This blog chronicles the importance of and efforts to return to Mother Earth in spirit and in body. This journey is not one of primitivism or reenactment of an earlier age. It's hope is to inspire me to find the middle ground between necessities of the 21st Century, the need to find a simpler way of life, and our ethical responsibility to protect the land and preserve our natural resources.

Take meds and get over it.

I met a friend for brunch today at Lola's. They have eggs and lobster hash that one wouldn't find in any cabin. The Mexican flavors and the seafood make for an terrific meal. Also, they make guacamole tableside—perhaps the best ever made.

As we sat drinking Bloody Marys and enjoying the atmosphere, he turned to me (I've shared this blog with him) and said, "Dude, you're just dreaming of things that will never happen. Why don't you come back to earth on that one. There's probably some meds that will take your mind off of it." Yeah, I thought. Like the ones you've been smoking.

Twice in the last couple of weeks others have tried to get me to abandon the dream. I don't walk around with suggestions like "You should stop working out because you'll never get rid of that ass." Or, "Why do you keep calling her? She's never going to leave her husband."

"Be careful what you wish for, for we are such stuff which dreams are made on." This is a collaborative quote for you, cabinboy, by shakespeare and my psychic.

Well, maybe you are dreaming of things that will never happen. Maybe you will have to settle for staying in your present location and keeping a regular job, but taking the time to plant a nice garden. Maybe you will never have enough money to make your dream a reality, or maybe by the time you do have enough money you'll be to old to enjoy it. But it is your dream, and as far as I can see, it is not hurting anyone else. You are making plans so that if and when you do have the money, you don't go out and waste it on something that doesn't work because you didn't put enough thought into it.

Your friends, of course, are entitled to their opinions, and if you aren't ready to hear them, don't talk to those particular friends about your plans.

As for the guy that will never get rid of his fat ass, as long as he's safely trying to get rid of it, more power to him.

As for the guy trying to get someone to leave her husband, may he burn in hell forever. Go on and tell him what an idiot he is. Doesn't anyone ever stick up for the unsuspecting spouse? Divorce is a serious matter that does not require interference from third parties. If someone has a legitimate reason to leave their spouse, phone calls from love sick idiots still don't help anybody. And why do these idiots want people who would leave their spouses anyway?

So you should just go back to telling us some more of your plans. We are the people who are actually interested.

Everyone needs a dream. Otherwise how can one stand the everyday struggle for a paycheck. Dream on!

It is your dream, and you are entitled to it. As far as I can tell, you aren't hurting anyone with it. Maybe it will never happen. Maybe by the time it does happen, you'll be too old to enjoy it. But you are doing research and making plans so that if and when you have the money you don't waste it on something that just won't work out for you. That's what people are supposed to do, right? Plan ahead, right? Maybe after doing the research, you'll decide this isn't really what you want after all, or maybe you'll find something that is even better. Nothing like this is ever going to happen without a lot of planning and work, and if that is what you spend a lot of your time doing, it would naturally come up in conversation.

But your friends are entitled to their opinions, and if you aren't prepared to deal with this sort of thing, don't talk to those particular friends about it.

As for the guy WITH the big ass, as long as he's trying to safely lose weight, more power to him. If he's doing something unsafe, try to talk some sense into him.

As for the guy BEING a big ass, may he burn in hell forever. He's being an idiot, and someone should tell him so. It's none of his business of the woman leaves her husband. Divorce is a serious matter that the couple needs to work out for themselves without interference from other people. If she has a legitimate reason to leave her husband, phone calls from lovesick idiots still don't help. Why do these idiots what people who would leave their spouses anyway? And doesn't anyone stick up for the unsuspecting spouses anymore?

Never mind about all these other people who just don't get it. Don't waste your time talking to them. Tell us more of your plans. We are the ones who are actually interested in them.
