We as intelligent biengs have our future to be, that is we get to choose, beyond ambition, beyond greed, beyond tradition, how do you want to live, what's important to you, to your being, a short time on this earth has been given, so do you run with the trends, or blaze your own trail?
Tread lightly, use no one, love everything and die, now or in 100 years but be true to you.
im never sure if I adapted to this life or if it was always within me. Patiently sitting through the exelent British education and the suit and tie jobs, all the while waiting for an excuse to drop it all, to shed the pretence like a dry skin, to wriggle free of all the obligation and run wild!
All the sunsets I missed, that glorious blue sky stretching above an ocean, any ocean, the world trembling with excitement beneath my feet, just waiting for me to turn and run, run anywhere, with nothing to help me but my resourcefulness and my own two hands.
Sometimes we find things we never knew we were missing, and rid ourselves of things we thought we wanted, such is the great adventure of life!
I find myself wondering if we preside over a civilisation in ascendancy any more, for now the losses outweigh the gains, we plunder our resources by borrowing from the future, there will be no oil, there will be no plastic our way of life will change completely and our grandchildren will ask why did you use it all, what gave you the right to consume all the things of the world and bequeath us nothing, all the while quadrupleing the population so ther would be even less? You people they will say as they spit on us, you people who killed a world, the cursed generation, the damned ones, the children who burned it all. Such is our time, such is our curse, such is our legacy.
