Thinking out of the box, literally

"How much easier it is to be critical than to be correct,”

Benjamin Disraeli

 

Yesterday I went outside of the property and I lost my mind. Helyn was recording on video and they published the video on the internet. While a large majority of viewers understood my reaction, the ones that James Rooney refers to as the waspish ghosts of teleological thinking, strongly felt that I should have been punished. I was at the edge of panic and the main reason why I did not lose my mind was that he stayed with me all along. He was not thinking right or wrong and I am glad that he was not; I was in a state of mind where I could not have distinguished right from wrong.
