Just a Thought Series ~ July 29, 1971

Having questions makes you human
Perhaps it's time to do some thinking
But there are no thoughts 
It seems this free and open space 
Has allowed me to unplug

As we get caught up in life we tend to forget about the simple acts that help us to find the elusive compass point of center. Life is short, it's important take more time outs and unplug from it all. Some destinations may be in your own back yard or just up the road.

This time, like all times, is a very good one, if we but know what to do with it. Ralph Waldo Emerson

Time cools, time clarifies; no mood can be maintained quite unaltered through the course of hours. 
Mark Twain

This is the no excuses tour, time wasted is time lost forever.
