Europe's a little easier.
photo love, thanks to walter the astrologer.
We were told lately that we just kinda...float along. Never been one for schedules, rules, bosses, organization, and all of that kinda stuff. We kinda like going along with things. We don't mind switching plans last minute. We could eat spontaneity for breakfast. Is that really so bad? We kinda feel okay about it. But it did make us think of the silly little ditty from the very forgettable 'You, Me, and Dupree':
"I see all you fresh-faced kidlets, sitting there in your neat little rows, and you're all just pods. Pods, waiting for your instructions. Now, some of you are gonna get zapped right away and be 15-year-old prodigies, little midget Olympic gymnasts with their pictures on cereal boxes. Some of you will go on to college, and you'll find your rhythm there, then go chase down the titans of industry, or maybe straighten out our problems at the UN. But some of you, and this is the group that no one ever comes into Career Day and addresses, and it's criminal. Some of you are just gonna float along, eating spicy foods, humming black people's music into your 30s. Well into your 30s, languishing. This group of pods is gonna do a lot of languishing. And you're gonna take some heat for it. Sadly, you will. Europe's a little easier. They seem to understand a little better. So does South America. I went to Argentina one time, and everyone seemed to be sitting around. It was beautiful. But, that's okay. You stay loose. Stay liquid. Laugh a lot. But be ready."
So, we thought...maybe it's time to conjure an up-to-date manifesto. Something that says 'Yes, We May Be a Cute Yellow Ducky Floatin' Along The Big Bathtub But We Are Also a Traveling Soldier With Our Mind On What Matters and What Matters On Our Mind' sort of thing. And we'd like to hear yours as well. Think it out, drink it out, shake it out. Come on, we dare you.
Ours...are coming soon. Need a jumpstart? Download "Let it Out" by the Hombres and get down with yo bad self, Flava Flav.
