i understand. others don't, and because they don't Responsibility falls to
i'd like to be able to 'afford' a home of my own, but "can't". i'd like to
be able to have a family of my own, but "can't". i'm an automobile and
motorcycle enthusiast, and i'd love to be able to 'afford' a decent ride,
but all i've got is basic transortation. etc.
the things that need doing have been left undone, to everyone's misery,
because folks've gotten 'side-tracked' by 'stuff'.
i love 'stuff', but i Love what Humanity is actually all about, more. so i
do the work without getting 'side-tracked'.
folks 'borrow' the work i've done to fund their homes, families, 'toys',
etc., but they get 'side-tracked' and fail to do what needs to be done with
what they 'borrow'.
hopefully, i'll be able to sustain life within myself a while longer, and
i'll do what i can while i can.
but i won't get 'side-tracked'.
cheers, Patrik, ken
