Problems of the world…..

All the problems of the world could be settled easily if men were only willing to think. The trouble is that men very often resort to all sorts of devices in order not to think, because thinking is such hard work.

-Thomas J. Watson, American Scientist

Thinking Silently

thinking silently
a smattering
of thoughts
are swirling
in my mind
nothing bad
nothing harmful
nothing slanderous
just normal
thinking
that I usually
do throughout
the course
of the day

Today

Today was
a strange
day

Woke this
morning
thinking
that today
was Saturday
but it turned
out to be
Friday

IT was
eerily
a quiet day
odd for a
Friday

Come tomorrow
it being
Saturday
I should
be
back to
a normal
human
self

Three Things

“We should do three things every day of our life. Number one is laugh. You should laugh every day. Number two is to think, we should spend some time in thought. And, number three is you should have your emotions moved to tears.” – Jim Valvano

Robots

I don’t thing the robots are taking over. I think the men who plays with toys have taken over. And if we don’t take the toys out of their hands, we’re fools. -Ray Bradbury

Life

Life consists in what a man is thinking all day. -Ralph Waldo Emerson

Cookies And Milk

Think what a better world it would be if we all, the whole world, had cookies and milk about three o’clock every afternoon and then lay down on our blankets for a nap.
-Barbara Jordan

Jack Kerouac

I came to a point where
I needed solitude and
just stop the machine
of thinking and enjoying
what they call living,
I just wanted to lie in
the grass and look at
the clouds.

Jack Kerouac

Just Thinking

There’s the saying(s) “time goes by to fast,’ “where did the time go?’ “time sure flies when you are having fun,” etc, etc.

If you ever want time to go by slow, pull up a chair, sit, relax and give the clock your undivided attention, and witness time passing by.

Call it meditation by clock.

A Pondering Moment

Sitting on the couch
writing this post
while watching TV
or is the TV
watching me

Could it be I
am doing both
It could be that
I am multitasking
Its not really a
complicated thing
to do

What I have been
watching for most
of the day Blue
Bloods and Seinfeld

Speaking of Seinfeld
I still laugh watching
Jerry and the gang
as it’s one of the
best TV sitcoms

George Carlin Quote

I do this real moron
thing, it’s called
thinking, and I’m not a
very good American
because I like to form
my own opinion.

George Carlin

Existence

“You aren’t thinking or really existing unless you’re willing to risk even your own sanity in the judgement of your existence.”

–Frank Herbert

Just Thinking

Snow is white.

When it melts, it’s colorless drops of water.

Dogs make you …..

Dogs make you walk.
Politics makes you think.
Only boredom makes you old.

Reality

To think in terms of either pessimism or optimism oversimplifies the truth. The problem is to see reality as it is. — Thich Nhat Hanh

We may believe ……

We may believe that we know what another person is thinking, but most often our efforts at ‘mind reading’ are projections of our own inner, self-centered concerns.
— Susan Edmiston, Leonard Scheff

Thinking

I came to a point where I needed solitude and just stop the machine of ‘thinking’ and ‘enjoying’ what they call ‘living’, I just wanted to lie in the grass and look at the clouds.
