friends in deep reflection about why prehistoric homes [castles] needed high thick walls and rows of cannons … do you let friends in or keep them at arms length?

I am sure they wanted some people out. They were constantly battling each other for domination. It was always a matter of life or death. I think friends didn’t exist then. I believe they called them allies, who could turn against them at any time.

thanks Renx .. do you think much has changed?

A long time ago, my parents said they could leave their houses unlocked overnight and nothing would happen. Now , houses are like fortressess, with cameras and some warning device. Not much has changed and , will never change as long as there are people with bad intentions exist.

There’s a saying – good fences make good neighbors. 😉 To answer your question, friends are let in. Good friends.

My surname is Cannon 🙂 something to do with ancient family ties with operating one of those.

The response to your question gives good insight into the type of life a person grew up living. Those who were nurtured with kindness and love are more likely to be less defensive and worried about experiencing emotional pain. Those who created their own “walls” to survive childhood are more likely to remain guarded as a natural preventative response to pain. Learning to understand one’s feelings and permitting this awareness to lower one’s defenses provides great opportunities for the future.

Excellent question – depends on the friend. Some you can trust with your deepest secrets, others not so much. One only learns the hard way which is which.
June 4, 2017 at 5:27 pm
so true thanks Tina 🙂

Friends are let in. I see “strangers” and think of each person as a potential friend. They just aren’t my friend YET. So I let some of them in, too. 🙂
Wow, that photo…and those times depicted in the photo…are fascinating to think about.
I wonder if we are back “there” now with so many people who have alarm systems, cameras, etc., hoping to protect their homes and possessions. ???

An amazing picture and the analogy is telling about walls we erect as humans.
thanks Vishal 🙂

Interesting thoughts to ponder, Kate. Those days… and today we still have our walls and borders in a physical sense but as for your question… I’ll be open to anyone who wants to reach out 🙋🏻💐
June 7, 2017 at 5:46 pm
yes I knew that Di and I’m sure your posts are benefiting many 🙂
June 7, 2017 at 6:34 pm
Thank you Kate. That’s very kind of you 💐
