The Tree and "Stuff"
I decided to take my old camera to San Blas because of the sand and salt water at the beach. I found the camera and these photos were still on it from two years ago. I certainly wouldn't want to risk ruining my good camera. It was one of the reasons for my broken ankle. In a split second I had a choice of putting my hand in the water that held the camera and breaking my fall or falling with the camera over my head. I made the WRONG choice. I saved my two hundred dollar camera and broke my ankle. Oh well, no reason to obsess over that split second bad decision. The past can't be changed. I have to live with it.
Seems like all I have been doing lately is messing around with my suitcases. My STUFF. Makes me think of that George Carlin rift about our STUFF that someone sent me a few months ago, how we spend half our lives worrying about our things and carrying them around with us.
I just looked at it again and got another few laughs. He did it in 1986 at the Comic Relief. So far, 2,948,598 people have looked at this video. What a hoot. If you want to find it, look on You Tube, George Carlin talks about Stuff...... Now I can get back to packing my Stuff with a lighter heart. It makes me realize that we are ALL nuts when it comes to our things.....
