A story about love and loss. It made me sad and laugh. Just like life. Relatable to us all.
When will men learn they will never top God?
Love and Loss
Since I was a child I was fascinated by opera. I don't know why. I think we are intrinscally who we are at birth. And of course, thereafter, many factors contribute to the character we develop over time. For as long as we are breathing, we are all a work in progress. Grow on.
After the show I went for a stroll. There is nothing I love more than walking at a leisurely pace and just taking in what I want to take in when inspired to do so. There is nothing I hate more than being rushed, that sense of urgency, and feeling of having to be any place other than exactly where I am. I really hate that. More than anything! Timelessness is more my flow.
So, on my eveyday stroll, a great meditative experience for me, I took a picture yesterday that inspired me. One of the endless cafes in Seattle offers people free food if they are hurting in life. All I could think was, wow, what a novel concept [being sarcastic]. People before profit. Imagine a world where this was true? What a wonderful world indeed. Order over chaos.
Instead of Bezos and Musk trying to flex who has the bigger d*ck. And man being boring, and predictable, always trying to control and dominate that which he never will. And doing all they can to colonize space, and in the process, f*ck the planet! They should spend money on society on this planet and building this world up so that human beings may have a quality life experience while here. Bezos grew on me a bit. Amazon does have the best customer service!
But I think his vision of creating a glass capsule in space that just floats around theoretically for eternity, while housing a million people, is the most misguided way to spend one's time and money. Bezos needs to focus on this planet and humans here. It's great he is paying for college education for his employees. That's a start. But he needs to spend money on social programs, particularly if he is not going to be paying taxes on his zillions. I'd settle for that compromise. Pay your taxes or pour the money into society on planet Earth. Ideally, both would be better. As for Musk, Mars is going to burn up just like every planet when the Sun explodes. These guys. Shaking my head. When will men learn they will never top God?
La Bohème premiered on February 1, 1896. The human foibles are timeless, unchanging.
