Travis Smith: my resume, bio and photos back to the main blog page

Susie got up this morning to find out that we’d made an unapproved Boxing Day gift to some idiot loser.

The garage door was open, so she went out and looked.  Sure enough, my bike was stolen.

Then she went into the living room and discovered that the roof was leaking.  That’s not acceptable.  That’s downright unacceptable. We called our landlord and reported the roof, but not the garage break-in yet.

Not tht I’ve been doing a lot of bike riding, but it was a wonderful mountain bike, and I really did enjoy it from time to time.  The really crappy thing is, Susie’s bike is still there, and you just know the asshole is going to come back and try to grab it, too.

The only plus side: this situation would have been a lot harder and more upsetting to deal with on Christmas Day.

“The sad truth is that most evil is done by people who never make up their minds to be good or evil.”

...who said it?

“Almost every American I know does trade large portions of his life for entertainment, hour by weeknight hour, binge by Saturday binge, Facebook check by Facebook check. I’m one of them. In the course of writing this I’ve watched all 13 episodes of House of Cards and who knows how many more West Wing episodes, and I’ve spent any number of blurred hours falling down internet rabbit holes. All instead of reading, or writing, or working, or spending real time with people I love.”

...who said it?

“Live a good life. If there are gods and they are just, then they will not care how devout you have been, but will welcome you based on the virtues you have lived by. If there are gods, but unjust, then you should not want to worship them. If there are no gods, then you will be gone, but will have lived a noble life that will live on in the memories of your loved ones.”

“I play with variables constantly.”

“Only the person who has learned Continual Love coming from a heart of Gratitude/Worship can effectively deal with the problem of loneliness.”
