Picture this, it’s barely seven in the morning, my coffee is over on my desk, and Buffy our Calico is asleep on my belly. So I ask myself, what should I do? Should I move Buffer and enjoy my coffee? Ask Lisa to bring the coffee to me? Or just sit here for a few moments and just be? Life has become such a rush. But I doesn’t take a genius to figure that one out. Poor old people are glued to their TV’s being scared to death by assholes trying to sell them Depends and extra health insurance.
Libs are scared shitless by open carry proponents who need a gun on their hip like Marshall Dillon. I for one would just love to have a week go by without a doctor’s visit or more blood being drawn. So I lay here while my coffee gets cold without a TV playing or a gun in the house. We are so much like cattle. Just open the gate and we meander our way through life doing what we’ve been told to do. Never looking up to see that our asses are heading straight to the slaughterhouse.
Are there really that many sides to a coin? Right now is the beginning of another month. There are bills that need to be paid. Obligations that need to be met and more doctor appointments in the coming weeks. But I lay here staring at Buff, she don’t give a shit about any upcoming appointments. She’s just enjoying the moment. There are lessons we can learn here. There are different planes of reality we can go to. I choose this moment to just breathe, me and the cat. The coffee can wait. The bills can wait. The endless obligations. But right now I want to just be.
