That is the rhythm of life is it not? I can't wear a watch either. Too confining.daniel wrote:There is a good deal of truth to that. I'm your "mountain man" type, and spend a lot of time in the wilderness. I have never worn a watch; I work to Nature's schedule. One of the first things you find out in Nature is that Nature ignores man's "schedules." The length of the day varies; when you're in Nature, you get up with the sun, and go to bed shortly after dark. You do less in the winter (shorter days), and more in the summer. When it rains, you do something inside; when it's nice, you do something outside. What I've found from working in remote areas over the years, is that you make an internal list of "things to do," then do the one that works best with the current conditions. Here in the Old West, they call it "Indian time"--you get there, when you get there, as you can never tell what may happen along the way.
I believe we all want to be more natural in some way or another. Is it possible to be truthful to other wishes? When does too much knowledge blind you to reality? When does ask a simple question make it impossible to grasp eternal concepts. Who decides what is best? Where do we draw the line? Every answer that I've heard just bring another question to mind. Where does it all end? If it doesn't, then what is the point of learning anything? I feel as if I am going in circles. Maybe that is a good thing!
