    I have the feeling I'm being weaned from the earth. Any of you other old farts have that notion?

    The phrase "weaned from the earth" conjures a wide variety of images.
    If you're not suckin' on Mother Nature's teat, what nourishment are you getting and from where?

    Planning to go to some other heavenly body to suckle from?

    What do I feel... Here and now, this moment is the most important moment in the universe. Got to experience the **** out of it. No guarantees I'll be around tomorrow to experience anything.

    Many interpretations on this from different 'belief' perspectives, but nonetheless I can agree in context.

    Well, yeah. It's likely the only moment. Nevertheless, there is an apparent progression. The petals seem to be unfolding.

    I noted your "funny" reaction to my post. Don't you wish there was a "poop on you, you stupid idiot" button? Might be fun.

    I remember thinking I was dying a number of times but then I realized I wasn't dead yet and snapped out of it.
