Meanderings: At 7:30 AM this morning, the thermometer on the front porch was registering 4 below zero. Burrrr.... That's long-john weather. It's also for those who care, ice-fishing weather. No, I don't care, and I don't ice-fish. What gives us who live in these Northern climates hope at this time of the year is the observable objective fact that the days are getting longer. Spring is indeed coming.
Michigan State University beat the University of Michigan in men's basketball last night. Hurrah! Go Green! A few short weeks and the NCAA dance will commence. I'm not really following who's ranked and so on. It's just that the NCAA dance is the next big thing after the Super Bowl, and is a sign of the coming of Spring. A hundred years from now who will care about which school won the NCAA in 2005? Whose going to really care a year from now?
That's just it. Fame and glory quickly fade; here today, gone tomorrow. True worth and meaning in life is found in those things that encompass more then just this cosmos. Yes, we can and should enjoy the legitimate things of this life such as sports and so on. We just need to hold them loosely, and not let them become idols.
Well, enough meandering for now.
