Whataya going to do?

Hey, how are you? I hope you’re sitting back in your comfy chair, with a nice hot large mug of your favorite hot beverage, preferably decaffeinated since its so close to bedtime. Think of the wonderful things in your life, think of the nice goings-ons, the various subject matter you laugh on and on about with your best buds. You’re enjoying life, you’re walking through the lilly fields, smelling the musky sent of a campfire, clean cut grass, even that wet cardboard sets you at ease. Not only do you feel great- you’re in great health, heck, you’re even off the drugs. Nope, no sir, you don’t need drugs to feel a catharsis or comfy in your body anymore, like you used to think you did, now you eat healthy, you drink healthy and you exercise to boot. Way to go fella, goodonya.
Wow. Hooray, and congrats. You’re making headway, this is for sure, its observable, and demonstrable with your every act. On top, like a cherry, are your acts of kindness, the subtlest of which is that glowing smile you offer to any ol’ scamper-by. They don’t realize it, all of them, right there in the moment, but you can be assured they appreciate it- no matter who they are. They file it away deep down in that shirt pocket of there’s, then later, when not a soul is looking, they take a peak and pat it with affection.  Haha, yessir, walkin’ with a healthy pace- not rushed, not too leisurely as if you’re time isn’t worth nothin’ neither. You’re involved, engaged, things on your plate- not too much though, not so much more than can fit in that jaw of yours, just enough, cut up, bite sized. Bite down, swallow with ease, taste those spices. Life’s full of ’em. You’ve noticed *wink* I know you have. The possibilities man. Popculture, yuck- amirite? There’s more to life generated by your own thoughts derived from your own experiences way more worthy of entertaining your mind, for hours. Today, tomorrow, the next and so on. Mull it over, turn it around- you’ll find that unexplored wooded path, that good friend a-smilin’ in the corner, firm earnest hand extended for you to shake. And shake you will. Those bull’s horns? consider them grabbed. You grab life, you take if full into your hand the material surface of which expands to fill the entire surface of that inviting palm of yours. Feel the poress grainy texture, the little minute feelers flicking in motion like an ocean waving to the sky. Ahh, the wide open sky- there it is, there it always is, never letting you down, without a fail- for sure. The sureties of life, that’s what you have to look forward, also the tragedy, but that’s to be expected, right friend? Those tragedies, oh geeze, those pitfalls, oh yeah, we know they’re inevitable, but you know what? so are the joys, friend. so are the smiles and the warmth of friends. Those strangers? they’re not all scoundrels. Sure you’ve got to protect yourself against the worst of them, and that means recognizing a bad, rotten egg when you see it. What are the tall tell signs? avail yourself pard’ner, of these traits and STEER CLEAR! Part of a good life is avoiding the bad, taking those measures, weight and implementing a getaway. Go on then. Get gone. It’s not worth that precious time of life you’ve got flowing through those ever coursing veins of yours. By the way, speaking of coursing life-filled veins, had you noticed today that you are indeed alive? LOLOLO- I know ya had- but where in that conscious of mind did you appreciate the lilies of the field? Some times you gotta bend down low and let those extending flowing flowers lap the upper bicep, then take a head long tumble into them. Role over and let the lord-willing sun lap that belly of yours. Feelz good don’t it? I knew it would.
When you’re done there get down to the bread of life, its never going to be a smooth glide into smiles, its hard work- and you’ll get to love it. Love the hurt! If ya know what I mean. A good days work is pain- the good kind mind you. There’s more gain than loss, that’s how you know. Ayup.
Role up dem sleaves and do your thang.
