(a re-post of one of my most popular pieces since the turn of the century. . . JK)
this is the Super-Cyber DJ,
the Doctor of Unusual Views,
the Voice of Great Ideas,
Johnathan B. Goode
with a public service announcement.
First. Thank you Dennis Liddell for the beautiful Javelina photo.
Friends, I let my garden sprinkler run too long and turned the Hobbit Hole just outside my longhouse door into a silky, smooth chocolate-pudding consistency.
This morning I found pristine Javelina hoof prints that, if fossilized today, would be ecstatically studied by civilizations of future millenniums.
They’re here folks! Wild things!
I know they look alien, but the creatures have been here for eons and come in peace.
Like us two-leggeds, they seek food, water, a little bit of love, and a safe place to raise their offspring.
Let us respect them, not fear them.
Thank you for listening to this alert.
Now consider this for a moment.
Take a break from the nonsense-noise of life.
Pick out a good book.
Sit on the earth under one of the standingpeople.
Close your eyes.
Listen to the breeze in the trees , , ,
Recall something for which you are grateful.
Let the feelings linger.
Then open your eyes
Until my next Almost Live! cyber-cast, . .
This is J.B. Goode reminding you
Certainty is the sign of a fool,
but, of course,
I cannot be absolutely sure of that.
