On one hand, it’s good to tell the truth. But on the other, it’s just not. The truth often seems so negative. A real buzz kill ~ bad energy.
Who would ever move to Amelia Island, if they first considered the paper mills, the bad smell, the ugly billowing grey chemicals, being forced on the sky. The nebulizer of febreeze spraying it’s acid aerosol. But we don’t know it. We’re unaware. It’s best to not think about it.
And what about our muddy waters. Sales and marketing experts, tell the tale of runoff, from the river and the marshes. It seems to me that if that were true, the water would have been muddy when I was a kid. But it wasn’t. It was blue and clear. You could see your feet under the water.
Would people really sell everything they have and move to Costa Rica, if they knew the possibilities that lay ahead. There is the constant threat of burglaries, in the street and in your home. Drugs are rampant. Prostitution is legal and many older men fall in love with twenty year olds and actually believe it an equal and undying, smoldering affair. (I’m not going to tell them any different) Just about everyone is robbed in construction deals. They are always shocked. I, personally, have been taken by CLOSE FRIENDS and NEIGHBORS. Not for much, but enough to feel the sting. Not only of losing money, but to feel the pain of knowing, that people I thought I could do business with, were just lecherously, seeking to steal. Oh, and let’s not forget dengue, called break bone fever, with good reason, not to mention, stomach parasites and bott flies.
All of the choices that we make in our life, becomes our life. How are we to protect ourselves from what lurks?
We really can’t.
Is there a devil behind every bush?……….Yes, there is.
See what I mean! That truth doesn’t sound so good.
So, today I am going to put on my rose colored glasses and say, I’m living in Paradise! Ain’t it Grand to be Alive. I’m so Happy.
When the lady at the Flash Food Store asks me how I’m doing today, I’m going to tell her that I’m doing FANTASTIC, because I know if I say I’m doing good, she’s going to say, “Only Good”.
This is the Game of Life, of which, I would be a loser.
I’m not out for fame and fortune ~ so that just leaves me with my body and my breath.
Home Sweet Home
