nothing's new under the sun

Every day the sun comes up and if we rise with it, it's another opportunity for us to shine.
But the world seems to be in a mess of mayhem, manufactured by the banksters, pundits, politicians and preachers who are, apparently, so unsatisfied with their own lives that they've got to screw it all up for the rest of us too.

They're like nymphomaniacs, f#@king any and everyone, any and everywhere, any and every time. (and if you haven't noticed, they're bi-sexual) So it's tough to be bright and shiny, inspired and involved, confident and unafraid when "we the people" are getting screwed at every turn. Here in the Keys, we've been a bit more insulated but, after a full year of their nonsense, we're starting to feel it too.

My friends, I don't have all the answers. . . yet. (and when I do get them fully figured, those answers will come to you in a more personal way)

In the meantime, please try to stay inspired.
I offer two links to old Frank Capra flicks that seem to offer direction, "MEET JOHN DOE" and "MR. SMITH GOES TO WASHINGTON". Released in 1941 and 1939 they, more than any rant I can rage, demonstrate (from our perspective in time) that nothing's new under the sun and the more things "change", the more they stay the same.
