my life

“Are you satisfied with your life at the moment. If so, what is it that brings you the greatest satisfaction? If not, what might you do to achieve satisfaction in your life?”

i’m satisfied with my life because i’m doing what i want without want while helping some in want.

all the rest of the world at the moment, not so much.

my one crime

Q: have you ever committed a crime?

A: only one. there was a fellow, known to be brilliant, who constantly bragged that he had solved the problem of perpetual motion, holding high a little black book with the supposed solution in it. (this was before superconductivity.) he refused to share any more than that on the subject with the rest of us.

once a month, we held our poker game at his place. halfway through, when he was engaged in a tense, major hand with two others at the table, i got up to use the bathroom. while back there, i darted across the hall to his bedroom, rummaged quickly through the desk he kept in there and found the little black book. i stuffed it in my back pocket. after all, if what this fellow said was true, his discovery could have been worth millions.

i was never able to monitize my new possession and three weeks later when the poker game was held at my house, someone removed my prized 1948 California Gold Centennial commemorative postage stamp from its place in my U. S. Commemoratives album.

opening up

Q: which pre-pandemic activities are you ready to resume (or have you already resumed)? which, if any, pre-virus activities are you likely to continue to avoid?

A: with everyone sheltering at home, i had the roads and woods and small essential shops to myself. now, with everyone beginning to emerge, i must pull back.

Fandango’s Provocative Question

“What do you think was (or is) the most significant event in the history of the human race? Please explain.”

During evolution’s endless, random changes, at some point, a child was born of hominid parents with sufficient differences in its DNA from other existent members of the genus Homo, to qualify as “homo sapiens” or to produce such a child when mating with a member of a related species, such as Homo neanderthalensis.
