yesterday


whitewall, originally uploaded by Justin Davis Davanzo.

it snowed a ton...like 6 inches in the morning hours, and it left a beautiful sparkling day outside. I was inside, after a great weekend of skiing in Winter Park, working with the remaining remnants of paying some taxes...boy is that fun. Some of you may be saying, wow!, that guy already paid his taxes!!...no, this was from 07...so there...I have never gotten over this tax thing..not the fact that I have to pay them, although that sucks too, but the fact that it some how qualifies me as a responsible and boring grown up...taxes...like I asked for that responsibility...I'd be happy to not grow up you know and never have that responsibility, but alas, it is there...among other things, like, rent, and groceries, and a job, and getting up in the morning because you have to, not because you want to...you know, grown up things...

Ok, this sounds like a bitch session...it is not. I am simply calling a spade a spade (see how adult that sounded?)..no really, I am just laughing at the fact that for all of us grown ups in collective conscious around the world, we sure act like a bunch of retarded monkeys...(not PC?? too bad) i mean it...these days what the F? Look around..not only do I see it next to me on the street, look at the state of our world..a bunch of kids who grew up and think they know what they're doing...and it doesn' matter where they are..Israel, Gaza, Iraq, Texas, DC, California...around the globe we all started off with imagination and wonder, and then what??

I read some postings on a website the other day regarding a news story in the daily paper here and I was simply shocked at the time and energy put into making "comments" about the issue and how quickly those comments turn into the most ridiculous waste of time, purpose and frankly, sounds less intelligent than..you guessed it...Retarded Monkeys...ooops, there I go again...

So we "grow up" and suddenly we don't care anymore and say what we want and bully others and live in fear and create horrible situations for fellow souls and take what we want and become tyrannical soarass dumbies. (pun was there...) am i annoyed today?? not really...ok a little, but more dismayed in general at our state of being in the world...and of course I am not one to escape it myself all the time...i have been known to act like a Retarded Monkey too...I mean who am i kidding? i think we may have inherited that gene from our primate brothers, although they seem to deal with it better...ok so they throw feces...ooops...so do we...

really, what is our problem? who do we think we are? Next time you are out today, just watch the retarded monkeys all around..then have a bit of patience for them because they know not what they do and then you can look at your own behavior and make the adjustment so that the monkeys who are not so...well, retarded, see you and maybe mimic your actions...thus causing a chain reaction of calm grooming and playful activity in the trees...

aright..i know this is sort of a dream state of lame musings and all, but in the grand scheme of things...don't grow up...grow down...stop trying to be so important and a know it all and a cry baby and a tattletale and start taking some child like responsibility...i'll start with a real simple one....SHARING...oh my gosh. remember that one??? yeah...or how about.....DON'T BITE....even better...NAP TIME.

alright...now, i am going to drink my, ahem, Coffee (damn, that is so grown up) and calmly be creative the rest of the morning, before i go to work and deal with more...ummm...Monkeys...


Love and Understanding

You and your wonderful blog... who was it that wrote, "All I Ever Needed to Learn I Learned in KIndergarten?"
Yeah, sharing and cookies and milk and nap time with friends...I am all for it.
As for politically correct: I can't remember the one for retarded but I know the one for 'midget' is now Height Challenged. I know because at 4'9" I am in that category and they tell me I can get a 'handicap sticker' because of my height!! Technically, I am 'growing down'...as I get older and shorter. Oh, but I digress...
Let's be the Diane Fossey's of the planet and just love all the monkeys....

First off, I must say that the photograph attached to this entry is just perfect! Stunning colors and beautiful composition, not to mention the softness....really nice.

Secondly, I happen to humbly feel the same way in regards to my perceptions about our surroundings and people's behaviors these days; sometimes including my own. None of us are perfect, but some are aware and Amen to that! If we band together maybe one day our greater, better, Consciousness will merge to a place that brings peace, harmony, and that childhood presence that if embraced, could change our World.
~Good Vibes To You!
