You don't have to part from your penny in exchange for my comment: I fully agree with you in you ...

Your posts are like a gamble, I'm not sure if I'm going to get a nice message or a mean one, so I cross my fingers before I look, if I'm in the mood. If I'm not in the mood, often I just let the alerts go.

When you say "YOU" do you mean me personally or is that a general you.

Sure I would love someone to make a difference in my own life, heck, why not. But I don't "badly" need it. I have got enough love in my own life, but who will say no to more?

A penny for your thoughts.

Are you familiar with "Elegy written in country churchyard" by Thomas Grey?

Beautiful poem and very relevant to your thoughts.
The world needs more idiots like me, all the others think they are clever.

Grey makes a comparison between the simple life and pleasures of the poor to those of the rich and powerful..... but the end is the same. And the unassuming life of the poor more significant than that of the rich.

yes i agree with that... but i am really not disparaging the wealthy. i am just saying the poor or the ordinary people without political power are not "nobodies." i am saying no one is a nobody, and whether you are rich or poor, powerful or ordinary, you are important in your own way, to the world. :)
