We are all wound up over the state of human insanity in our world and we tend to express our discontent on what Rachel Maddow calls the internet machine.    But all of this will end in a predictable way.   We will remain incense; meanwhile we grow old, infirm, diseased or injured and then we all die. 

We get put in the ground, we get cremated, we get sky burial or some not so lovable love one flushes us down the toilet.

And then generations pass and people will be wound up over the human insanity in the world: liberals will be disgusted with the way the rich are treating the poor; and people with hearts and brains will be protesting the next war; Christians will be bigoted against their next perceived enemy; while politicians placate the factions in power in order to retain their exulted station.

The world is constantly moving – there is constant change; but everything stays the same.

Meanwhile Mother Earth presents us with an opportunity to witness astounding splendor – if we would only disconnect and observe. 


In two weeks we will experience the Spring Equinox.   This is a magical time when the day and the night are equal in duration and the earth moves from Winter into Spring in our hemisphere.  

This should be a time of celebration: a time when we stop what we are doing for a couple of days and stand in awe at the transformation that is taking place on our world.   This is a time that we should be aware of our own insignificance and marvel at the miracle that is the accident of our existence.   Once people lit bonfires and danced through the night…

Now we are too busy – or too preoccupied with the absurdities of our own making.

Spring Equinox: March 20th.    First day of Spring – March 21st.

Take a break

the Ol’Buzzard


  1. Very nice Buzz!
    I really don't give a damn about politics or most of the stuff that excites people, but I do care about the longer days and about a special day where day and night are of the same duration. Much of what has helped me is not having a TV. I've been without one for about six months now and really have no idea what nonsense they are talking about today and I say nonsense cause in the whole scheme of things there is absolutely nothing on TV that makes a difference. I do like the "Internet Machine" though, but I don't think I use it for many of the same things Rachel Maddow has concerns about. :)
    Everything is everything. Ha.

  2. It's also a time to try and balance an egg on it's end.

  3. One glance at our little blue speck in the Universe tells me all I need to know...and it has nada to do man-made isms.

    Great post Ol'B!
