Thinking.
Why does thinking tend to take a back seat
most of the time. I mean,
WAY
back there. BASICS in the back seat please.
Like you're sittin' on the couch watchin' MTV and you throw your brain under the
reclinable chair.
Why do we subject ourselves to mindless videos created by high school flunkies?
What kind of life is that?
I mean, this is when your brain just says,
"Woh! What is going on. USE ME!!!"
So by then you have turned off the mindless television set
and taken your butt off of the couch. You walk to the backyard
and lay down
in the freshly trimmed grass.
Now this is more like it.
You take a good look on the inside
to refelect on the life that has been
given to you.
You wonder if you are the way you are because
a) you have had things happen to you.
or you are the way you are because of
b) your reactions to life as it happens.
You wonder why that big fluffy cloud
looks like the mailman and you wonder who painted the sky
that lovely shade of blue. By now you have forgotten about
MTV and mindless videos and you have
gotton back to the basics
and put them in the
DRIVERS SEAT.

Some of life's most prescious moments happen when you sit back and
THINK.
Gettin' your intellectual mojo flowin'.
Now thats what I call a good time.

Cool Read! Thanks for the mojo jump start and for clearing up the question about the bump in the reliner. Honestly, a good read.

I like this. If more people would turn off the TV (whether it's MTV or not) and went outside to lay in the grass staring at clouds, the world would be perfect!
