Eye of the Potato

In Uncategorized on July 29, 2010 at 1:48 pm

7/21/10
My philosophical thinking has increased in the last couple weeks or so. I come up with quotes I feel I could have looked up, but to my own surprise I wrote them…I’m thinking it may be due to the last several months of living the way I needed to. I feel that my rollercoaster ride of relationships with humans has led up to this mixed feeling, at first misanthropic, trusting, then super social, but now I simply see that it’s a giant box of potatoes in which we are mingled. Those that you have around, randomly surrounding you, may affect the others by chance. I know that within this box of closely kept company, we all have the capability to grow eyes, root ourselves, think freshly or we can do quite the opposite and rot. Most of my life I’ve tried to keep the path of seeing all sides, taking the time to do what is needed from within myself. Know that I won’t judge your new potato eye growth, a health condition, your newly chosen path to enlightenment or on the way to a potato recipe for that matter…to include others in your plans of demise is a horrible path and I can’t be a part of it. I choose not to rot in the box, I choose to grow, live, love, respect, hope and goddamn it, I will continue to adapt and make changes for the better, at least I’m gonna try.

Real Men Wear Bugspray

In Uncategorized on July 3, 2010 at 8:33 pm

7/2
With all of the gatherings of friends and family, the 4th of July weekend is usually filled with bittersweet situations and plenty of imbibing. Please everyone be safe and don’t drive anything unless you are in a big field with no one around. This may or may not involve flood lights to seek out deer. I won’t tell, but the locals might speak about it for months and months down the road. To those whom are camping, don’t forget the bugspray. Even strong, big men can be irritated by such nuisances. And for the earth’s sake wouldya recycle your cans and glass, thanks bunches and I’ll return with a whole new blog next week. I just can’t wait to tell you about this new wine bar that I was recently taken to. See you out n about!
Keep supporting local musicians, artisans and organic farmers! ~LL~
