My Demountable No. 2 came to me… slow and difficult to operate. Then one day I managed to fit its frame on the correct way. It became quick and fun…
Just one of those days…
If you think through a thought… it will take you to unexpected places. Rising tide… flood. Equality… top loses… bottom gains…
After 12 years I have 25 Volumes of “The Complete Peanuts” and thought I was done. There is a 26th due in November (RATS!).
While typing on my 1937 Underwood (Noiseless) it kept causing problems… and I was reminded of a strip when Lucy buys a balloon but is unable to blow it up. She ties a string to it anyway and drags it along behind her.
I continue to type… and post it anyway (one of the lesson learned from Peanuts)!
On PBS they have been showing profiles of Presidents. In 1960 Kennedy talked about getting “America’s edge back”… which sounded a lot like “making America Great Again”. In 1964 Johnson questioned the temperament of Goldwater… (which sounded oddly familiar).
Presidents lied and misled and concealed…. the only difference between then and now is that back then “hope” was part of the campaign as well. “The only thing to fear is fear itself…” “Some see things and ask why? I see the things and ask why not”… I misquote.
However I had a sense that in past times there was a belief in the power of good and no matter what presented itself today… tomorrow was another day.
They call it the “internet”… but sometimes I feel like a fish caught in a net. I go to find out information and feel that more information about me is being captured with each search and article I see and read. And after review my life would be PG.
There is so much about the world I do not understand. Lots of things people do and say is beyond my ability to accept… but with time perhaps understanding and acceptance will come. We just need to give others more time… not take away a life-time… there is no chance of change in that.
Three decades after he lost his voice… lost his natural grace… needed help to feed himself… he still was able to project grace and strength. An entire life lived determines greatness… not a short time in a ring!
Woke up this morning laughing… even if the dream was not that funny. So I decided to just fill the day in a mellow mood… setting a tone as they say.
Power went out… got out my manual typewriter and just typed some thoughts!
