You Have Something More Important You Should Be Doing



Almost 14 billion years ago, you were born. The Big Bang, plasma coalescing into particles, suns born and dying to create heavier elements that eventually built the framework of galaxies and the solar system and the big rock we call Earth. About 4.5 billion years ago that last bit happened and through upheavals in astronomical collisions and a Goldilocks placement and evolution from single-celled masses, life was born. 65 million years ago, a journey began that turned mammals into you. Right there. Now. A human being, reading these words.

The entirity of existence has conspired to put you right there. Right now.

You probably have more important things to be doing than reading this.

Go do it.


Yours Truly,
Ricky


(sorry, having a moment. but seriously, go do it.)

Right now my higher purpose is training for a triathlon. And to finish this cup of coffee first. :o)

Somehow, I feel ensnared... but I like it.

Encourage them to read, but shame them for so doing. Why didn't I think of it?!

Cake Betch said...

Nope! I don't. Just sittin' here reading stuff and not doing anything productive. Thanks though!
