Dear Everybody IN THE WHOLE WORLD:

Calm down. It's going to be okay. Really. You know: not much has changed for humanity in the last two hundred thousand years - if you look at life in a certain way. We're born. We die. See? We been doing that for years. In between birth and death we have these tribulations, these conflicts. Some people live for the conflicts - and that's just messed up. Ya might not realize that the conflict is dumb. You might not realize that you're trapped in a conflict. Just walk away from it. Walk to nice shady place and have a seat. Bring your attention to your breathing. Meditate. After everybody is calm, then come back out and get engaged in life. Do your thing! "What's my thing Bobby?" you might ask...well...you have to figure that out...but don't fret. Just give it lots of thought. Try different things, trial and error, until you find YOUR THING. Maybe YOUR THING is to go around trying Different Things, here and there, now and then - but you never really settle for Any One Thing. I think this is MY THING. Here's something worth mentioning: Try to pick A Thing that doesn't encroach on Somebody Else's Thing. And usually there are very very clear indicators when this happens. It's a Common Sense Thing. The Common Sense Thing - everybody has to do that one.

Best regards,

Bobby

Sunday

I’m Seeking The Positive Here:

Scenery - If you got one tree, you got scenery. Look at your town as though you are seeing it for the first time. What is it that brings tourists to your town? Me, I’m lucky in this regard. Florida is a beautiful state. Virginia was pretty, DC lovely - but Florida, wow.

The Infinity of Human Knowledge - Every subject, I just want to plunge into it and read a hundred books and become a scholar in it. There is so much wisdom available, already set in print. Humans are expanding their knowledge constantly. AND YOU CAN CONTRIBUTE TO IT! Your narrative is as important as everybody else’s.

Love - If you got an internet connection, you are reading this. If you got an internet connection, you got love! You got interaction. You got people interested in you. You got interest in other peope. You got love! What is love? I don’t know. I mean: I do know - but I can’t put it into words...because it ain’t supposed to work like that. Love is internet ready.

It’s great to be alive! Every day a new delight will delight you. Civilization keeps on civilizing. I’m glad to be alive. Now. Here. And I can shape my life, make it a work of art.
