….No Consumer Can Purchase…


So calm, so peaceful, so serene,
hardly a ripple to disturb its surface.
Would that life could follow suit,
the beauty of nature, no consumer can purchase.

  1. Where I need to be. Lakeside, fire crackling, fish cooking, flies flying, mountains calling, weather threatening, people gone, night coming, feeling sleepy. Not much to ask for at all.


    1. HLJ, you’ve conjured up a most beautiful, peaceful and serene image that most of us can only just about imagine and most likely never actually live. We are so busy being worked to pieces and when not working, we are busy ripping and running somewhere to buy something and we never take the time to enjoy the really, really simple and beautiful things in life that are worth more than anything that money could buy. It is my opinion, that life should have been kept more simple and maybe, just maybe so many people wouldn’t be pill popping, alcoholics and stomp down drug addicts(pick a drug of choice)and so forth and so on. Sigh! We will never learn and again, more’s the goddamn pity!

      Thank you for your comment HLJ! Take care brother!
