I have started doing this whole 365 day thing on flickr.com. It is basiclly putting up one picture a day into a set and numbering them. I wanted to do this a while ago but as usual my ADD and internet nudieness has kept me well distracted. But so far I am up to day 9 of my 365. I want to put one of those things that link my photos to my flickr account but I seem to be having a techno weetodd kind of a day. So just follow this link until I can get my head out of my rectum.....Wreck'em it nearly killed him....hahah I love that line!
There are so many things I want to do in this life time that I feel I just dont have the time (or money) to do them. I want to travel so badly, my biggest ambition after high school was to buy an RV and drive to Cali. I still have that dream and I will have it someday, it just wont have wild women, booze and drugs. It will more likely be filled with prunes, bengay and drugs.....just the kind the doctor gives you and not the fun ones. But at least I will have a bathroom right behind me and I wont have to stop to pee; cruise control damn it!
I also want to write a book, I am an avid reader and love writing just never been published. I have no delutions of become the next King or Rice, I just want to die knowing something I created with a pen was made into a book.
Most of my wants in this world really do not come from something you can just buy. Yes I want a house of my own, but that really isnt on top of my list. I became a father to 3 wonderful boys, I finally found the one I will most likely die loving and I have a job that I dont hate. Cars, careers and material things do not show wealth in my book. Maybe its because I do not have the cash to afford it but owning a Porche does not make you any more of a person than someone owning a mule. Yes the guy riding the mule might smell funny and not have any shoes on but he will give you the shirt of his back if ask him.
My wife is taking this philosophy class and her teacher said that people, for the most part, justify themsleves by thier suffering and never know when they are happy. I disagree, I am happy here and now and know I am living during the times I will look back upon fondly in my old age. But then again I plan on never stop making new memories to look back on. I refuse to become stagnant, I refuse to just retire and die. Live life like you will die tomorrow but keep enough in the bank to pay bills just in case it doesnt.
Random pic I took today to post on Flickr:
The wife unit has a thing for crosses, which I think look cool but my interest lie in the art side of them not soo much the religious side.
