6.07.06, The Ideal Life & Nonfiction

This phrase came up in a recent post. Though provoking, if you take it seriously; but that even begs a question, "Does such a life exist?" So,

"What is the ideal life?"

We'll have to come back to this.

This morning I'm flying to Zion — just like in the Matrix, and I can go lament taking the Red Pill. Hm.

Also, the World Cup is almost here and we have a special short story treat, guaranteed to entertain, probably more than anything else on the blog. I've enlisted a friend and writer who caught A Day and Night in the Ideal Life during the last World Cup in Seoul. Need to check some formatting, etc., the identities of the innocent — only the innocent mind you — and then it's yours. Just wondering whether to post it a day early to help get you ready for the big event, or on Friday to help you celebrate the opening day....?

The wait will be worth it.

Franky Scale: really too early to tell, but I'll say 8 for this early am. With SLC approaching, should I say "5"? No, no, no. "12" right?

French Open or World Cup?
Hmmm. Better watch both. : )
Safe flight Monkey Man. We are all anxiously awaiting your arrival in ZION. Must warn you, though, that it is HOTTER than HOT. Hotter than a red rats _ _ _ _ _ m. Well, you know the rest. : )
No annoying phone calls yet, so hopefully the franky scale will remain high. Perhaps, you will even be treated to some casserole love from the dear sisters. And they are dear.
Love your guts- Cancer Sucks!!! but not today, because you are coming home and I get to see you.! WOW.

Simple Life
(Mary Chapin Carpenter)

You're making lists today of all the things you haven't done yet
You're driving everyone crazy, are you having any fun yet
Mother says you oughta get married
Shrink says here's a little blue pill
Too young for your mid-life crisis
Mirror says you're over the hill

There's nothing wrong with you
The simple life gets complicated
There's nothing you can do, just enjoy the view be glad you made it

You're making resolutions and it isn't even New Year's
You could try a new religion, you could wait until the dust clears
Friends say you're way too choosy
Shrink says see you next week
Guru says control your breathing
You're afraid you might have peaked

There's nothing wrong with you
The simple life gets complicated
There's nothing you can do, just enjoy the view be glad you made it

Cuz things could be better, cuz things could be worse
Cuz life can be charmed and cursed
There's fast, slow and stall, no reverse

There's nothing wrong with you
The simple life gets complicated
There's nothing you can do, just enjoy the view be glad you made it

There's nothing wrong with you
The simple life gets complicated
There's nothing you can do, just enjoy the view be glad you made it

THE IDEAL VERSUS WHAT IS REAL
What life IS, instead of what you thought it would be?
This is the beginning of a thought, a comment that I will finish and complete later. At this time, it is just food for thought. My other comment will be about FUN, defining it, keeping it in context of what is REAL and a general question for all to answer: Are you having any fun yet?
whatever. It will make more sense in a few days.
Glad to report that Mr. Jones made it to Zion safely--to borrow a line from another song:
BECAUSE, YOU LIGHT UP MY LIFE. : -)
Big smile and Big love-

Sheria I love the little BLUE PILL. .....
