Deep Thoughts, Manomet, Plymouth, Massachusetts, USA



Walking is a great stimulant for thinking deep thoughts. Not quite origin-of-the-universe kind of deep but regular-Joe-kind-of-deep.

I was thinking about mediocrity. How most of us are - average in most things. Some people are great in almost everything they attempt but generally, most folks are just average (myself included). That being said, at the same time, are we all born with some innate passion or skill or talent just waiting to be revealed?  Some strength that far exceeds mediocrity? Do our parents uncover it early and nurture it or, is it left to trial and error as we grow up? If we miss the cue that reveals the talent do we get another chance to uncover it or, are we doomed to blunder aimlessly through life having missed out? Can we revisit it later? I don't know - I was just thinking about it.....you decide.



People ask me how do I regularly walk 4-5 miles at one stretch, particularly when it is cold and uncomfortable outside? I pondered on that as I walked and realized the simple truth: I put one foot in front of the other and repeat as necessary. It is really that simple.

Okay, so they weren't very deep thoughts after all.  What do you expect from just a regular Joe?

  1. We are a spiritual being having a human experience, and not the other way around.

    We have the ancestral cellular DNA of our ancient ancestors. Many people do not yet realize the potential they house within…through various programming they/we have forgotten the power each individual has and holds within.

    Joe there is nothing average about you. You are unique unto yourself as we all are. Mankind lumped us into categories, giving us the illusion that we must compare ourselves to each other which make us think we always have to outdo someone else. People need or stop competing and just be themselves. You have done that and continue to do it on a daily basis…being out in nature in deep thought…connecting to the Universe in a way that only you as an individual can do. You are doing it your way.

    The mass of people that inhabit this known world need to wake up, stop the blame game…turn of the MSM and go Within to their inner Kingdom all while staying away from anything connected to spending one day a week or various other hours listening to some “official” who tell them what to think but has never taught anyone how to think and be responsible for themselves.

    Average Joe, ha…I say know.
