No more what if

How much time one can waste in life constantly obsessed  with "what if". I know I've wasted many years with such questions.
One must not worry about "what if", rather take life as it comes, live for the moment and go with opportunities as they present themselves in the here and now. If the world you live in doesn't empower you to do this, then you must create a world that does, find a framework to live within. One that affirms who you are. We are who we are.

What does it matter what men call the light?

"What does it matter what men call the light? It is the same light, and men must live by it or die. I only know that God is the source of all the light which has lit the world, and that his purpose runs through the world and past each one of us like a great river, and we cannot check or turn it, but can only drink from it while living, and commit our bodies to it when we die"

Bog Shock

I was lost for words yesterday as I was walking home over the bridge near me yesterday. I saw a naked mans bottom hung over the canoe with him washing his butt. He then hoped back into the canoe, pulling up his speedo's and paddled off. As I walked further I noticed in the water about 12! small logs floating. Yuck! ... Can you believe it. Weeing in the water is one thing but taking a crap is I think just pushing the boundaries a little too far for my comfort. Especially when the night before I saw kids jumping in that water off the bridge and swimming.
