a special moment of reflection
running a nice bath, watching a good movie, staying up late, enjoying your own company, immersed in the creature comforts of comfortable surroundings...how can people be depressed and unhappy? how can anybody not enjoy life? and then one remembers tragedy and loss. ah, of course, painful memories. but nothing is overcomeable if you have strong minerals, not even the present state of this upside-down, fukked-up world. never let the despair of yesterday destroy the promise of today. we can’t control the hellish reality of other people but we can control our reactions to them. there are those out there who delight in the downfall of their fellow man; haters with power, sects with wicked intent, devils posing as allies, bad spirits, negative attitudes, recyclers of violence, nightmare makers, dream takers; shrug them all off like old news while maintaining a positive attitude. don’t forget to be silly. remember to have a laugh. make that checkout person smile. consider each encounter a short friendship. people have a right to be inspired. let’s have more singing and dancing. we are over 7billion in number, and all pretty much the same, so treat each day like your last and rejoice in the sheer pettiness of your so-called problems. every day above ground is a good day! upright and sniffing the air!
