Courier is fun too. Delivery guy even. There's also plenty of cabbies that work the day time. Airport rides and such. For a contemplative man, there is more than one gratifying conversation to be had.

I always forget I can consider that as a contingency plan. Seems very enjoyable.

Existence without inspiration is simply killing time on the clock.
I AM OFFICIALLY IN HELL!

I live my philosophy, it's personal to me and people who engage where I live establish an unspoken dynamic, a relationship of sorts, with me and my philosophy.

Cutting folks for sport is a reality for the poor in spirit. I myself only cut the poor in spirit on Tues., Thurs., and every other Sat.

It's good to have balance I think, it's good to be inspired, driven, but it's also good to relax, take it easy, enjoy the simple things, not overreach.
