How To Be Irrelevant.

1.) Get out of bed with no regard for what just happened.

2.) Eat or drink whatever tastes good, when you are hungry, as long as it is not spoiled or contaminated with the following:

  • a.) unacceptable microbes;
  • b.) known poisons;
  • c.) plastic;
  • d.) paint

3.) Look at your hands, or your feet, and decide what they can do today; then, use them and do it.

4.) When you have finished what you started, decide whether the result is clean, beautiful, appreciable, or useful; if any of the above, keep it.

5.) Choose a place for what you just did, either solitary or capable of being shared with others, and put it there – offering to barter for life’s essentials in exchange, should your needs arise.

6.) Then, do something else.

7.) Go to bed, sleep until you wake up, and do it all again.


Nobody will notice. Nobody is watching. Eventually, somebody might, but you won’t. You’ll just be living.

Happy Monday! 😀

    1. I’m watching Hangar 1: the UFO Files. It is almost 3 am. I just ate almost a whole can of apricots. That is what is wrong with me. BUT! My concert program is ready for first rehearsal, and. Yesterday was the anniversary of my dad’s passing. It’s been a philosophically draining week. Message me, N?

  1. Thank you to whomever, either in the wee hours or just a moment ago, selected and then read this piece. The timing for me to revisit it could not have been more poignant. I feel your presence, my reader. Thank you.
