I believe that if money is being made and no work is being done, you should ask why; that tools and land are the only things worth owning; that working with your hands and working with your head are equally valid endeavors; that Beethoven, Van Gogh and Tesla were a little insane and that the world needs a little more insanity.
I believe that fundamentalists of all stripes are missing the point; that fish need bicycles after all (and I am not quoting Irina Dunn); that being human is something to live up to, not an excuse; that humans are physical, emotional, intellectual and spiritual: ignore this to your detriment.
I believe that there is nothing on this planet more beautiful, and nothing more worth being frustrated by, than a woman; that serendipity trumps a Disneyland ride any day; that love never fails; that Glen Canyon Dam will fail. I believe in the Doctrine of Unexpected Results: don’t fuck with things you don’t understand.
I believe the orthodoxies of catechisms and colleges to be equally inert; that the answers we’ve come up with so far are wrong; that reptiles were here before us and have a better chance of being here after. I believe in Newtonian physics.
I believe that language is tied to our very existence. And on that note, I believe that Red Dirt Girl is the best song ever written.
