No Exit

I always get a kick out of noticing those ‘No Exit’ signs you see on some “dead end” streets. I always think, “Horsefeathers; of course there’s an exit.”

I’ve often enough felt as though I was boxed into a corner – that there was no hope. No exit.

But things always open up again. Sometimes fast, sometimes not as fast as I might like.

Not sure what the options are ahead for us, we human beans on Planet Earth. With toxic, polluted air, water & earth all around us, what are we to think? What are we to do??

My “spiritual” acquaintances believe a huge “shift” in consciousness is happening, or coming. They see transformation ahead.

Sounds cool!

I am seemingly unable to buy into their vision.

But then, I know I don’t know or understand or grasp everything. Or even maybe very much at all.

So on I go, one step at a time, a day at a time. Enjoying being “here & now,” here & now (mostly).

Somehow things…proceed.


So phooey to “no exit.”

Just exit unknown, maybe.
