The other day – Saturday to be precise – I was sat in Nottingham at about half four in the afternoon having a bag of chips, it was my first meal of the day and allowed me to sit and contemplate stuff as the traffic flowed by. The people on the buses were very inquisitive about my feast in paper and I made a great show of overly enjoying it because sometimes its the only thing to do.
Animals in zoos should try it, make us all crave some bizarre food, the gift shops would make a killing. Anyway, settled on a slowly warming metal bench, I considered my place in life. Chips are of course the food of thought, with plenty of salt and vinegar lavished on them, and I started my thoughts off with my physical place in the world.
Being still whilst everybody bustles around you is always a good thing, unless you are tying your shoelaces of course. I am always unsure of whether I feel incredibly small in this moving world or at the centre of it, thereby attaining some sort of omnipotence. Far be it for me to elevate myself so sitting on Hera’s lap or anything but I have written about that sort of thing awhile back somewhere on these pages.Anyway I digress from the point that I haven’t even begun to make yet, thus not digressing so therefore rendering this whole sentence slightly pointless but necessary to somebody somewhere in the grand scheme of things. Possibly. What I am trying to say is that it is so easy to become consumed in all the frivolous stuff and then wonder what exactly it’s all about.
Perhaps it is where the true pursuit of happiness gets a bit murky and with the realisation, it then becomes tempting (and don’t deny it) to wish to go feral for a bit and do something fun, and sod the consequences. That was my mood on the day, according to painstakingly typed notes made on my phone with the non business end of a wooden fork. I think those thoughts never really leave me, perhaps I am a dreamer after all, still a bit of cash could make me a do-er.
Anyway there isn’t a real point to this post, just a quick state of mind post that may have gone somewhere had I had the forethought to write it up sooner. Anyway you deserved something from me as I have been away for a bit…I shall be around your blogs within a day or so and then I will be sure to have something of relevance to say.
