Working together


Next time you find yourself outside on a cool, clear, moonless evening, take a moment to look up.

Consider the fact that you can only see about 2,000 stars.

Consider that is only about 3% of the known universe.

Consider also that there is an estimated 97% of the universe we cannot see from earth.

Now consider the relative insignificance of the orbiting sphere that we inhabit.

Our “world”. Our “earth”. Our “home”.

Lastly, consider that all living beings on our earth are trying to enjoy life to the fullest.

Given all of that, it would seem logical that everyone on earth would be willing to get past their preconceived notions and beliefs, their prejudices, their hates and dislikes, and to work to enjoy our limited time here . . . together.

Well, at least you would “think” that.

        Dear friend, it took me a little digging, but I get it now. I cannot lie, the gentleman in question is my husband. He belonged to a fishing club for years and wrote humorous anecdotes for the clubs newsletter about that happend on tournament weekends that kept me in stitches. He also has great stories about childhood memories, growing up in a small town. I encouraged him to write some pieces and put them out there. So the truth is out, you are a clever detective.

        so true! thanks for sharing dear poet
        (we're all 99.9% dna identical
        yet we wage wars on minuscule differences
        like our skin colour, belief systems, or sexual preferences
        we're racing to occupy Mars...
        there seems to be a gap
        in our 'thinking'
        a notion of logic that's obscenely, missing...
