Quote of the day...er...week...umm...hey, look, a quote!!

Tibi gratias agimus quod nihil fumas.

It says "...freedom of...", not "...freedom from...".

Nolite te bastardes carburundorum!

"It's amazing to me how many people think that voting to have the government give poor people money is compassion. Helping poor and suffering people is compassion. Voting for our government to use guns to give money to help poor and suffering people is immoral self-righteous bullying laziness. People need to be fed, medicated, educated, clothed, and sheltered, and if we're compassionate we'll help them, but you get no moral credit for forcing other people to do what you think is right. There is great joy in helping people, but no joy in doing it at gunpoint." - Penn Jillette

Physics of Being


According to Physics, I am not here.

I am simply more likely to be here than not here.

You are not here.

You are simply more likely to be here than not here.

No one, nothing, is here.

Only more likely to be than not to be.

Hey, Shakespeare was on to something!

I think I'll go be more likely to be somewhere else for a bit.

If you are here (or there), or simply more likely to be here (or there), I hope wherever you are more likely to be than not to be is pleasant.

If you could manipulate the likelihood of being and placeness, who/where/what would you alter?

I would alter a goodly lot... And, hey, I'm in the process of doing just that very thing. Whaddaya know!

I like it here but there are days when I would rather be elsewhere, like now.

Hmm, I'd alter my weight successfully. I'd be back home closer to Maryland where friends and family reside. I'd be involved with a job that seemed meaningful.

But, I find that I hang in a space of suspended animation the majority of my life, thinking about stuff instead of living my life in the moment as it comes.

I think I'm supposed to finally accept the truth of, "No matter where you are, there You are." And, there is no better than here. It's just the way I refuse to see it.
