Taffy had a wonderful moment added on to yesterday's thread. Some of the rest of you leeches should add something also. Someone wrote and commented that I sound bored. I may be a little but not George Saunders bored. (If you want an explanation of that write me) I am not really bored. I am unstimulated. Every day used to be a competition. Days full of dreams and fears, attentions and slights, enemies and potential enemies. Now, I wake to a certainty that my day will be spent drifting on a calm sea and I fall to sleep having conquered nothing.

"For is it not true that the intensity of searching for something is merely a mask for our fear of actually finding it?"

James Webb wrote that in The Emperor's General. What's missing these days is the search. I'll have to consider taking some chances in the coming year. Without a fear of failure what is the joy in success. I thought of another quote. Dorothy Parker. "They sicken of the calm who knew the storm"

Feel free to write anytime. I don't mind what anyone writes about me as long as it isn't true.

    So many days go by where the human mind is not tested either because every piece of information has been handed to us on an internet silver platter or there is a cable channel dedicated to anything you though you needed to know. I long for the days when people had to use the public library to gain information on subjects that were foreign to them. Now, if you want to know the concept of the quiche, or the theory of time travel, you only have to type in www.wikipedia.com and you have an instant, yet not always accurate, take on such subjects. Does anyone enjoy the change of the seasons anymore, or is it just an inconvenience. Are we so wrapped up into global warming that we can't enjoy nature's random weather patterns? Who knows...
