Let me start by welcoming you to my site, I’m really glad you stopped by. Next, I am issuing a disclaimer: this site is meant to be exactly what it says,–my personal soapbox upon which I can rant, rave, praise, or otherwise speak my mind. This doesn’t necessarily mean that I feel I’m right or wrong, (sometimes I might!), however, overall, I believe that much of life exists in areas that deserve more exploration and understanding. Please feel free to speak your own mind and leave comments.
Visit me on my about.me page.
If you know me, and you see me, get in my face and say “hi”, otherwise, I might not notice because I’m always busy thinking. I wish, many times, that I had an “off” switch for my brain.
I don’t suffer liars or fools easily. Truth, honesty and justice are qualities that mean the most to me. Lie to me, (especially for your own gain at the expense of others), and you’ve most likely lost my respect. I’m not saying that’s fair or right,–however, it is my truth.
I can’t write “about me” without stating how important freedom and independence are to the very essence of my being; like oxygen to my soul. My zen is motorcycle riding. It is while riding that all worries, troubles and cobwebs are blown away, paradoxically leaving my brain in perfect harmony with “in-the-moment”, yet, transcendent thoughts. Problems are mysteriously solved and ideas; born. Life becomes brilliantly focused. If only I could “bottle” this state of perfection for the rainy days…..
But, when the rainy days come, well, humor and whimsy go a long way.
I like nonsense, it wakes up the brain cells. Fantasy is a necessary ingredient in living, it’s a way of looking at life through the wrong end of a telescope. Which is what I do, and that enables you to laugh at life’s realities. ~ Dr. Seuss
The day that I grow old, (mentally), would be a sad day indeed. Happiness, (IMHO), is always having a sense of wonder and curiosity. And, yes, I still love re-reading Dr. Seuss books. I learn something new each time I do. Perhaps it’s not really learning something new, but the dawning of a new comprehension. Either way is good.
I am absolutely captivated by this song. Can’t say why; just know the first time I heard it, (Delta Airlines commercial), it took me back to carefree days. Naive. Sunny days. Finding that perfect rock for my collection. Riding my bicycle. Putting nickels on the train tracks just before the wheels flattened them. Sneaking sugar cubes to the horses. Oh, to possess the innocence and lightness of youth again!
