people do not have problems in their daily lives... It is as I stated before, I feel like my life is like a roller coaster ride. On the top and then I fall into this deep pit."
Alice:
" The first thing I feel we should talk about is where you, as an intelligent person, lost faith in your abilities to met this thing we call life. Even with the little amount of time that we have spent together and in our conversation, I have discerned that you are a very special individual, with so much to offer everyone. But, I would like to interject here, that you also have so much to offer yourself."
Reader2:
I.... I..... do not know where I lost the person which you see in me, but....
Alice:
"Well, that's not really a bad thing and it looks as though we should let you mull over what I have relayed to you and get more into it later."
"So Reader2 will get a short break, and so will you..."

Reader:
"Alice, Are you ready to continue with our discussion????"
Alice:
"I have been so looking forward to speaking with you again....."
Reader:
"Then we surely should begin.... What topic should we explore this time????"
Alice:
"Well, here goes.... Is the statement made by so many on the subject of men versus women true? Men are from Mars and Women are from Venus?"
Reader:
"Here we go again... Are you so sure that you really want to get into THIS one???? Could get, VERY, interesting?!!!"
Alice:
"I thoroughly agree with you, and this WILL be very enlightening for all! Do you agree or disagree with the premise that men and women approach things in a completely different manner?"
Reader:
"It has been my observation, that men seem to come their answers through a more logical approach than women...."
Alice:
"Yes, that seems to be how I see it also.... I, as a woman, feel that we come to the same conclusion, but, we get to it in a completely different process. Do you, as a guy, agree, or disagree?"

"Now, NBMC readers, I am going to let you work with that for awhile and check back with you to see what you have come up with...."

Some Time Later....
#8
Reader2:
"Alice, you are sure tough on me... I have spent most of my free time, searching my inner self, for the answers, which I have been skirting for years. But I now realize that it is WAY past the time when I should have resolved these things which make my life a strange roller coaster ride. I feel though, that through these enlightening and thought provoking conversations, we SHALL come to the answers, which I now so heartily seek... Are you really willing to go through the whole process with me? No matter how long it may take???
Alice:
"Don't be silly!!! I would not have offered to get into these talks, if I were not willing to help!" Short Pause... "Sorry, I apologize for being short fused today. It's really been a rough day."
Reader2:
"Do I see YOU admitting to me that you let things get to you the way the rest of us seem to fall into that trap!? Well in that case, I shall tell you some of the things that came forth in my thought processes of the last few days... First off, I feel I was deceived into believing that I am not a worthwhile individual. I do, with my whole being, know that all I have had to deal with over the years is due to a self-esteem issue. It is such a positively good feeling that someone who has yet, hardly spoken to me, sees reflections of me that are seldom shown to anyone, not even to myself..."
Alice:
"That is quiet a long insight, but did you really resolve the issue, or are you still skirting it? In order to get to the real cause of that self-esteem issue, I feel, that you should throw out some of the cobwebs and see if we can dig out the true basis behind all that has brought you to that basic conclusion." So, I am going to give you some time to work through the cobwebs and sweep aside the dust..."
