"From this hour I ordain myself loos'd of limits and imaginary lines, going where I list, my own master total and absolute, Listening to others, considering well what they say, Pausing, searching, receiving, contemplating, Gently, but with undeniable will, divesting myself of the holds that would hold me."

Walt Whitman (1819-92)

"When I look back now over my life and call to mind what I might have had simply for taking and did not take, my heart is like to break."

Akhenaton (d. c.1354 BC)

There's Still Life in the Old Dog Yet

(Note: I will resume the definition-pic-post-quote format soon - Cliff)

Still, about twice a week or so, Mitsi and I go out to check on the plant site and take care of things, even though its been closed for over a year now.

After everything that has gone on, we know it's dangerous to be there alone, so we meet there in the late afternoon. It's amazing how, with enough time under my belt, all the things that seemed so urgent and important have faded into the months and weeks that have passed.

Last week, they took the third and last Mack truck, the same people that stole the rest of the stuff, in the middle of the night. Since this one didn't run, they brought a wrecker. Bold.

Then again, we know who did it, and gaul is his most prominent feature. Well, except for his drinking problem.

This guy owns a business, and I've seen him come in so blasted wasted that his nose literally shines red and he can't even keep his eyes open, much less function or even walk. Yet, he thinks he is so cool that no one notices. If only he knew, the real fact was that no one cares.

Arrogance. I hate it in all its forms. The original sin was arrogance, did you know that? No, I'm not talking about Adam or Eve, I'm talking about Lucifer. He was the one that invented sin, and that was the one he used. He still thrives in it, and those with his mark on them reflect that same attitude.

Yeah, I know I'm ranting. Some things I'm just bitter about. Even David in the Psalms cried out to God about the same topic, and it got his goose too.

And would you believe that even with everything that has happened, there is still a good chance of them bringing this company back to life? And if they do, there will be a good spot for me there. But this time, I'm insisting on things being done above board. The chairman agrees. The people who are arranging the money to do this will insist on it, I'm sure.

And if it works, all the stockholders will come out fine. Since I know so many of them, well, that's one of the reasons I hung in there so long.

So, if this flies, what about my own business? Not a problem. It can run at night, on weekends, even absentee. So that's cool too.

OK, rant mode off. Next time, something of substance.
