I am, at best, always a little behind the times.
This is not a joke.
Nor is it a problem.
There are times when everything is like walking on the bottom of a pool. It's all so muddled and all movement is sluggish and over-exaggerated with a huge amount of effort producing very little forward progress, but it's also nice and quiet down here. Sure, life is hectic at times, but that just allows me to better appreciate the moments when it all slows down and I am once again viewing the world through molasses goggles.
Been tryin to work my way out of a bad patch recently and not doing a very good job of it. It's the usual stuff: worrying about my future, work, money, happiness, money, satisfaction, once again; money, marriage, more and more money and of course sex. Ya know, the whole ball of wax wrapped up in plain brown paper.
Then about a week ago I happened onto something called Penn & Teller's Bullshit. Now I am pretty certain that this is old news to you, but don't forget that I live in Lilliput and we still milk cows by hand and churn our own butter. This show is pretty fuckin' awesome. Not only was it entertaining and enlightening it also got me to once again taking a closer look, for the umpteenth time, at some of the bullshit I have layered my life with.
Somewhere along the fine line I walk, I had forgotten about being able to tell shit from shinola. It was both refreshing and humorous to see the ways these guys debunked all kinds of Bullshit.
Now fertilizer has it's uses. When we are sowing thoughts and doing deeds there is a fair amount of manure needed to get things going, but as plants and flowers begin to grow and flourish it becomes more important to prune and trim.
I don't know how many times I written a post like this. One where I resolve to clean up my act and start acting like a mature human being. I leave all kinds of messages around to remind me of what's good and important in life, but after a while I start to stray and the darned cycle starts over again.
I like being slow. This way when life hits a brick wall there ain't too much damage. A few dings that need some body work, but the chassis is fine.
I think I'll go out for a drive today,
