Life During Wartime
Distractions. Sometimes they can be a good thing. They can keep you too busy to pay attention. This week we had the Bend VCB Where The Hell Are We video, having too much work to the point of feeling brain dead by the time five o'clock hit, and all off the other usual stuff that keeps the hours filled. Much better than sitting around thinking about all of real stuff that's on your plate. So yes, distractions can be good. Music, movies, exercise, television, pulling the weeds in the yard, whatever it might be it's not always a bad thing. Maybe it's like saying 'there are places worse than here' or 'it could be worse'. In other words, we do what we we have to do. If you came here for something more, than maybe you came in search of some other monkey man's healing powers:
Thousands of people are flocking to an impoverished Indian village in eastern West Bengal state to worship a man they believe possesses divine powers because he climbs up trees in seconds, gobbles up bananas and has a tail.Of course being confused as a god when you are nothing but a congenital defect is no better. So, what do you really want? Peace on Earth, cheaper gasoline or non-fat Ben & Jerry's ice cream that tastes as good as the REAL stuff? Someday it might happen, but if you keep waiting for the someday to happen by itself, it might not. Oh well, summers here, go enjoy some lemonade. Just remember, this ain't no party, this ain't no disco, this ain't no folling around.
