Well, friends, here we are all hunkered down for the duration, although no one yet knows what or how long that duration will last, could be days, weeks, months, years…… ~~~~~No Paychecks in the mail, although our glorious leaders have decided to toss a sop to the peasants, man, a $1,200.00 check, (And many Billions for the Corporations), for most of us that will not even cover a rent payment, much less put food on the table……What to do to survive? ~~~~~Well, all I can do is share my own experience. Back in November, my Lady Love up and died on me, man talk about a Broken Hearted Man, I completely shut down, I just sat there in my old log house, I ate nothing, not one bite of food for 40 + days, talked to no one, all I wanted to do was die, until a neighbor at last showed up, brought me a bowl of soup, and said; “Man is this what your lady would have wanted you to do?” So I thought about that, and I decided that since I had been saving money to support my Lady, because I was sure I would depart this world first, that I could just give most of that money away to good causes, like my local food pantry, like MSF. Like Hospice….. ~~~~~Then I realized I could live just fine on almost nothing, my stomach was shrunk to the size of a golf-ball, 3 tablespoons of Yogurt, a few pieces of canned peaches and pears, and I was good to go for another day, plus I had all this time on my hands, like you I have a Life Sentence here on Earth, I am here until I die…..So when this Virus showed up, it was like nothing to me, it either gets me or it doesn’t, so no big deal, just carry on, write, read books, sit back and watch the fire in my wood stove, play on my drums, haul water, carry in wood……A nice peaceful world I inhabit. The nearest town to me is 20 miles away, I have not been there in three months now, I am good until I run out of Yogurt…..I am not tempted to purchase “Stuff”, I have no T.V., no so-called ‘Smart Phone’, I do not even have a hot water heater, a bath tub, I heat water on the wood stove & bath out of a 3 gallon Pan, yet, guess what? I am perfectly content with this life……So look at your own lives and see if you can live just fine without this World Destroying Greed Machine…..

I still retain the ability to think for myself, therefore I write blogs looking for some-one to hold a discourse with... For example our local library here in Homer, Alaska just was gifted an Oxford English Dictionary set of 20 volumes. What a Great Gift... This is the essence of life: " To gift a Great Gift." The .org: Building the House of Mankind. The most important thing right now, that we have to do is make sure our children have a good livable, planet, which means we have to start cleaning up the mess we have made of this home of ours....
