Forest Fires

Forest Fires. You know, we create our own shit. Even the bad stuff that happens to us, it’s how we deal with it that determines how bad it really is.

Sometimes things are not bad at all but we make them bad. Some of us are determined to sabotage the good things. Why? Is it childhood guilt instilled from our Mothers? That no one will ever be good enough for us? Or, from our Fathers that nothing we do will be good enough? Or is it just our own desire to create a situation of self-loating and suffering so we can be pitied?

Life is sometimes like a poker hand. It’s not all about what cards you’re dealt, it’s how you play them. Take for example how Tom Dwan, with a 7 2 off-suit (about as bad of a poker hand you can get) took a $650,000 pot from Sammy George, who had a pair of Aces and and a pair of 6s (that’s a good hand). During the play Tom even told Sammy what cards he had. Life might deal you a 7 2 off-suit, just play it well and there’s a chance you’ll do alright.

It could be always worse you know. You could be a baby without a brain or part of a human centipede (warning, both links contain stuff you can’t un-see, so click with caution.)

I’m jumping through hoops walking on high wires
but I’m still putting out forest fires
Biting my tongue speaking to the choir
but I’m still putting out forest fires.

I’m sinking like a stone
half way gone and half way home
and the journey ends at alone

I’m jumping through hoops walking on high wires
but I’m still putting out forest fires
Biting my tongue speaking to the choir
but I’m still putting out forest fires.

I’m mintz’ng all my words
but what is said is not what’s heard
it’s all just quite absurd

I’m jumping through hoops walking on high wires
but I’m still putting out forest fires
Biting my tongue speaking to the choir
but I’m still putting out forest fires.
