Do you know that there are unwritten public bathroom rules? Of course you do. I live in the Midwest United States and I’m guessing that the unwritten public bathroom rules vary from place to place, but some things are common in most public bathrooms.
I was in Budapest Hungary alone suffering through an unplanned layover awaiting my next flight. I was tired, lonely and uncomfortable. I hadn’t slept in more than twenty four hours and all the strange people speaking strange languages had gotten to me.
I had already walked everywhere I could through the airport. I had already “shopped” the one small Duty-Free shop that was open.

Last week I was on a school campus. I was meeting a friend. While waiting I looked for a seat in the commons area. I saw many students laughing, talking, playfully interacting, and studying.
I scanned the area. There are two seating arrangements. There were a few tables for four, but most of the seats were pairs of adjoined chairs with pivoting desktops. The pairs faced other pairs of adjoined chairs with a common table between the four seats. Thus providing a clear social setting.
As a stranger I had a dilemma, face my fear of rejection or find a seat elsewhere.

Beyond Whatever. I have had that title in my mind for so long I cannot even tell you when it first appeared, but it’s perfect.
Beyond “Whatever” that sense that “whatever” you or I want it’s okay.
Whatever we say is okay.
Whatever we think is okay.
Whatever we do is okay.
Beyond whatever means it’s not. I wish it was but it’s not. I would like it to be that you and I and everyone else could do whatever they wanted and it would be okay; but, it’s not.
