Maybe it’s true…

resistentialism

The theory that certain inanimate objects hate humans.

I think there is some truth in this theory.
I believe alarm clocks can be hateful.
And I think some cars hate their owners. Maybe some rightly so.
I had a chair that hated me. Every time I sat in it I got a backache.
I put it out on the street. It got rained on then went to the dump.
old chairI sometimes have nightmares that it will reincarnate into
another piece of furniture and get back at me.
Come to think of it I did fall out of my new chair, broke my arm and tore my rotator cuff.
See there is truth in this theory.
Either that or I knocked a screw loose when I hit my head on the dresser not long ago.
I could go on, but I am going to apologize to all my furniture now so
there won’t be any future misunderstandings.

No guarantees in life…

file000205524313

There are only a couple of things about life
we know for sure, we are born and we will die.
In between anything can happen.
We will go to school and then to work…or not.
We will marry…or not.  We will have children…or not.
We will be healthy…or not.  We will be happy…or not.
Most likely we will experience some form
of all of the above.

Some of what happened in the past stays with us.
Sometimes that is good sometimes not.
Some of what happens today will end today
and some will affect the future.

We pretty much just get what we get and what we do with it is up to us.

Our life can be like a towering tree majestic in its beauty
or a messy tangled affair that never gets off the ground.
Life for most of us will be like a towering tree
with a tangle of weeds growing around it.

Life is a crazy ride, and nothing is guaranteed.”
