After looking at the way things are on this earth, here’s what I’ve decided is the best way to live: Take care of yourself, have a good time, and make the most of whatever job you have for as long as God gives you life. And that’s about it. That’s the human lot. Yes, we should make the most of what God gives, both the bounty and the capacity to enjoy it, accepting what’s given and delighting in the work. It’s God’s gift! God deals out joy in the present, the now. It’s useless to brood over how long we might live.
In Seattle, a bus passed me and when I saw it, I literally stood openmouthed for a good 30 seconds. Why? Because apparently now Community Transit has DOUBLE DECKER BUSES. This is so incredibly cool that I may have to ride one of them just for the heck of it, even though I don’t actually need to go anywhere on the route. (Community Transit primarily serves Snohomish County, and I don’t think I’ve ever had cause to use one of their buses.) I hope Metro and Sound Transit gets some double decker buses soon!
Finally, I’m instigating a new Calvin and Hobbes day. Once a week — whichever day seems best to me — I’m going to post a Calvin and Hobbes cartoon. I’ll start us off with probably my favorite Calvin and Hobbes cartoon ever: “Is this a trick question?”
Two days until RAMROD. Not that anybody around here is counting.
