So I’m thinking to me self …

I usually take a couple long walks (well, long for me) during the course of the day and I try to escape from my pains and problems and focus on being in the moment.  I usually do a lot of thinking about whatever captures my interest at that particular moment.  Like today and was marveling at how just the tilt of the world makes such a significant change in the seasons and temperatures.  So I was wondering …

Just how many years has this part of the Earth actually experienced weather like this?

So I contemplated that for a tad and then I started thinking how humans have a high level of consciousness.  This now caused me to wonder …

Are we alone in the universe?

I like to think that I allow science and reason to take a front seat for me but then it caused me to further wonder …

Do they have an actual Death Star?

I figure that some sort of evil humanoid type or humanoid resembling being could have something like that since one of the first laws of Statistics is that there are and always will be possibilities or probabilities no matter how great or how small.  So if this is true then there is the possibility that there could be a Death Star in the universe. Then it caused me to wonder …

Do they have something like a Starbucks or Caribou on it?

Then I got to thinking that I had some goofy ass thinking going on but then I reasoned that Corporate America screwed up every decent country in the world so why wouldn’t they screw up a Death Star while they were at it?  It seemed reasonable to me and then I got to wondering …

What lap is this?

I was distracted once again while walking.

I stand there looking out the window and I think to myself “Damn, it looks cold out there.”  Then I check the temp out there.  Oh joy!  It’s a rather tropical -16*F (-27C) out there right now.  What’s the wind chill?  Oh joy!  It’s a rather warm -29*F (-34C).  It’s gonna make for some cold walks today.  I’ll have to practice the time honored Minnesota art of bundling today.  Little wonder I didn’t want to get out of a warm bed this morning.

Before you even start to think or suggest that I’m complaining about the cold, take a step back.  Do I like this cold?  Oh hell no but it’s a part of life here and it makes the coming of a new Spring that much more enjoyable.  Time seems to crawl here during the winter months making me more and more anxious to feel those warm breezes from the south.  Until then it’s just keep a warm fire going in the fireplace and watch the kitties slowly melt into the floor as they lay there soaking it its warmth.
