The Sheep bleat out to one another every time this season comes around. We are all dumb cattle lowing in the field. Saying this and that. We wander about. Shitting in the pasture we call a life. Can't just one of us be different? Climb the barbed wire fence and run? Break out of the mold? No, sadly we are all headed for the grand ole slaughterhouse lowing and bleating with no thoughts of our own these days. Gasoline prices have risen so much I am thinking taking over a refinery might be the new way to go in making illegal money. God knows the old time Mafia would be stealing tanker trucks if they were alive today. So why do we pay there blood money? Why do we all slave day after day at a job that keeps us barely afloat? Buy cars and trucks with such large price tags. Housing has gone through the damn roof. Rent? Don't get me started on rent. People ask why I still live with my family.......Really? You cant figure that one out? Bottom line is I don't have to live the way you think I should. Society has no chains on me and I don't believe the things you people do. I am free by choice. American by birth. Texan cause I damn well love this place. It is where I was born and I adore it. Most of you just do not get it. And I am not mad at anyone for that. I pity the ones who don't. Time has NO MEANING. Unless that is you are doing time. The ones of us who have done time in prison know what I mean. New Year? No, just another damn day....... New way of approaching life? That I can grasp. So lets, all together now. Write your congressman. Write your President , that muslim fuck. Write your Senators. Throw down the gauntlet. Tell them we are sick of them. Please wont someone come along with me. We do not have to live this way. Gasoline needn't turn us into whores. But it is, and it has. Food prices are going up relative to the gasoline prices. What the hell? Where I ask you does gas enter into the feeding of a nation? Tractors? Maybe so. I am just this guy. I don't know it all. But I know fair is fair. I know old ladies cook the best pies. Men are rarely sentimental and when we are you better not be looking. I know a good deal when I find one. I know how to shop and I know how to save. But the way things are going. Saving is a memory. Lord knows I do not have a bank account. Can't afford one. That is sad. I also know that dogs are needy creatures and if you own one spend time with him. Cats are smelly things that I detest. Since we can't do a mad extermination of them all. If you own one. Take care of the damn thing. No I don't want to do it for you. If you ignore your wife, or husband , or girlfriend or boyfriend. Don't be shocked and wounded when they leave. It happens. People can wither like plants. If you have a family member who has wounded you. Forgive them thier ignorance and work on healing. Not on fixing them. You can't anyway. Let shit go. Get drunk one time. Be spontaneous. Climb a tree. Hug an old lady. Give a stranger a ride home. Reach out to someone. Carry a strangers groceries. Stop on the side of the road when you see someone broken down. Help them. Do shit that makes a difference this year. I have lived this way my whole life. My kids used to think I was a bit eclectic. But I am known to bring food to homeless people or bring them home. I mean. Sure some of them are doing it for the handout and
that is bullshit too. But they know who they are. And when you feed one who is really no joke hungry. You can tell. So this year this is my challenge to you. Pay it forward. Like the movie. But no joke. When God shows you a person in need. Say yes Lord. Then get off your ass and Do it! If you listen quietly to the voice that is God he will show you. Sometimes guide you to these encounters. I see these small opportunities almost daily. Mostly small. But be aware. Sometimes... You may be encountering angels in our midst. I believe in them......Do you? Now Get out there and listen. Phil G. Inman Sr.
