Figuratively speaking, the world is burning and I’m just over here thinking about beach yoga. I’ve been a news and politics junkie for many years and I’m just too tired to pick a side. Have you ever tried to run in sand? I’m really pondering the best way to run on the beach with my dogs without aggravating scar tissue in my foot from The Great Pitbull Attack of 2015. Don’t worry about the Dow; Worry about my Plott Hound being terrified of the ocean.
I have no control over central bankers or their evil machinations but I can absolutely choose how to spend my days. I’m jumping off this ride because it’s expensive and it sucks. I’m taking my dogs to a small town where I will hardly have to drive. We’ll all be in better shape and I mean that in every sense of the word.
Lately, The Virtue of Selfishness by Ayn Rand has been on my mind. I’ve never really gotten into the philosophy of Objectivism but I certainly can identify with so many of Rand’s fictional characters. I’ve never lived my life the way people thought I should. Why start now when I can catch mangoes falling from the sky?
