I know who he is. I guess just Indiana is on another planet.
I am speaking of the life of a man who knows that the world is not given by his fathers, but borrowed from his children; who has undertaken to cherish it and do it no damage, not because he is duty-bound, but because he loves the world and loves his children… - Wendell Berry, 1971
I can see by your coat my friend you're from the other side. Just one thing I got to know. Who won?
I had all forgotten Mr Allen.
One of my favourites back in the 70's.
suddenly, everyone was running
and so focused on their position in the race,,
that they failed to notice their position in LIFE.
as the race progressed to ever swifter speed,,,
LIFE faded farther and farther behind them,,,
after a very long run, and still no end in sight,,
One stopped to rest and catch his breath,,
after a moment or two,,
a few more joined the one,,,
in those moments,,, one of them happen to notice,,
that LIFE was not around them any longer,,
the one elbowed another and brought it to his attention.
as each turned about to look for LIFE
one decided to go back and find LIFE
after a few more moments
the other few decided to join in the search with the one,,,
The Race for LIFE,,, was not as well manned as the race of MAN was,,
however few, it was held precious by those involved,,, and they persisted,,
Sometime, at some point, perhaps the race for LIFE will become accomplished,,
and all the people can re-join LIFE,, and learn to LIVE,,,,, it again
Dave got me thinking
my thinking got to thinking
and that thinking ,,, i just had the urge to write and post above
what i was thinking,, about the Human race,,,
and how our headlong Race in life,,, has led us away from,,
living Life as Life could be Lived
how much better off we might be if we did live life,,,
engage in a Race with it.
