Sometimes Life is Just Plain Boring!

No matter where you live, no matter what you do, no matter who you are, sometimes life is just plain boring. It does not have to bore you though. Life is all in how you look at it.

Around here in the swamp, boring is what you want life to be. If it is not boring, then there is flooding, snakes, alligators and so many other things to deal with that it’s not even funny.

Boring is okay for me, because when it is boring Ellen and I can take a nice walk down the road behind the house. There, we can watch wispy clouds in the sky, see all the birds and listen to the sounds they make which are always as pleasing to the ear as they are to the eye.

Imagine a slow peaceful stroll in the countryside with a little breeze in your face and warm sunshine on your back. No mosquitos, no cars, no city noise_just the rustle of tree leaves and an occasional whistle as a mourning dove flies out of a nearby tree, spooked by our presence.

There is time to think without interruption and a little pleasant conversation as we stroll along hand in hand. What could be nicer than that?

So, the next time you think you want to be buzzing down the highway at 80 mph with the radio blaring, window shopping on a city street or even reading a fast paced book as fast as your eyes will take you from page to page, think about me, taking a leisurely stroll in the peace and quiet of my swamp.
