We need balance and that my friend is where we have lost the way….without balance, we are just mentally lopsided blobs…

My thinking time:

But dammit, where is the coffee shop?

I think that so many people have become detached from their roots and our roots are all centered upon the land, our earth. I think that roads like this scare so many people and heaven forbid to cross a bridge that has no hand rails. I think that  if everyone would walk a rural path daily and breath the fresh air daily and watch nature daily, life would be a better place. I think that someone who sits in their office and is bored simply spends their time thinking of bad things to do…

I walked this road above and saw:

Mister Foxy Fox, Mrs. Eagle, Mr. Hawk, Playful Chickadee, Mouthy Sparrow, Minuscule Mouse, Fat Wood Rat, Jr. Jumping Fish, Mr. Bumble Bee, and lots more, like Majestic Tree, Baby Fields, Blooming Thistles and more…

They all said Hi and they all went about their business doing what they do everyday to enjoy life…

They did not sit around and plan others demise. They did not act bored. They did not play with a cellphone. They simply, lived life according to nature. The American Indians had thoughts about nature. One I like is below…

Treat the earth well: it was not given to you by your parents, it was loaned to you by your children. We do not inherit the Earth from our Ancestors, we borrow it from our Children. – Ancient American Indian Proverb

I would add to the above quote and I am sure that they just assumed that we would always do this: How we raise our children is how the earth will be treated…

I imagine a world that people do not sit constantly at a desk bored, a world that does not consume our youth with video games and cellphones, a world that evil/bad/idle thoughts are overridden by doing things constructive, instead of nonconstructive….embracing nature instead of excessive unneeded material items manufactured from the earth’s products…

I realize that everything I need to shelter, feed and live a good life can be found in nature and if you embrace nature, you will never be bored and lonely…

Yet I also realize that here I sit behind a keyboard at 2:38 a.m., yet I will spend a few hours at that and then I will go outside and work/play/create…

We need balance and that my friend is where we have lost the way….without balance, we are just mentally lopsided blobs…

Oh and the coffee shop is in my kitchen…
