“If you ever start taking things too seriously, just remember that we are talking monkeys on an organic spaceship flying through the universe.” ~ Joe Rogan
“We admit that we are like apes, but we seldom realize that we are apes.” ~ Richard Dawkins
“Has joy any survival value in the operations of evolution? I suspect that it does; I suspect that the morose and fearful are doomed to quick extinction. Where there is no joy there can be no courage; and without courage all other virtues are useless. Therefore the frogs, the toads, keep on singing even though we know, if they don’t, that the sound of their uproar must surely be luring all the snakes and ring-tail cats and kit foxes and coyotes and great horned owls toward the scene of their happiness.” ~ Edward Abbey
Another groggy morning is at hand. Am I the only one who’s hibernation instinct kicks in mid-Summer? But no worries. It’s working pretty good this way. At least I get enough sleep, right? As for today’s quotes, when I began the initial quote search I had no idea why I picked the topic of evolution as a guideline. But it soon became clear that it is evolution of consciousness that is poking at me. I don’t know, I may be a throwback. About a year ago I was chastised by two young adults because I was combing my hair. One of them said to me, upon seeing my bemusement, “That’s like so 70s”. I had no idea. It’s out of vogue and I still do it; I mean, it’s always been about the hair. It seems I may not have evolved. Why do they still make combs.? Just sayin’. So, here I am, lounging atop a goofy mood, and ready to start getting primed for the workday. I think I’ll just drop expectations and results-oriented projection. It’s just not me. Yeh, whatever. The day feels like a good one, and I suspect that I will be playfully grumpy today, kinda like Eeyore on Indica. Or Tigger on Adderall. Or Piglet, who is . . . . oh, never mind.
Peace out, y’all. Goof gloriously.
