Travelling is tiring...

I am sick of travelling.. I want to stay home and shoot pucks at my net.
I know there are more important things in life. War in Iraq, rebuilding Afghanistan, no universal health care in America... the plight of native Canadians, being kind to people, etc etc
But sometimes I don't want to save the world. I want to take slap shots. It seems so selfish.
Am I more selfish or less selfish than other people? Yes I contemplate this as I shoot pucks for no purpose. This really shouldn't be the question--- the real question is "Did I make the world a better place this week ?" (failed miserably) and "will I make the world a better place this week"
I need something more than puck shooting to be proud of myself this week.

Our Lives....

Neil Gaiman.............., ."May your coming year be filled with magic and dreams and good madness. I hope you read some fine books and kiss someone who thinks you're wonderful, and don't forget to make some art -- write or draw or build or sing or live as only you can. And I hope, somewhere in the next year, you surprise yourself."

What is our year going to be like... am I going to help the world be better or just my family? Will I cherish art? Will I be less focussed on work and more on life? Money is not all its cracked up to be. Will I do home improvements or build that boat?

I need all these things --- and I need the world to come along... We have such a wealthy society- we need to change it and help bring life forward..

I know I have been missing for a month but I am back.
