Well, close enough, it's about a 20 minute drive away. They come every 2 years, and I always find a way to go. This year I had to switch shifts with someone at work haha. It's sooo awesome to see in person... well if you like that kind of stuff.
hehehe. yea i agree, i wouldn't want to be content being mindless all the time like a cat. maybe now and then, but cats will never pick up a wrench or draw a picture. cats can't protect themselves from much, they are out there in the cycle of nature and are a common part of the food chain. they don't really know or care what life is, what they are, why they are. but we know such things, and we are rewarded by having homes and heaters and internet so we can keep growing. nature still does it's thing, but it would be nice if people could be a bit more in tune with nature.
