happ-ee fri-day!

whew...

and here we are
another
workweek
gone by

and what
do we have to
show for it?

well
i'm gonna
tell you-all
a little secret here

i wish
that i could
be doing
something
to better our
small blue planet

i dream of
companies
owned by the people
who work in them,
who's mission
is to
'do no harm'

creative companies
where the bottom line
is not
how cheap to make
how much to sell

but

how best
to make a product
that lasts a long
long time
and
have minimal impact
on our mother earth
and
that 90 percent
of our population
can afford
and use/need

i dream some day
of creating these
companies
helping their birth
and then
watching,
as you watch a toddler take it's first steps,
them grow
and prosper
and then,
like a young adult
no longer needing me,
able to survive
on it's own

looking back
only to smile
and say thanks

and now for something completely different : TribeWanted

Link looks like the picture on my desktop at work, with a note that says "why I do what I do" on it.

Thanks, and have a great weekend.

I wonder if there are any companies in the world who meet your criteria. It would be a good thing.

You know why I keep my vehicles for a long time?

A: They become a part of me, of my spirit, and they serve me well.

B: A newer one may pollute a little less, but not much.

C: Just think of the pollution caused to create a new one.

That alone creates much more pollution than just keeping my old one longer. They need to stop making so many and force folks to keep the old ones longer. And make them keep them running clean.

Besides, my ego doesn't need new rigs.

Visions:

People hand in hand
Have I lived to see the milk and honey land?
Where hates a dream and love forever stands
Or is this a vision in my mind?

The law was never passed
But somehow all men feel theyre truly free at last.
Have we really gone this far through space and time
Or is this a vision in my mind?

Im not one who make believes
I know that leaves are green
They only turn to brown when autumn comes around
I know just what I say
Todays not yesterday
And all things have an ending

But what Id like to know
Is could a place like this exist so beautiful
Or do we have to find our wings and fly away
To the vision in our mind?

Im not one who make believes
I know that leaves are green
They only change to brown when autumn comes around
I know just what I say
Todays not yesterday
And all things have an ending

But what Id like to know
Is could a place like this exist so beautiful
Or do we have to take our wings and fly away
To the vision in our mind?
