Minding the Body, 24/7
Little Miss Fuckit, sat on a tuffet
Eating her curds and whey;
Along came a rider,
who got down beside her
And banged Miss Fuckit away.
“Where would most of us be without our Bodies and Minds? One thing, at least, is certain: we would not be in this Post, of which those intriguing entities are the principle subject.
“Being both mental and physical at the same time, twenty four hours a day in all kinds of weather, is a demanding task which I personally feel deserves far more credit than you or I are ever likely to receive. Particularly meritorious is our capacity to keep the body nicely “idling” or “turning over” while the Mind is engaged in performing those elegant nocturnal acrobatics called dreams.
“For top performance, of course, the most important requirement is that rare condition known as Perfect Health, characterized by a total lack of symptoms, and hardly even referred to in medical literature. At the opposite end of the spectrum there is a totally inactive state which (for lack of a better term) is usually described as being “dead.”
“Between these two extremes, our strange twosome of Mind and Body shuffles uncertainly along from day to day, sometimes very oddly paired, and occasionally not even on speaking terms, but always chained together under an indeterminate sentence called “Life.”
Gleaned principally from Chapter IV. “Who’s Minding the Body?” of the Monsieur Ashleigh Brilliant’s ALL I WANT IS A WARM BED AND A KIND WORD AND UNLIMITED POWER.

Life just isn't fair...youth possesses great health and great body for the most part...the old possesses knowledge and wisdom...it is maddening that science till now has not been able to bridge or combine the two...I love what I have gained thru life at this age but middle age is the next step to seniors...just isn't fair...|
For me a man isn't a man until he turns 50...he has gained insight...experiences have taught him what life is about...perhaps that is why I dislike many who pursue me who are much younger than my age...life sucks at times hehehe

I graciously accept such wonderful sentiments...Elton is possibly one of the best lyricist and entertainer in the 20th and 21st century...too bad he is so wacko...hehehe...nevertheless the words are truly beautiful and thank you from the deepest part of me.|
