WHY WORRY? BE HAPPY!

Things were so simple...
when I had no worries...
I was a tennis bum who evolved into a middle aged
beach bum/stoner/philosopher/volunteer lifeguard-body surfing/father/husband.....
the last two titles come with the most responsibilities... I deeply want to be a good father and I guess it would help to please the mama so the whole family can be happy ( =without worries and free??)....would we be happy without worries and free??? My better half is taking a bike ride to escape from me...
it's a full moon and she is in one of her manic moods ....king and queen tides are happening as the stormy weather and varying degrees of cyclones hit the Coast of Oz....the waves knock up to the fence of our backyard of dune vegetation...


(I guess....I'm no shrink and I have never trusted the profession or philosophy of diagnosing and making judgements that someone is mildly or seriously fucked up)
my angel b is very angry about not including her on the checking account while I was on the phone with the New Mexico bank wondering why my account was put on inactive status...
but maybe it's a good thing before somebody uses my account ....

I'm sorry honey, I love you
but....financial trust and love most often appear to be separate entities... I fear losing financial control of this little nest egg that I've saved and waited for all my life
along with the financial safety and coziness...
we are in store for some very wild times with little trust in banks or any kind of investment...
except that
the safest place to save is land...


except what will happen if a tidal wave takes away all of the beach??
or a tornado blows away my house in the Okie Zone??

che sera sera...the future's not ours to see...
happiness is living in the now...
to err and sin is human
to forgive is divine (?) (if there is a God or a place for angels and good people??)
money is the root of all evil
and it appears to be the main reason for many relationships souring over time...yep I'm a tight ass and so were my parents...
but thanks to them and my tight ass ways....
we can now live comfortably on the beach for a few more months
unless the Oz governments taxes away any cash that I have left...

my greedy banking brother of course took most of the cash bailing out on this little haven on the beach...oh well

we would have been comfortable for many years if we both kept it..
Ron is already extremely wealthy as are most bank CEOS at the extreme expense and detriment to their fellow brothers and human beings!
we both could have profited from this investment in land over the long term....bummer....
so many times I feel like a beach bummer....so why worry, be happy??
let's enjoy the benefit of the infamous herb ...while most of the past leaders of our country have denied enjoying it...
while here in Oz, the leader of the "liberal" opposition party, Malcolm Turnbull, admits to have actually inhaled the herb in carefree days of you...Liberal is conservative in Oz as most things are the opposite here down Unda!
Ie... cyclones, toilets and driving are all in the opposite direction from at least from the American perspective...
I chatted with Daniel just now...
He's obsessed with the surf ...it's a very healthy obsession with many of the folks here including myself
The sea has a way of drawing your attention everyday...
it's a daily source of entertainment
Everyday there is a daily stream of folks staring from our favorite Ocean St. lookout perch ...
I grew up for a few years in these two blocks between the Parthenon and 135 Hedges avenue...
We all religiously observe how Neptune, our God of the Sea,
is behaving
he has evolved into a Zen Master of travelling on the waves with boards and flippers

he and Steve are both resident masters of the beach

learning the science and nuances of the sea..
Daniel grew up on the surf learning to swim and surf with the Nippers, the young surf club class that is free to the public

coastal residents donate their time to their local surf life saving club....
each weekend there are classes on our beach with hundreds of young nippers learning how to swim , surf and rescue as early as age 5! That would be our dream for Colin Murray Garvald!

That is the perfect backyard playground for children!
Is it the money??

with many women it appears to always to be the bottom line of a relationship
for humans , it makes or breaks us...

this currency 0f coins and bills that we use as a tool of civilization to control us just the way religion is civilizations way to control the thinking of mankind

why can't folks realize that the best things in life are free??...folks teach our children how to be lifeguards for free...

wouldn't it be nice if we just donated our time and
quit being so greedy??
This beach bum lifestyle has certain limits and budgets....
Just to have this place in paradise is costing so much in taxes, rates and fees...I suppose to be without worries and stress would make a person much happier..Now I am doing my best to be an Aussie beach bum...without any worries..especially financial ...
we both now have bikes which cause very little carbon imprint...if only my other half could be happy without having to buy into the yank philosophy of spend now and paying later... I suppose that I might sound very selfish...and thoughtless?? I believe that I am being very thoughtful of our future

and how our child will have the choice to inherit this lifestyle!!
"Our relationship with our father will often affect our relationships with the other men who will come into our lives. You may have learned to behave and think in certain ways because those were the ways that your father acted and thought. Certain talents that you possess may have been passed down to you by your father.
There also may be personal issues that you inherited by virtue of who your father is. Understanding how your relationship with your father has influenced you can help you better understand yourself and the life that you have created. In a time when mothers, the sacred feminine, and female energy are being honored, it is important not to forget the importance of fathers. Father energy and mother energy are the two complementary energies necessary to bring a healthy human being to fruition in the world. Many of the ideas surrounding fathers are changing in the wake of more modern parenting styles and the more egalitarian roles that are evolving between the sexes. More men are embodying the mother energy these days, and a woman can provide father energy for her children. Either way, we can all benefit from thinking about our fathers and how they have influenced who we’ve become and the ways that we walk through this world. Let us remember to honor our fathers."

  1. Hi. don't worry, be happy. How do you achieve such a thing? To truly be happy, one's basic needs have to be met. Maybe, that is going for a nice brisk walk early in the morning, or maybe having a smoke with an early cup of coffee? Who knows. But, whatever this involves only one really knows. And no one can speak for another. This is something that goes beyond the surface(all you analytical wanna-be motherfuckers.) Thank you and Good Night.
