Sometimes I sits and thinks, and sometimes I just sits.
– Satchel Paige
First read that quote on an 8.5×11 paper
on the wall in English class.
Liked it then. Living it now.
“Been sittin’ here thinkin’ back over my life
All of the good things, and trouble and strife
Felt my share of heartache, so many I’ve had
Still think the good things outweigh the bad”
– Flatt and Scruggs, “Good Things (Outweight the Bad)”
Listen to the June Bugs rev up their hypnotic hind legs and wonder about . . .
what, why, if, how about, and the ever-fresh WTF!
We’d have better answers if we had the right questions.
No insights from out here at the Cypress Knee, just getting better and better at sitting still.
Sitting and thinking never was a problem but it has led to some sticky situations, not all of which were unpleasant…
“Sittin, drinkin, superficially thinkin
About the rinsed-out blonde on my left
She was pretty, flirty
Looked about thirty
Would have run away but I was on my own
Said my my my, like a spider to a fly
Jump right ahead in my web!”
– The Rolling Stones, “The Spider and the Fly”
