It's Election Day! How was your voting experience?
Well yes, it was fantastic thanks. Of course I live in Australia, so I didn't have a vote today, but even though we hate to admit it, whatever happens in America affects us in the end. Little old australia, stuck here like a wart on the arse of the world. lol. I just finished reading a book (by an australian author) and he put it beautifully. He said Australia is like an old lady who dies in her apartment and no one even realises she's been missing until six weeks later.
Anyway the point is that I'm sick of the election. Obama won. great. Now, lets get on with it. When it all comes down to it, in my day to day life, it all means jack shit.
What does mean jack shit to me are the basics. You know most people just go along, living their lives, and they don't understand that it's getting back to basics that really counts. Until you realise that, nothing else is ever going to matter.
I listened to an interview a couple of years ago with Dr Jane Goodall. I've listened to it a few times since. She makes more sense to me than any politician I'm ever going to hear. If you don't know who she is then look her up.
If there's one thing you should do today, it's listen to this interview. Sure it goes for a while, but just play it in the background while you're wasting your time doing other crap. Just play it in the background while your surfing the net, or cooking dinner, or laying on the lounge. Just play it and listen to it.
This is what it's all about. This is where it happens. She is the person who gives me hope. This interview was done by Andrew Denton on Enough Rope. (An australian show).
