As you travel on thru life, whatever be your goal; keep your eye upon the doughnut, and not upon the hole.


On my drive to work some mornings there is so much chatter in my head, that i can't even hear the radio over it... This was one of those mornings. My mind races around frantically... trying to figure out life and all it's mysteries. Good luck to me. (and i don't think there are enough 4 leaf clovers in the world to cover that. ) Luckily, I like to play detective.

My first mystery actually came this morning, in the wee dark hours before dawn, while still nestled under the covers... For days now, I wake up and can't remember where I left the Guinea Pigs... and for some reason i think that I left them outside in the cold (which of course i didn't...) and i have no idea when i last fed them; and then I realize I was dreaming. What is the deal with dreams; what causes them? I mean really, like i would put the pigs outside in January.... and they would squeal in protest if i ever dared to forget to feed them.

Then, on my ride this a.m. the mental wrestling really got under way. I got to thinking about believing in things ... Some people are very religious... - some people are very green and crunchy granola - they don't buy paper towels and want to save the world with one hand tied behind their back... - while still others believe in themselves - exuding confidence right out thru their very pores. What do I feel that strongly about? I couldn't come up with anything earth shattering... I guess my "beliefs" are of a more mundane nature... The first thing that comes to mind is, if you are going to get married, then marry someone you "like"... someone who gets you, just the way you are, and accepts the real you. I believe that a thirst and a quest for knowledge is HUGE... I believe being curious about things is important... taking an interest in the past; where we all came from. Listen to the stories old people tell.... they've already been where we are now. I believe that loving an animal, and having it love you back is amazing. I also believe that some times the most wonderful friends are found in the least likely places. I believe people are in too much of a hurry these days.. and it seems there is not enough time enjoy the world around us...but i truly believe we should all try.

I wonder what my next profound train of thought will be... stay tuned. For now, I will safely stow my "soapbox" in the overhead compartment, and carry on.


  1. I am the same way, I get most of my thinking done in the car on the way to and from work. My thoughts are very jumbled a lot of the time so it is nice to be able to come out with something clear in my mind.

    I like your beliefs and I agree with them. And I am confident that you are adequately caring for your little piggies. :-)

    The piggies should remain fine... now if i could only remember which little piggy went to market...and which little piggy stayed home..

  4. I believe it is important to believe, no matter what we believe in.
