Deep Thoughts

Off the beaten path…

I came across this really inspiring blog today and thought I would share it with you: San Juan Sufficiency – a guy and his wife going against the flow of society living on a houseboat in the San Juans in WA.  Really thought provoking stuff about the status quo and health insurance and poverty and living differently from most of society and quality of life.

Poetry: “Wild Geese” by Mary Oliver

I was reminded today of one of my favorite poems and thought I would share it with you all as inspiration:

“You do not have to be good.
You do not have to walk on your knees
for a hundred miles through the desert, repenting.
You only have to let the soft animal of your body
love what it loves.
Tell me about despair, yours, and I will tell you mine.
Meanwhile the world goes on.
Meanwhile the sun and the clear pebbles of the rain
are moving across the landscapes,
over the prairies and the deep trees,
the mountains and the rivers.
Meanwhile the wild geese, high in the clean blue air,
are heading home again.
Whoever you are, no matter how lonely,
the world offers itself to your imagination,
call to you like the wild geese, harsh and exciting –
over and over announcing your place
in the family of things.”

by Mary Oliver in “Dream Work”

“As the light changed from red to green to yellow and back to red again, I sat there thinking about life.  Was it nothing more than a bunch of honking and yelling?  Sometimes it seemed that way.”

“There are many stages to a man’s life.  In the first stage, he is young and eager, like a beaver.  In the second stage, he wants to build things, like dams, and maybe chew down some trees.  In the third stage, he feels trapped, and then “skinned.”  I’m not sure what the fourth stage is.”

“If there was a big gardening convention, and you got up and gave a speech in favor of fast-motion gardening, I bet you would get booed right off the stage.  They’re just not ready.”

Deep Thoughts Saturday

“It’s easy to sit there and say you’d like to have more money.  And I guess that’s what I like about it.  It’s easy.  Just sitting there, rocking back and forth, wanting that money.”

Deep Thoughts Saturday

I thought I’d start a tradition of posting a Deep Thought by Jack Handey every Saturday.  here’s the first one:

If you’re pretty happy, but you have a little Chihuahua that’s always biting you on the ankles, still that’s pretty good isn’t it?  I’m going to go ahead and keep you in the “happy” category.
