So … as you may recall (or not, so I’ll include the link), I have a weird theory about why I have dystonia.
I’ve also come to realize that I’m a Buddhist, apparently. I’ve also come to realize that life on earth could be heaven, if we learned to share our toys, instead of keeping everything for ourselves.
Now, here’s the problem. Everybody thinks they deserve more than everyone else. Who decides what’s fair and who gets what?
That’s because we all
live in secret Guantanemo suffer from something.
Now … my husband and I were discussing the horrible tragedy in Newtown, CT. People are posting all sorts of statistics on Facebook and saying all sorts of things on the news and Twitter and so on, etc.
I can’t speak for all Americans. My opinion is my opinion alone. And when I publish here, I’m publishing to the entire Internet, not to any one individual. Got that?
In a perfect world, there would be no guns or crazy people. In a perfect world, there wouldn’t be cancer, AIDs or dystonia.
We need to work together to find solutions, instead blaming each other for the problems.
That’s what I meant when I blogged about the cosmic jokes and not taking yourself too seriously.
I’m going to post two links, and then I’m going to ask for your support for my literacy campaign.
Pretty ironic, wouldn’t you say? Ha ha ha …
Please support my Indiegogo campaign for literacy and disaster relief efforts. I have until Dec. 21 to meet my $1,000 goal, so any contributions will help. Thank you so much!
On a personal note, I will add here that I vaguely recall Scott Clevenger tweeting something to the effect that this blog reflected the many colors of the rainbow or something. I thought that was really awesome. Thank you, Scott!
So … it’s seems most appropriate to include this quote from Nik Nak’s Old Peculiar:
“We see many fine sunsets here, unique in the splendour of their colour. No doubt the surroundings in this fairyland of blue and white do much to increase their beauty.”
Roald Amundsen, 16 July 1872 – c. 18 June 1928
And Vanilla Ice! Ha!
Oh, and never go in against a Sicilian when death is on the line! Ha ha ha …
Sam McRae and all the other residents of Laurel, MD can sleep better tonight knowing that dozens of guns are now off the streets. Except, of course, for the guns that aren’t off the streets, because criminals and psychos, etc. are assholes terrible cosmic jokes. Oh, well, sorry to interrupt this awesome good news with my cynicism reality check.
Let’s pretend I never did this update, okay!
Ha ha ha …
UPDATE 3: OMFG!!!! Click here now! You’re welcome. Ha ha ha …
UPDATE 4: Okay, just one more update, and I really, really will stop doing this, okay?
