Plant your intellectual seeds
carefully nurture them as they sprout..let go of any old ideas

that have already served purpose
to be open to current lessons..all
the while maintaining calm in the
face of any danger presently at
hand by applying good ole common
sense administering a backup plan

 (c) Nature of Mortality

Sage advice! The mind has to leap from the memory-go-round.

That's amazing. Was working on my short story, Last Man Standing, yesterday. He was walking on a trail down what used to be an interstate highway in heavy brush when he walked upon a pride of lions. Fortunately, my hero had his 356 Magnum on his hip and scared them off. This fellow in the tent, does not appear to have that option.

I spent a lifetime trying to get folks to let go of old ideas; one tough job but like you say when the intellectual seeds begin to sprout.....
I may be wrong but I figure it is easier to remain calm whilst admiring a lion from a safe distance through a scope sight.

Good ole common sense, something that I sorely wish the politicians in Washington and at state level had an abundance of. Not to be I fear.

I liked the truism of this piece, Vivian. Simple. Direct. Uh, if I may say, you were using good ole common sense.
