Whatever is bothering you, get over it. If you can’t get over it, live with it. And if you can’t live with it, gracefully die without it, whatever It may be. Amen.
The economics of staying alive is a reality with which you might want to partner. The economics of staying alive ~ let us begin with that! The economics of staying alive ~ I came up with that phrase just now. Please congratulate me. Thank you. Thank you. Thank you, everybody.
Way back when I was a tot crawling around in diapers, I decided to expend as little energy as possible on the economics of staying alive so that I could concentrate on more euphoric matters. First, you need something else to believe in ~ like Jesus. He embraced poverty ~ went full throttle for sleeping outside on the ground a time or two. So I figured His was the best example to follow. Men, and women too, slept on the ground a lot in old westerns. So I watched a lot of westerns & gained a healthy admiration for the landscape ~ and the desert looked most beautiful to me. So now I live in Yuma, a city in the desert.
When all is said or not said, and done or not done, I’d like to add: when you finally find a job, pay your Social Security every pay check you get. And make sure you have Social Security to pay into while working. Yes, make sure ~ by voting in this wonderful democracy that belongs to us U.S. citizens. Then you too can be a partner with reality when you’re an old ne’er-do-well like me.
With a little luck, you can add to this bounty with a few years military service. This might provide you free medical, later, while enjoying the stars.
Now, if you’re real down n’ out, can’t work, can’t get into the U.S. Army, get kicked-out of the emergency room of the local hospital for being a loud mouth with no manners, be comforted by the overwhelming & joyous fact that anyone can be a disciple of Jesus. All you have to do is read scripture in the daylight hours & sing hymns in the moonlight.
