2016 – From a different angle

Most of you who know me are aware that I tend to look at this world in a different way.  To look at life head on can get you down many times.  In the end,  all we really want is the love of our family and friends,  the ability to wake up every morning and do something we feel has meaning,  and to cheat on our taxes and get away with it.   Is that too much to ask ?

I am here to tell you it can be done.  Get up tomorrow early and watch a sunrise.  When you have that cup of coffee, stop and truly taste it.  When you step outside on a frigid February morning, take the time to smell the cold and be glad you are on this planet.   Then get the hell inside because you forgot to put on clothes.

Always look at the world this way.  It is easy to get caught up in the stress of life and suddenly you are 95 and wonder where it all went.  At that point you might not wonder much of anything but I think you get my point.

I am going to try to help you along here.  If I can inspire you with a short story or a funny memory of when I was arrested for oystering out of season,  then let me be your guide.

All I ask is that you take what I lay down here and pass it along.  One person will do, even better if it is all the residents of Iowa.   I am going to come at life from a different angle.   Join me if you can,  and enjoy the ride.     I leave you now with this  :  Always try to be original, but if you cannot,  copy the shit out of someone else.



Give a man a fish, and you’ll feed him for a day; teach him how to fish, and he will smell like fish the rest of his life.
