Small Landscape Day 85

Claudia McGill says: There is that terrifying moment when you’ve knocked on the door, it’s answered by the party’s host, who’s telling you to come on in! and you look through the door and see a whole big crowd of people having a great time, making a lot of noise, music playing, some of them people you know, some you don’t, and you just want to go home. At least I do.

    Thank you. I am sorry you didn’t win. I was astounded at the response. I will do it again, it was fun to watch, if not kind of surreal. If you want a copy, I think I still owe you from the Landscape event. Let me know, I will send!

    I am right there with you. I am very much an introvert. Socialising even with people I know and like fatigues me mentally and emotionally; even the prospect of meeting a bunch of new people drains me. I am also socially awkward and do not remotely do small talk. I am notorious for peculiar conversation starters. Luckily, having four kids and no one to babysit means I cannot accompany my husband to any work social functions. Shame.

    As to the art work, I love those blue orbs separated by that vibrant yellow.

    I feel the same way. And I would love to talk to someone with a peculiar conversation starter as I am tired of the usual ones and for a long time, too. But I’d really rather just stay home, thank you. I think this is why the blog world works so well. It’s on my time and at my pace.

    I feel the same way. Sensory overload, as they say, with all the chatter and so on, even if I know the people, as you say. I can make small talk but I no longer feel like bothering, so I usually sit along the wall and watch everyone. I’m perfectly happy doing this but I can see that others find it odd or off-putting. Perfect opportunity to gather material for all kinds of writing and art for later, though, these kinds of events are…

    Me either. Which is why I sit and stare at people. I go home from social events with a headache most of the time just from talking. It takes a lot of energy to talk.

    These days, I try to avoid even getting to the part where I’m at the party, having realized finally that I don’t like them and I don’t have to go to them and I can stay home. What a relief.
