|The Life and Times of Jim|
|Hi, there. I'm Jim. Welcome to my phlog!|
This site was written for Las Vegas, then LouisVille. Now, it seems to be about anywhere. In these phlogs, you'll see a lot of my personal notes and pictures. I like to post my observations here to remember life and celebrate it. I'm not religious. I don't pray for good fortune. I'm ecstatically grateful for the gift of life and I think our time should be remembered and not taken for granted. I'm not a writer. I think pictures tell stories so much better than words. I love just about everything in this life, and, I guess that would have to include you. So, if you've seen me, don't be surprised if your picture is in here somewhere. Of all the critters, people are absolutely the most interesting.

Swung by McDonalds and picked up 8 Caramel Machiattos.
Dropped off a couple of cups to John and Simone. Stan, his wife and daughter were out, so we swung by Anythony's condo. It was really great to see my old friend.
I believe doing something nice and unexpected is always a good thing.

12/18/2012 07:32:11jim Repost - I saw the New Years Ghost
12/31/2006 - I saw the New Years Ghost
I saw a ghost this News Years Eve when I looked in the mirror.
It looked just like me.
After that, I started seeing ghosts all around me.
When you go out this New Years, look around at the people.
Picture them as if you watching them in a video filmed 100 years ago.
Notice how much we all look alike, how well we get along, and how we all seem to be related.
Don't look at our differences.
Look are how much we have in common.
Pretend you lost your long term memory?
Ever see a picture of a Great Great relative that looked just like you?
Ever talked to someone who thought just like you?
If you can think like me for just a moment
Imagine that when we die, we don't go anywhere.
Imagine the we are all reincarnations of our ancestors, without their memories.
Imagine that it goes much deeper than that. Imagine we are all the reincarnations of the dinosaurs and further back.
Is it just me, or doesn't life just seem too obvious?
Animals, birds, fish, insects, we all have the same organs.
We all must be related.
We were born with knowledge.
It came from someone. It probably came from our parents.
Nature could have populated our memories with that of our ancestors but for whatever reason, it didn't.
Who knows, maybe we'd still be arguing about how someone sacrificed our favorite lamb or something...
If you think like I do, you'll know that all life on Earth is related. Given enough time, we all come back.
