Inside of a hive bees communicate by dancing, unfortunately the little skellie cannot dance. For now the skellie is incognito, but sooner or later the bees will find out.


This image is about my experience throughout life. I often find myself amongst groups of people who have view points and believe systems that I don’t share. It wouldn’t be a big deal if I didn’t feel like some of them constantly wanted to fight over whose morals/political views were better. After some time I’ve realized that it’s easier to not voice my opinions because I often get stung.

So in the end I’m often left watching the dance from the sidelines.

I’m not pegging down one particular group because I’ve seen Conservatives, Liberals, Religious, Atheists, hard-headed, and even ‘open-minded ‘people end friendships and start fights over one opposing view point….

But you know, it’s interesting to hear how bold/obscene some people can be when no one opposes them.

Beautiful. And so true! Keep up the good work. And there will be a dance for you too 2

:-) Kat Powell replies: "Awe! I just hope its not line dancing.
Thank you 2"

We all get our dances eventually. It just takes a while sometimes. On a more technical level, I like the picture. Is the little skeleton guy covered in beeswax?

:-) Kat Powell replies: "Actually that is what a fetus looks like in the womb when it’s developing skin and organs.

But it’s much cuter to say it’s beeswax, I like that much better! 1"

This is really interesting and beautiful. Strangely, I find the fetus to be very cute.

Are you supposed to be the purple skellie?
Do you mean that you disagree with the boldness of the people around you who are eager to voice their opinions?

:-) Kat Powell replies: "Thank you, yes, and not exactly.

It’s more to do with how others (from personal experience) have treated me when i had voiced an opinion opposing their own. Instead of us finding a middle ground or just acknowledging different opinions, they became somewhat aggressive, as if i was personally attacking them.

I love when people are passionate/bold about their opinions, and i’m open to discourse, but it’s a bit disheartening when the other wont try to accept your different ideas.

Oh, and you made the little skelie blush when you called it "cute" 2"

Nice pic, and I totally agree with what your saying because it happens to me too. If I voice an opinion that others don’t agree with they let me know that my opinion is wrong and only theirs are right, They don;t even bother to want to hear a different opinion. I think this pic perfectly represents what you are saying.
