There's a saying that goes as such: no one is going to take care of you, but you. Or, my favorite, "you have to look out for number one." Oye. I hate that. I sometimes in my head take that literally and envision some sort of incident involving a hooded man beating me senseless with one of those "We're #1" foam fingers you see at football games. It's interesting, really. We live in a world of conflicting ideologies or morals. "Take care of yourself....Take care of each other...don't let people walk all over you ...do unto others as you would have them do unto you...watch your back...follow the golden rule..." So here's my question: how can I take care of number one while I'm doing unto to others who aren't watching my back? Think about it.It's deep. I promise. Really I think life's problems could be solved by sheer honesty. There just isn't enough of it in the world. I don't believe it's on purpose but perhaps is the by product of all of us peeps trying to live in an idiosyncratic world of opposing viewpoints. Ok...that's enough of that. I'm off to wander the streets with a foam rubber finger and a hooded sweatshirt.
