More Mental Musings....
2/21/2006 3:37:45 AM
Questions to be answered....hopefully....

Again I am plagued by sleeplessness and my mind wanders out where no mind should go. I have two friends, both are dear to my heart but tonight, they both angered me.

They got into a fight concerning some loaned blankets, none of which are special, none of which cannot be replaced, but one person broke a friendship with the other of over thirty years!! Why are you Caucasians so determined to hang onto materialistic things? What is so important that you are willing to give up a friend?

I honestly do not understand your nature! I know if I loan anything or give someone something I made that they like, I do not expect to get it back. I only loan things I know I can replace easily. What is so important about possessions?

I live in a world where I trust people until they show me they are untrustworthy. When I give someone something to use, I do so with love and I truly believe if they keep it, they needed it worse then I do. I have had things stolen and that is a hopeless feeling. However, I didnít mourn the loss because I wasnít hurt, nor was my home destroyed. I did, however lose my keyboard, television and my stereo. All of those things were just objects and no I never did get them back nor did the police catch them.

I guess my philosophy is ya canít take it with ya! Iíve visited many graveyards and have seen many funerals, but I have yet to see a funeral where the hearse was followed by a moving truck. I hope when I finally die, my family will honor my wishes by taking the few things I think theyíd like and the rest are to be given to friends and other family members to remember me. Anything not taken will go to the homeless then. I want a party, not a funeral. I want to see people having fun, not sobbing into hankies. Those that borrowed things from me, will keep a part of me and hopefully will remember me often.

How can someone be so attached to things that they would throw away the most precious thing in the world, friends? People have me stumped.

I guess another pet peeve is the subject of tomorrows rant, what makes things that are useless such as the paper we call money, when you cannot use it except to give it for other useless things? Why is gold so precious when you canít eat it, cook with it, or make a useful tool from it? Why are diamonds so precious when a breath-taking sunset is taken for granted? I shake my head with the wonder of all of itÖ.
