Beware of snakes and evil genies
Snakes bite if provoked.
A few miles from Colchester is Mersea Island, a stronghold of the increasingly endangered only poisonous snake in Britain called the Adder. I sometimes run through the trails of Mersea Island, and it is a matter of staying alert in case I tread on one of these snakes. Each year a few people get rushed to hospital from Mersea Island as the Adder dislikes being trodden on. If I encounter such a snake, I back off and take an alternative route. The Adder bites as last resort, they only attack if provoked.
I visit dozens of blogs on WordPress each day, for I like to read what others are saying, especially in the matter of philosophy. If I can make sense of what is written I will often leave a comment. Occasionally, but rarely, I encounter a blog of what is best described as a “psycho blog”. One blog today was by a personality who enjoys inflicting unwanted pain on others in order to help them develop. That blog, like my Adder encounters, is one where I back off and leave without comment.
This is the case in life, to tread carefully with who you associate with, as there are many evil genies out there, who can be a pain in the bum if you rub their lamps.
