Thinking about a Hopper post and what I wrote.
Messy things really, who needs them
We all do.
Get in the way of real work
Or ARE they the real work?
Lolly gag, dreamer, wasting your time
Or is it?
What good does it do, what does it produce
Maybe a real human being.
I'm going to drink my tea
And then go cut my grass
But not chastise myself for letting the grass get long
In the first place.
Did the growing grass hurt anyone?
I doubt it.
Did I help anyone by crying on the patio?
Maybe I helped myself.
I want to be more than mower of grass
or a counter of coins
or an enforcer of "LAWS"
And that just takes time of its own.
Better to have tall grass and a full heart
Than a close cropped lawn and an empty shell.
Better for me anyway
You choose what it best for you.
