How different

20130818_172605_HDR_2I’ve been out walking in fields. I stopped and looked at some sheep. 99% of them and their heads down – feeding. I had no reason to think that they were planning a terrorist attack on anyone. In fact I’ve never heard of sheep being arrested for terrorism or any crime at all. They’re peace-loving animals in general. They don’t build bombs and planes and trains and factories etc. They just eat, breed if allowed to and die. Yes – I know humans do this too but we do the building of various machines, travel to the moon, send satellites to Mars etc – some pretty fancy stuff.

In fact there is no scientific evidence that many animals lower than some primates are self-aware. But the humans like to argue about this sort of thing – yuh know, how cats ‘think’ and dogs are aware of their soul etc. It’s a never-ending argument with fools and I made a resolution some time ago to avoid contact with fools.

But what has the field got to do with it. Well, the inventions of humans have ploughed and prepared that whole field. The humans can do far more stuff than other life forms, they can invent and create machines that give them far more power over the earth, the wind, and the sky etc.

Money isn’t everything…but I sure as hell love it. Don’t you?

Yeah..we know this very well don’t we, that ‘money isn’t every thing’? The phrase sickens me. Why pray tell, you must be thinking. Let me try a few substitutions for the word ‘money’ in there: ‘Air’ isn’t everything ‘Sex’ isn’t everything ‘Banana’ isn’t everything ‘Food’ isn’t everything ‘A house’ isn’t everything. Well yes, I hope ... Read more

I refuse to accept that I’m mad.

This might bring a chuckle to a few, however there is a recurrent theme in my life that I wanted to document. The situation has come up a few times in the last week – where I’m made to feel ‘I mad’. This is how it goes: Person A will say ‘X is the case’. ... Read more

Living out the future..

It’s the greatest time to be alive!! And ‘time’ is of the essence. I recall 35 years ago as high-school kids we wondered almost weekly what the world would be like in 2010 (an important ‘landmark’ of the future for me). Well, I’m here! And the ‘future’ is great!
