I've been MIA these last couple of days.
I've been playing with my girl, going to the beach, staying up late, sleeping in and not doing a darn thing. I am, as you know, in between opportunities. And while it is important to feel useful and participate in life in the "pursuit of happiness," it sure has been fun loafing about.
The way I see it, pretty soon I can just live entirely off the government..welfare (single mom totally qualifies), food stamps, health insurance, trade in my car. I can then go to the beach everyday without so much as a worry as to my next meal or getting a job. Good times.
This also happens to be the Day After the King's birthday, oops, my apology, it was the President's big day of celebrating his birth in Hawaii. How fabulous is that. And for the record, he's now officially a year older than me; for awhile we've been tootling around the same age which I found awfully strange to say the least, but also seriously alarmed! The juxtaposition illumintates all sorts of ideas and visions and questions.
How did he do it; how did he come to such a pinnacle in life and society at such a very young age, if I do say so myself. More importantly, what is in it for America?
There is a reason for this -- there must be -- my faith tells me so. I'm just not sure what it is right now. But I do know this allows for us to pause, no stop, and look at where we are in America, where we want to go, and how we are to get there from here.
I'm going to leave it at that today. The beach is calling me and I seem to be sporting a little hangover after yesterday's celebration so a little more rest and sea water should do me a world of good.
Make it a good day, G
