A Thought for Friday

So many things went down this week… We had the Local Elections on Wednesday, some people are happy about the results and some are very disappointed. The Stormers finally won a game this morning and loads of people are happy about that. The ugliest hat in history (PRINCESS BEATRICE’S HAT) fetches a price of £20,000 on EBAY – personally I think this is atrocious.

And in other news, we could or could not have the rapture taking place at some point (the time is speculated to be 6:00 pm) tomorrow, and folks have been getting pretty serious about the whole thing – God save us.

Amidst all the chaos I found myself thinking about a piece of writing from one of my favourite authors Tom Robbins, and I quote “Our lives are not as limited as we think they are, the world is a wonderfully weird place, consensual reality is significantly flawed; no institution can be trusted, but love does work, all things are possible and we all could be happy and fulfilled if we only had the guts to be truly free and the wisdom to shrink our egos and quit taking ourselves so damn seriously.”

I leave you with this though, on this beautiful Friday afternoon just like any other.

I'm a morning person, love tea, love my dogs, fresh air and lots of space. I don't get angry very easily, but I stay angry for a long time when I do. I take everything personally, as I am a person. I like to think and listen to other people, I need to know about things. I love and wine, my friends, and food. The weirdness of me. I love shoes. Reading is good, smoking is not, but I enjoy both. I wish I was a warm summer day with thunderstorms and soft rain that makes the air cling to your skin. I like kissing, ice cream, and chilli'S. I love to play pretend, dance and sing to 80's music, and imagine I can play a sport and own a yaght. the end-ish. just a little.

  1. I think it was the end of the world as we know it when someone paid £20,000 for that hat! It looked like something off the top of a teletubbie’s head.

  2. That’s one of the best quotes I’ve ever read, especially the part about trust no institution. I’m American, and the greatest challenge we face is the corrupt institutions that buy out our politicians, erode our constitution, pillage the taxpayers, destroy the environment, and wage wars in the name of the people. The truth of the matter is that our government has become more corrupt than old Europe, yet all of this could be changed if we only had the “guts to be free and wisdom to shrink our egos”. Love does work, which is why our instinct detects it so easily. You don’t have to like everyone in your family, but you inherently love them. The sooner we treat each other like family, knowing that we don’t have to like everyone we encounter, and the sooner we decide to respect each other the way we respect even our most detestable family members, the sooner we will spiritually evolve. Keep notifying on twitter when you blog. Very inspiring to read.
