Pondering life's mysteries


As I went to bed last night, I was too tried to sleep. I started thinking of the what if’s and the why’s of life. Sure, I could of called a friend but, most of my friends would not appreciate a call at 1 am to hear me ask them why I thought you should not tip at a Starbucks. So…there I lay comfortably on my pillow wondering about life. I thought the best escape would be to think out loud. I have not been much of a journal keeper but, thought if I had thoughts I should note them.
Yesterday I was at the park, beautiful day. As I walked through the many picnic tables I noticed the families celebrating different occasions. I first walked by a Hispanic family , there was about 20 or so. Laughing, talking, cooking on the bbq. The next table was a group of Samoans. 15 or so, playing their music, throwing the football back in forth. The rest of the park was made up such festivities. As I looked around more I only saw one Caucasian family. Only 5 or 6 people. Sitting at the picnic table…no one really talking, no music, not even laughter. It made me wonder in general why for the most part Caucasians are not as close as a family unit. I have met a lot of people in my short time here and I am surprised to hear when a older father will tell me about his children. They live in different states, one brother does not speak to the other brother, ect. Why is the family unit not close like the other nationalities. I am sure there are several but, based on observation, It make me wonder. My family is very small. When we have gatherings at my moms house , Dad is watching a sporting event, mom in the kitchen, brother up stairs in his room talking on the phone. There is limited conversation. Hhmmmm….another one of life’s mysteries
