  • I sat

    I have lived near the ocean for most of my life with the exception of a 4 year stint in Michigan but even there I lived right on the big lake. I don't get to the beach much but every once in awhile we decide to spend the day. Today the wife and I went to Fort Foster. It's one of the Maine state parks along the coast near Portsmouth. A wonderful place with the old fort and plenty of shoreline unencumbered by the usual crowd of tourists with screeching babies. I put my chair out in the water so that the waves wash over my legs and just sat. It is amazing to me that only a century ago brave men would willingly set sail in a tiny wooden ship, across the vastness of the ocean with little more than a compass and trigonometry to steer the way. It makes you realize that as human beings our main purpose is life is to discover and learn. What we have done with all that knowledge has been truely amazing.

    Re: I sat

    I agree that mankind's advancments are truly amazing Look at what we have compared to just fifty years ago, laptops connected to the Internet, cell phones with camera and video capability . We have explored the seas and the stars. Still, at the risk of sounding negative we have lost some simple pleasures in all this rush of technology and exploration. Family interaction, time together, companionship seem to be lost in the trade off.

    Keep the laptops, big screen tv,cell phone and all the other trappings of our advanced society. Give me some peaceful time with my wife, some unhurried family life with my children. We have gained and we have lost make no mistake.

            I go once a year to Big Bend National Park to do just that. Sit in Nature. Nothing better to me than to sleep under the stars in the desert. No cell phones, no TV, no radio. Just peace and quiet.

              I like the title of this thread "I sat".

              "I sat" on the porch of the golf course by myself the other day with an ice cold Smithwicks in hand, and found myself staring at an old Birch tree.
              Wondering what it had witnessed in all it's years, as it proudly danced in a gentle breeze. Its life form so different then my own, but its life so much the same.

                  Thanks Master. I'm not much into Country music, but that was a pretty good song/video.

                      Most Millionaires I've met are like the older fellow at the bar. Especially self made. Not like what TV wants you to believe.

                        This post is a LIE!
                        My TV told me rich people are evil. Obviously the old man in the video is an actor because he lacks the tell tail devil horns that all rich people have.

                        OMG!!! I just had a thought, maybe the old man is so rich, he paid the Devil to make his horns go away!

                        Now, how am I going to figure out who's rich and who's not?

                        I've got it!!!!! The rich evil one's will not share their money because they are so evil. So, I if demand part of someone's money and they do not give it, then obviously they are rich and should be burned at the stake!



                        FAST FORWARD 2 WEEKS:

                        OOPS, SORRY! It turns out that I may have made a HUGE mistake.
                        I went through 4 cords of wood burning those that would not share their money with me.

                        As it turns out, the poor, the middle class, and the evil rich will not share their money. I can't find one person to share their money with me.

                        Now I'm out 4 cords of wood for the winter. What am I going to do now?
