I was walking around a little town called Puyallup when I decided something. Normally deciding things is bad and this was no exception.
I decided I would start a cult. This was a well thought out process that took me all of thirty seconds to settle on. However as I stop walking and sat in the big grassy area in front of city hall I realized a problem, a fatal flaw really, I think one needs some sort of application process to start a cult.
And even worse than that, starting a cult does not look good on one’s resume.
Now I did find out a few days back it was possible even today to become a prophet and thought to myself this could be a good job. But somehow the fact I lose my keys all the time or open the door to the fridge only to stare at the contents and wait and wait …hoping to remember why I am there staring at the food. No not at all good.
Plus prophets they think big huge thoughts and me , the best I can think of to save the world is :
Don’t hurt anyone
Find a way to enjoy this crazy thing we call life
I left my grassy spot in front of city hall and walked up the street. As I passed the antique stores, tea shops and manicure places the silly thoughts of earlier began to fade.
The mountain air has been refreshing for my brain as well as my body. Big thoughts are so much better than the little ones. Then I turned the corner and walked past one car dealership and then another with each car my thoughts got smaller until I was worried about jobs I couldn’t find and terrible gorilla I have no desire to play with.
