There is plenty of reason for the way things work out. For instance, we’re told, a person works hard and they prosper. However, the biggest reason that things work out is random. The universe is chaos. It doesn’t consider us or our feelings. It isn’t Jesus or Santa Claus or cares if we have been naughty or nice. If it was most people would live forever and a few would pay for the shit they caused.

Bad things happen to good people. Bad people prosper. Not always, like I said, it’s random.

My brother smoked and drank from the time he was 12. Instead of liver or lung cancer he died of a rare blood disease. He thought it was funny. It also killed his fear of dying. So many doing everything right and dying. He was lucky.

We’re all lucky in the end.

The stars keep time. They swarm over the mountains. Turn south and back. It takes more than a lifetime to know them, to become an expert.

      That is very true. Both Lisa and I come from parents that stressed the worst thing you can be is lazy. They would do ‘busy’ work to keep from sitting down, It sure as hell didn’t make them prosper. Lisa and I are similar to them, Lisa more than I. Generational habits are hard to break. If you want to stay busy, get a low paying job, or even two and you will have plenty to do. Our philosophy is, work harder, not smarter.
